Baptism is a public testimony identifying a believer with the death, burial,  and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  As we take this step of being baptized we are making a public statement to our church family that we have been born to newness of life through Christ. “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).  We have become the property of Jesus Christ and our old life has died and has been buried with Him.  Our new life is possible through His resurrection.  Through this public act of baptism a  believer is declaring that he/she now belongs to Christ and now lives for the honor of Jesus Christ and His name.
 
In the second chapter of Acts, Peter gives a powerful presentation of the gospel to the men of Judea.  He concludes his message with the following statement: (Acts 2:36) “Therefore let all the House of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” 
 
Some of the men who heard Peter preaching this gospel message experienced a regeneration of their hearts and replied:  Acts 2:37 “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do’”?
 
Acts 2:38  “Then Peter said to them, repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
 
Acts 2:41  “Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.”
