What Does the Water Symbol in Baptism?


Water in baptism symbolizes Christ, where, when a person is immersed in water, the old self dies and rises with Christ to become a new creature and is therefore incorporated in their new life with a living community which looks for the coming of the Lord (Romans 6:1-11).

According to the bible, water is the Holy Spirit symbol of purification and repentance and the sacred life of the Holy Spirit. Some churches insist on submersion of the one who is baptised, while others use water, as long as it flows on the head.
