Baptism.  What’s the big deal?  Why does it matter whether or not you decide to get dunked under some water?  We can only answer those questions by going back a couple millenia and entering into the story of Jesus.  To him and his followers Baptism wasn’t a ritual, or a rite you did by rote.  It was a powerful turning point in your life.  Today we get to see someone in our church follow Jesus under the water and out to new life.
