4 We were therefore buried wit him through baptism into death in order that, just a Christ was raised from the death through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. 5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.
27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
16 And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.'
16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Acts 2: 37-38
37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"
38 Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of you sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
I Peter 3:21-22
21 and this water symbolizes baptism thaqt now save you also-not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Bible says that we are good as dead in our sin, yet Jesus Christ came to give us life. In order to experience this new life in Christ our dead sinful selves first need to be buried. Baptism is a type of burial as we're buried under the water.
Baptism also reminds us of how Jesus died and was buried. At baptism we become united with Jesus Christ's death and burial as we are buried under the water.However, just as Christ rose to life from the dead, we also are raised up out of the water to live a new life.
