SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM
Baptism is a rite of washing with water as a sign of religious purification and consecration. In the New Testament, the significance is seen more clearly. John the Baptist was sent by God to spread the news of the coming Messiah—Jesus Christ.
John was directed by God (John 1:33) to baptize those who accepted his message. John’s baptizing is called “a baptism of repentence for the firgiveness of sins.” Mark 1:4. Those baptized by John acknowledged their sins and professed their faith that through the coming Messiah they would be forgiven. Baptism then is significant in that it represents the forgiveness and cleansing from sin that comes through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
