What is baptism?
Baptism is the outward sign of a commitment to Jesus in response to his commitment to us. Using water symbolises two things:

Washing - when Jesus died on the cross, he died to pay our debt with God so we can freely have a relationship with him. Our sin is 'washed' away. The water symbolises what Jesus has done for us.
Drowning - sounds alarming! But the symbolism is of dying to the old life of living for ourselves (going into the water) and instead living the new life of living for Jesus (coming out of the water). The water symbolises our intention to live for him and not for ourselves.
There is nothing magical about the water! The service is a powerful picture of what a person has already received through Jesus.
