In many ways, baptism is the starting point for a life of faith. Certainly, many important thoughts and experiences lead up to baptism for most people, but our baptism is when we publicly announce our decision to “jump in” and follow Jesus for the rest of our lives.
Through baptism we identify with Jesus in his death and resurrection. In a sense we are buried with Christ, allowing our sin to die with him, and we are raised with Christ to new life, cleansed and forgiven through him. So, while baptism is not the finish line of our faith, the Bible insists God does something powerful and important in and through our baptism.
