What is baptism all about, and how do you know if you're ready for it? Let's answer that question for kids and parents.

Key Points:

  • Baptism is when Christians get dunked under water.
  • Baptism might seem weird, but it’s normal for Christians.
  • One of the first commands Jesus gives to new Christians is to be baptized.
  • Baptism is a symbol on the outside for something that happens on the inside.

Memory Verse:

Romans 6:4 For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
