I’ve seen many interesting profile pictures on Facebook.

The pictures sometimes show more than facial characteristics of my friends. Many post snapshots of their children, grandchildren and pets. Their family pictures tell stories of relationship, love and commitment.

Immersion baptism tells His story.

Christ Jesus died, was buried and arose from the dead.

Immersion baptism tells the believer's salvation story.

We have been saved by grace, through faith. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We have died to sin. (Romans 6:11) Immersion represents our burial.

We have been born again. (John 3:5-7)

As we come up out of the water, we show our commitment to walk with the LORD. We are new creations in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin (Romans 6:1-7 NASB).”
