In my church I have often heard that baptism (water) is the outward sign of your salvation while the Holy Spirit is the inward sign. I believe that the water is symbolic of the cleansing of our sins as the Holy Spirit teaches and guide to be more like Jesus. There are things in our lives that are not consistent with the commandments or Jesus' teachings. So, as we study God's Word and learn more about him there is a cleansing or release of those things that are not like Jesus. Let me add that I do believe in water baptism. I am speaking my truth, what is your truth about this topic?
