Church of God performs baptism according to the Bible.
Why we should be baptized?

Man is mortal. All man has become a slave to death. Then why? The Bible tell us that all men come to die on account of their sin.

Rome 6:23 『For the wages of sin is death……』

In order to receive eternal life, the salvation, our sin must be disposed of.
The baptism is the first step we can take toward salvation.
Baptism is the gift of God.

Acts 2:38 『Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.』

Rome 6:3-11 『Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life… Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him… In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.』

1 Pet. 3:21 『...and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also─not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God.』

The purpose of the law of baptism is not the wash the dirt off of our body, but to wash the sin off of our soul. So we may be revived.

Jesus Christ made atonement for our sins by shedding His blood on the cross and then resurrecting, because to make us realize the principle of the forgiveness of sins and rebirth. As Jesus died on the cross, our body should be buried through baptism. And as Jesus rose from death, we are to be born again.

The baptism is truly blessing of God.
Through baptism, we receive the forgiveness of our sins and the Holy Spirit.
We can not enter the Kingdom of Heaven without forgiveness of sins and the Holy Spirit. That is why we are baptized.
Come to church of God and be baptized. You can partake the blessing of God and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Referring to the dictionary, the term of 'baptism' derived from the Greek noun of 'baptisma' which means to perform it with water by immersing in water completely in the Early Church. After baptism, a man begins officially the religious faith to God Elohim since he washed his sins inwardly and come near Heavenly Parents. There is no rule to let a man study the Bible ahead of baptism, rather a sinner has to be baptized as soon as possible in order to be accepted by the Holy Spirit and Jerusalem God the Mother.
