What is Baptism?
The Greek word for baptism is: baptizo. The definition is: to be immersed, to be buried in, to be sunken as a ship, to dip, to be put under.
A Picture in Scripture
Mark 1:9-10 (NLT)
One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and he was baptized by John in the Jordan River. And when Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens split open and the Holy Spirit descending like a dove on him.
