The meaning of the original word 'baptise' is very helpful in understanding what the Bible teaches. It means 'immersion'. And it was sometimes used to describe a ship sinking, clothes being dyed or a person who was overwhelmed by debt.
We're going to take some time to look at what the Bible says about baptism – why we should be baptised, who should be baptised, and how baptism was conducted.
Read each of these passages from the Bible out loud. To help get a good understanding of what is being said, try to describe what is happening or what is being said in your own words. Then take a moment to reflect and note down what stands out to you as important or significant, or that's really meaningful to you.
