    Are you a believer in Christ's redemption but reluctant to be baptized? Do you have many unanswered questions with regards to the necessity of water baptism? You are not alone. Many young people are in your shoes. Here are some simple answers to your questions.

    Water baptism is an ordinance of the Lord by which those who have repented and come to faith express their union with Christ in His death and resurrection, by being immersed in water in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus considered water baptism important.

     He did not begin His public ministry until He presented Himself for water baptism and commanded His disciples to baptize those who believed. Some of the reasons for water baptism are: (i) It is a mark of discipleship (ii) It is a public declaration of identification with Christ (iii) It signifies our death, burial and resurrection to a new life (iv) It is a mark of obedience to Christ's command (v) It shows our connection with the Church, the body of Christ.

    Challenge: Water baptism is a mark of discipleship
    Prayer: Lord, I submit to your ordinance.
