A New Life Begins

The Bible calls baptism "the washing of rebirth" because it is a spiritual rebirth and the beginning of a new life (see Titus 3:5 and John 3:5). This new life is possible because Christ has overcome the power of sin by his resurrection.

As your sins are forgiven during baptism, a spiritual transformation occurs--the death and burial of the sinful being and the rebirth of a spiritual, eternal life. The blood of the Lord Jesus brings your spiritual being back to life.

            "And you were buried with [Christ] in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses" (Colossians 2:12,13).

The moment you come up out of the water, you become a new being who has escaped the punishment of sin and possess the hope of eternal life.
