Baptism is the outward confession of the inward commitment. The picture of being immersed in water is a parallel to Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.
Communion is a time we remember what Christ did for us on the cross and look forward to when we can share communion with Him after his return. We follow his example by using the bread and fruit of the vine, which symbolizes His body and blood.
