Ps. 78:1-4; Mt. 3:13-17; Mk. 10:13-16; Acts 2:38-42; Gal. 3:26-29
In the New Testament it was through baptism that disciples pledged allegiance to Jesus as Lord. Baptism identifies us with His life, death and resurrection. It’s a sign of being washed clean and stepping into the life of the Spirit as a follower of Christ. Baptism also helps others see what He has done in our lives. In this way we are seen to belong to Jesus and His people. In the light of all this we don’t baptise infants but it’s important to help children follow where others have gone before.
