What does the word Baptize mean?
It means to immerse or dip or to cover wholly with fluid. The Bible shows baptism to be more than “sprinkling”. Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water, and Act 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Turning from the old life of sin to a new life in Jesus Christ! Publicly identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
