The rite of baptism is the door way to the body of Christ, the church. Baptism is a burial in a watery grave. It symbolizes the putting down of the old man and being raised in the newness of life. It is a public confession that states I once was lost, but now I am saved, I am dedicating this body, the temple of the Holy Spirit, to the service of Jesus Christ to the honor and glory of God, that I am bought with a price and paid for, I am no longer my own but God's.
