Historically, the first step new followers of Jesus have taken is to follow His example through baptism. Jesus died, was buried, and rose on our behalf and He asks us to demonstrate our faith in Him by symbolically doing the same in water. The water has no power. Jesus gives us new life. But, it is important to publicly profess our faith, and the initial way that is done is through baptism.
