All Things Made New in Christ
In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve lived in a perfect relationship with God. When they were tempted and ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they fell out of this perfect relationship and had to leave the garden. But "God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) Baptism in water and spirit is our birthright as Christians who have accepted Jesus Christ as our savior. Water baptism symbolizes God’s power in our lives to make us a new creation.
