Baptism is about definitely ending your life without God and entrusting yourself to God completely. Going under water symbolizes dying and being buried, coming up again symbolizes the resurrection to a new life with God.
The decision to be baptized is one of the most important and far-reaching consequences you can make. But if you have come to know Jesus personally and decided to live with Jesus, then baptism is the next logical step. If you have received forgiveness yourself and forgiven others, if you have aligned your life with God and want to live with Jesus as friend, example and authority, then it is time to end your old life without God in a solemn and festive ceremony, and from then on to live with Jesus as a new born person.
Celebrate the decision: Important decisions in our lives are celebrated appropriately. That is why we have birthdays, weddings and many other celebrations. Baptism should also be celebrated appropriately. Why don‘t you organize a real baptism party where you can invite your family, friends and community. That will give baptism the significance it deserves and is also a good opportunity for friends who don‘t believe in Jesus yet to meet him.
