Romans 6:4

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

 

Water baptism gives a visual demonstration of salvation. It pictures the believer being immersed in the person of Jesus and the new man in Christ rising to walk in newness of life. There is a sense in which a believer attends the funeral of their old self when they are baptized. It is only through the resurrection of Jesus Christ that it is possible for us to walk in newness of life.
