What is baptism?

The Bible defines baptism as:

A sign of identification

Acts 8:36-38

Symbolic of death and resurrection

Romans 6:4-5

Representative of a cleansing

1 Peter 3:21

Important step of obedience in Scripture

Baptism isn’t what saves you, but it’s an outward symbol of your inner commitment to follow Christ. In a way, baptism is a lot like a wedding ring. The ring doesn’t make you married, but it’s a symbol of your love and devotion to your spouse, and that your life is being lived for someone else.
