The Example of Jesus
When Jesus came to the earth and began His ministry, He was baptized; and we follow in His example when we get baptized as we go and be the good news of Jesus to every person in every place. The Bible shows us we only need to be baptized once as our relationship with God through Jesus cannot be taken away or restored by actions we take, but instead is permanent because of God’s grace and mercy.
Romans 6:4 says, “We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”
The Bible says that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. It goes on to say that the wages of sin is death, and that death causes an eternal separation between us and God.
But God so loved the world that He gave His only son, Jesus, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. The reason that our faith is in Jesus Christ alone is because Jesus lived a perfect life that we couldn't, He died on the cross to take the punishment for our sins that we deserved. He was buried in a tomb and separated from God that we could never bear. Then He rose from the dead conquering all sin and all death so His words would ring true for all eternity that He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one can come to the Father except through Him.
