Believers Baptism

We Worship our Lord as we follow Him in obedience throught Believers Baptism
 
 
 
 
the Bible teaches that Baptism is a sign,
 
 It is a Sign of Salvation Acts 8:36-37
And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said,
See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.
And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
 
It is a Sign of Obedience Matt 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 
It is a Sign of Identification Gal 3:27
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
 
It is a Sign of Relationship Rom 6:1-4
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 ´╗┐Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up
from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
 
It is a Sign of Unity 1 Cor. 12:12-13
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body,
being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,
whether we be Jews or Gentiles´╗┐, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
