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.
