Baptism is a decree of the Lord Jesus with a symbolic character. We believe that at the time of the New Testament, only people who were reversed in the wrong way (Acts 2,38; 9,18f), to whom the Lord had opened their hearts (Acts 16,14f) and who really believed had become (Acts 8,12 and 37; 18,8). Such people were baptized into the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit by immersion (Mt. 28,19). Biblical baptism is the external representation of inner reality in the heart of the saved. With his step of obedience, the believer confesses to believe in his crucified, buried and risen Savior, which is also to be represented by baptism (Rom. 6,3-11).
