In this short clip, Packer says,
"What baptism is it's a matter of going under water and it's a sign that you've finished with the old life--the life without God that you were living before--
and then you come up from under the water and that is a sign that you are resurrected with Christ.
You are a new creature in him because the Holy Spirit is in your heart and you are a believer and you have a new identity.
You are a Christian now and you will live as a Christian for the rest of your life.
It's a most momentous thing as a matter of fact to be baptized. Well, just by saying that I hope I'm making it clear why baptism is important.
It's important because conversion is important. It's important because knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is important.
It's important because becoming a new creature in Christ is important."
What do you think of his statement about baptism?
1) the going under/ coming up
2) the importance of conversion
Is he a credobaptist? Do you think that his statement fits for paedobaptism as well?
