Check out these personal testimony's from others who have experienced the power and life-changing act of baptism!
The Bible teaches that baptism is the natural step in living a life committed to following Jesus Christ. Jesus was baptized before He began preaching to the people (Mark 1:9) and He commanded others to do the same in His Great Commission, "Go and make disciples of every nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20) Baptism is a display of our love, faith, and obedience to Christ and to demonstrate to the world that we are a Believer. (1 John 2:3)
