An anonymous reader asks:
What do I have to know to be baptized?
Baptism, or immersion, is an outward public declaration of your inward acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal savior. You need to know that Jesus died to pay the debt owed because of your sins, and that he was resurrected that you could have eternal life through Him (John 3:16).
Water baptism is an essential step of obedience toward Christ. He has commanded us to be baptized (Mat 28:19, Acts 2:38), and is an important declaration of your submission to Christ as your Lord.
