According to the Holy Scriptures We baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
We immerse under water in obedience to God.|
Baptism represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3&4 and Colossians 2:12). The word baptism come from the Greek word Baptizo. This means to dip or to take under (immerse). Baptism is a public profession of a new believer's faith. We are to follow Christ in Water Baptism.
Baptism needs to be done after conversion, not before. If you were baptized before you were saved, the Apostle Paul says we should "do our old works over again". I strongly encourage you to get baptized even after a new commitment with Christ.

Picture to remember
The representation of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ simply means, that when you get saved, the "old you" dies, and the "new you" rises up, just as Christ rose from the dead on the 3rd day after His crucifiction.|
During our baptism, we represent the death and the burial of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by being immersed under water, and then by being brought back up out of the water we represent His resurrection. Before baptism, at the time of our conversion when we get saved, We are made a new creature in Christ. The old has passed away and all things become new.
(2 Cor 5:17)
We hope this has helped explain water baptism, and the significance of it in our Christian walk.
