What symbols are shown in the baptism of the church that relate to the beliefs about Jesus?
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.
