Baptism isn't required for salvation—but it is the next step of faith for believers and is for believers only. Christian baptism by immersion in water is a public identification with Jesus Christ and is symbolic of His death, burial, and resurrection.
WHY GET BAPTIZED? Because you want to follow Christ's example (Mark 1: 9), and Jesus told all believers to do it and set an example by being baptized. (Matthew 28: 19-20) Baptism is an opportunity to identify ourselves with the Savior and show the world that you are a follower of Christ! (1 John 2: 3; Acts 18: 8)
