What Is Water Baptism?

The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world his or her heartfelt desire to follow Jesus. It is an outward response to the inward reality of one’s belief in the gospel. People often have questions regarding baptism.
