Baptism

The greatest baptism is recorded in Matthew 3:13-17 when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. This became the greatest reason, and example, of why we are to be baptized today. Baptism is a symbolic way to let everyone know you have asked Jesus to be your savior. It shows that you have a relationship with Him. 

Baptism does not mean that you are saved and neither does it mean you are closer to God.
