Baptism is more than simply an outward expression. It is part of the plan of Salvation. According to Mark 16:16, individuals must believe and be baptized. Acts 2:38 teaches us that baptism is for the remission of sins. 1 Peter 3:18-21 teaches us that baptism saves us. Not that there isn’t more to living for God, but baptism is part of the process. It should be every believer’s goal to be as Biblically accurate as possible. This is because the Bible contains the teachings of Jesus Christ. The importance of baptism they showed in the Bible is the same importance we need to show today. It is important that we ask the question, “What does hinder me to be baptized?” (Acts 8:16).
