Union With Christ
Baptism is a picture of being buried and raised with Christ. There are many places in Scripture that speak of being joined to Christ. The believer is joined to Christ in eternity. He chose us before the foundation of the world. The believer has a federal union with Christ. He gives us what is His; a perfect life of obedience. It is a fruitful and hopeful union. Believers are also united to each other as Christ is the head of the body. We represent Christ wherever we go.
