To believe in Jesus Christ is not just a matter of factual belief, but to trust His death and resurrection on the cross as full payment for our sin. Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live in them by faith. It is not about religious performance, but experiencing the gift of an eternal relationship with a loving God. People who make this decision surrender their lives to Jesus Christ allowing Him to be their Lord and Savior.
Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example and command. When Christians are baptized, they enter the water standing just as Jesus stood nailed to the cross, they are then submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus, and then they are raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of your private decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ. For all who are watching, your decision to be baptized invites each of them to celebrate with you as well as lovingly hold you accountable for the decision you have made to follow Jesus Christ.
