What is Water Baptism

yulia-sobol-71291The Greek word for ‘baptize’ means ‘to immerse or dip’.  At baptism, a person is momentarily submerged under water as a symbolic gesture of Christ’s death and resurrection.

When you are water baptized, you are symbolically saying goodbye to your “pre-salvation” life and embracing a new life as a follower of Christ.
