I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.—Genesis 9:13
Baptism by immersion is a symbol of the death, burial, and Resurrection of the Savior. In a similar way, it represents the end of our old life of sin and a commitment to live a new life as a disciple of Christ.—Preach My Gospel
