Baptism is a sign of the beginning of a new life. Our sins are not forgiven by our being baptised. Our sins are forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ. In baptism, we show that we obey the command of Jesus Christ. The followers of Jesus Christ are not baptised to become believers, but they are baptised because they are believers. Our salvation does not depend on being baptised. Baptism is also a demonstration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to the world.
