Biblical Reasons for Baptism

Jesus commanded us. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them …" (Matthew 28:19)


To confess Jesus publicly. "Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 10:32)

To join the fellowship of the church. "Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them." (Acts 2:41)

To follow Christ's example. "When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him." (Matthew 3:16)
