00757 - The Significance Of Baptism

Through baptism, we symbolically wash away our sins, entering into a new life in Christ. This obedience is a crucial step in our spiritual journey, marking our rebirth as children of God.

The act of being submerged in water during baptism signifies dying to our old selves and rising again to a renewed life in Christ. This shows that we have decided to turn away from our past sin and embrace the teachings and love of Jesus. This transformation is symbolic and a profound spiritual change that strengthens our relationship with God.

Acts 2:38 (GNT) says, "Peter said to them, 'Each one of you must turn away from your sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins will be forgiven; and you will receive God's gift, the Holy Spirit.'" Embracing baptism reinforces our faith and commitment to living a life that honours Him.


Baptism is the public profession of an inward confession.


Lord, thank You that I can be made new through baptism. Amen.

Action Point

If you haven’t yet been baptised, consider enquiring about it with your Church.
