Baptism  is symbolic showing that water is not the most important factor.  This is the point made by the apostle Peter in his first letter, when he explains that baptism is not the removal of dirt from the body (1 Peter 3:21). Baptism is not like taking a bath, something else is involved which makes a difference.  He that believeth and is baptised shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned (Mark 16:16). Baptism must follow belief.  It becomes a seal of assurance and declaration of belief
