Did you know? Jesus never asked His followers to remember His birth, but He did instruct them to remember His death, burial, and resurrection. One of the visible symbols He gave the church as reminders of these things is baptism. Baptism is the public expression of a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Baptism doesn’t make you a Christian, but it demonstrates that you already believe.
“And when you were baptized, it was the same as being buried with Christ. Then you were raised to life because you had faith in the power of God, who raised Christ from death.” – Colossians 2:12 (CEV)
“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
