The symbolism of baptism is rich. Jesus descended to earth, died, was buried, resurrected and then ascended to Heaven. When you are baptized, you descend into the water symbolizing dying to yourself, being buried in the water, and being resurrected from the water and now will ascend to heaven when Jesus calls you home. Baptism publicly identifies you with Jesus Christ. It outwardly proclaims what has happened on the inside. Romans 6:4 says “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life”.
