Hello,

Baptism is the washing with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. It signifies and seals the belief in Christ and the partaking of the benefits of the covenant of Grace and engagement to belong to Him.

Simply put, Jesus was baptized so that he could enter into the Melchizedek priesthood in order to achieve the status of High Priest and offer Himself as a sacrifice for his people's sins. The cleansing in water, signifies a re-birth into a life representing all that is good and holy.

The word 'baptize' is the English form of a Greek word meaning to 'immerse'.
