What is Baptism?
To understand what this news regarding Chad Michael Murray is about, you should know the concept. Baptism is an important concept in embracing Christianity. Technically its’ meaning is to ‘dip, plunge, immerse’. In essence, it means identification with Jesus Christ on a personal and public level. There are some basic beliefs that this act expresses.
One is that you have turned from an old life of sin into a new, pure one with Jesus Christ. Secondly, it means you are publicly identifying with birth, death, and resurrection of Christ. And lastly, you are openly joining the ranks of those who believe and follow the teachings of Christ.
How is it done? The process is simple but it has deep spiritual importance. When you are baptized, water has an important role to express your identity. You stand in the waiting to be baptized to symbolize Jesus dying on the cross. Then you are lowered into the water to symbolize how Jesus was buried in the tomb. Last, you rise from the water to accept and symbolize that Jesus will be resurrected.
