Contrary to what I’d thought for many years, water baptism is an essential step in the Christian faith. After much research and Bible study, I finally got immersed baptized by a pastor I respected on Good Friday of 2021.

What’s even more important than water baptism is the baptism of the Holy Spirit that comes from Jesus. The moment you believe that Jesus is Savior, you are baptized with His baptism. You and your sins are crucified with Jesus, and you are resurrected to a new life in Christ. Has Jesus baptized you in the Spirit? Have you been crucified and raised to life with Him?

You can receive Christ’s baptism right now. You can be baptized by the Spirit at this very moment. Just believe. Jesus came, died for your sins, and rose to life. He is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the Messiah.
