In the last 200 years or so, a notion has developed that nothing actually happens at the point of receiving water baptism. This was not the predominant historical view, nor is it a Biblical perspective. Some have a notion that baptism is merely a symbol, or ceremony, in which nothing actually happens or transpires. Further, that baptism is a fairly insignificant and an optional event, which is unrelated to one's salvation. Based on such fallacies, some reason that how or whether, one is baptized, is a non-issue. But, until about 1600 A.D. Christian scholars and theologians universally, and Biblically, taught that baptism was absolutely necessary in order for one to be saved. In the following partial list of fifty five (55) things (arranged in 28 categories), which: happen, occur, or change, upon receiving immersion (as a final step of conversion), we will see that baptism is much more, than a meaningless ceremony of low or no import.
