If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, your next step is baptism. Baptism is the way to publicly declare your decision to accept Jesus into your heart, and announce you want a relationship with Him.
There are two reasons that you should be baptized:
Jesus says we should! Matthew 28:19 says, “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”. Even Jesus was baptized so we want to follow His example. Baptism demonstrates submission and obedience to God.
Being baptized is the way to identify yourself as a Christian! It’s the public way to celebrate that your sins have been cleansed and you are now a new creation in Christ. Paul said it best in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
