Baptism is performed in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. It is a sign of a believer's repentance, the forgiveness of his sins, and his cleansing from sin. In addition, baptism is a sign of the believer's union with Christ. When a believer is baptized, he shares in the death of Christ. He dies in relation to sin and his old and sinful nature. At the same time, the believer shares in the resurrection of Jesus. Through faith, he receives a new spiritual life. Baptism is a sign that we have become part of the body of Christ. In short, baptism is a sign that we have received salvation.
