Scripture Passage: Matthew 3:13-15

The Jordan River flows through Israel to the Dead Sea. It was a safe river to use for baptising people as there were no creatures such as crocodiles!

Anyone who has truly repented of his sins and received God's forgiveness should also be baptised. Even Jesus went through this rite, even though He never sinned. In Romans 6:5, Paul says that baptism signifies that we are united to Christ's death in our baptism and will be united with Him in His resurrection. As we rise from the water, we show to the world that our lives are joined to Christ.

1. Where can a person be baptised?
In water. In a pool, in the sea, in a river - as long as it is safe!
2. Who is eligible for baptism?
Anyone who has truly repented of his sin and received God's forgiveness.
3. Why should a Christian be baptised?
To show to the world that his life has been joined to Christ.

Memory verse: Romans 6:5
Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised as he was. (NLT)
