“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19 NIV)

Jesus gave us the sacrament of baptism to mark our welcome into God’s family (Matt 28:19). Since baptism is the Christian equivalent of Old Testament circumcision (see Colossians 2:11), baptism is for believers and for their children.  Baptism is a visible sign and seal of God’s forgiveness of our sins.  In baptism, we are identified with Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4).  Baptism is also a sign of our unity with God’s people around the world (Eph 4:4-6).
