Saying Yes! means you acknowledge that you have fallen short of righteousness and God's example of holiness; we call that sin. Then, you believe and confess (say) that Jesus paid for all sins by His death on the cross, and you want His payment to be applied to your life. You have repented (changed your mind, turned, and started going back toward God), confessed, and believed. That's all it takes to become a child of God, a part of God's family. It is the beginning of a lifelong journey to become more like God, to love Him fully and to live the life you were created to have.
Water Baptism is a public declaration of our identification with Jesus; His death, burial and resurrection. By being water baptized you are publicly saying that you have died to yourself and have decided to follow Jesus Christ.
