Baptism

Baptism is the first step of repentance.

But why? If baptism is simply getting wet, then what connection does it have at all to repentance?

The explanation is found in the symbolic meaning of baptism. Baptism is much more than merely getting wet. Consider how the apostle Paul describes it and see if you notice anything that you’ve heard before:

“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3-4
