What is Water Baptism?
Water baptism is one of two experiences for every person (salvation and water baptism) that should always follow repentance and faith toward God.
It is an outward action of an inward commitment. Therefore, it follows:
Repentance (Acts 2:38),
Receiving the Word with gladness (Acts 2:41) and Faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 8:12, 36-38)
and signifies the death, burial, and resurrection into newness of life (Romans 6:3-5)
It came to pass on those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. Mark 1:9-10 (NKJV)
Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See. Here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” So, he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. Acts 8:36-38
