Why should a follower of Jesus be baptized?

Reasons:

  1. Because God commands it, and it pleases God.
  2. Because Jesus modeled it for us, and it is part of doing the right thing.
  3. Because the apostles established it, and it was first-church practice.
  4. Because baptism is a public witness of our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Clarification: What are we baptized in before we are baptized in water?

Challenge: We are living out either 2 Timothy 1:8 or John 12:42-43!
