There is a lot of symbolism taking place during a baptism ceremony. Probably the closest
parallel to a baptism ceremony is a wedding ceremony. Both are used to publicly mark the
beginning of a covenant – a lifelong commitment to another. The action of being baptised
is like the action of exchanging wedding rings after declaring your vows. The rings represent a
husband and wife’s commitment to one another; while the act of baptism represents our
commitment to place Christ and no other in control of our lives. Like a marriage ceremony,
baptism is something you’re only supposed to do once in your life – at the start of your
commitment to follow Christ, not after you’ve been living with Him for years.
