What is baptism?
Baptism has been described as ‘an outward sign of an inward faith’.
Faith is an invisible, intangible thing and needs to be expressed in action. We can show people what they cannot see; we can declare what they may not already have guessed, that our faith is in Jesus Christ. Baptism might also be called ‘The badge of discipleship’. Just as many people wear a badge to identify themselves with a certain movement, so we may look upon baptism as a way of showing people that we belong to Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of beginning the Christian life.
