Water Baptism is not just a tradition of the Church. It is so much more than that. Water Baptism is a powerful expression of gratitude and appreciation to the one who has saved us, set us free, and empowered us with His Holy Spirit to live for and with Him. There is a spiritual power that is manifested in the physical when people follow through in water baptism. Is there power in the act? No. Is there power in the obedience? Yes, because you are submitting yourself to the Lordship of Christ who then pours out the power of His Spirit on you enabling you to walk, live, breath, and move in, through and with Him.
