Why should we be baptised?
The first reason we should be baptised is that Jesus commanded us to do so. Second, He was baptized Himself. Jesus loved us enough to identify with us. Third, baptism is a picture of the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour. Fourth, it is also a picture of our experience in salvation—that of dying to the old, sinful self and rising to walk in the new life of the Holy Spirit.
