Baptism is both a declaration and a display of our restored relationship with God. When you are baptized, you are declaring to God’s people that your faith is in Jesus and you are a member of God’s family. When believers are lowered into the water it is a picture of going down into the grave; we are symbolically identifying ourselves with the death of Jesus. Like Jesus, though, we don’t stay in the grave. Coming up out of the water is a picture of being resurrected from the dead to live an entirely new kind of life. A key part of this new life is our new family, the church.
