Baptism is a little death. At the same time, all of life is baptism.
There is no point at which you will know enough, or have enough faith, or get enough information, to pass the test for entering this community through baptism. There is no test! It’s already completed.
Baptism won’t initiate a perfect life. In fact, you might get more confused or have more questions.
