- It is ones pledge of allegiance to Jesus Christ
- It is ones expression of seeking identification with Jesus Christ
- Its ones opportunity to publicly confess Christ before men
While it is the role of the Holy Spirit to baptize people into the body of Christ (for salvation), water baptism (carried out by men) is how we identify new believers and receive them into the fellowship of God's family, symbolizing their death, burial, and resurrection to live a new life in Christ.
What a day it was. I am very thankful that we could have a little part in God's great big plan.
