As an outward sign of an inward change, baptism is a public
testimony that now you belong to Jesus. Its significance as the sign of the new
birth is fully discussed in Romans 6. There Paul speaks of the transforming
power of grace within the life of the believer. Baptism is also the means of
becoming a member of the church (Compare Acts 2:41, 47).
9. What word, meaning “put in the
grave,” is used to describe baptism?
Baptism symbolizes the death and burial of our sins. When a
dead body is buried, it is more than sprinkled with dirt. For the same reason,
we want our sins to be completely buried.

of God is born again to new life in Christ.
The story of the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26-39) is an
inspiring account of a man searching for truth. As he read the Scriptures, the
Lord directed Philip to him to present the gospel of Jesus. Convicted of his
need of Christ, the eunuch asked to be baptized. So Philip baptized him in a
nearby body of water.
Acts 19:1-5 tells of some people who were baptized more than
once. They had been baptized once at the
preaching of John, but had not yet learned all the truth. Now, as Paul shared
with them additional vital truths, their Christian experience was so enriched
by the new light, they felt their need to be baptized again.

differ from the teachings of the Bible. He speaks to us through the Bible.
Jesus said, “He shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that
shall he speak.” “For he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”
