What is Baptism?
Baptism is an outward act that symbolizes the coming to and accepting Jesus as your personal savior. The purpose of the baptism is to give a visual testimony of our commitment to Jesus.
The symbolism of baptism is that just as Jesus Christ died and was buried we are to be submerged (whether physically or symbolically) under water, and as Jesus rose again from beneath the earth so the baptized person rises again from beneath the water. Under the water is the old, dead, heavy and suffocating life and they come out of the water free, cleansed by the blood of Jesus with a new fresh and purposeful life full of joy!
The Bible teaches us in many places that a commitment to Jesus Christ always precedes baptism. The baptism is your testimony of surrendering your life to Jesus.
Matthew 3:13-17 (King James Version) -
13-Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
