Baptism

I have a question. . .what is the evidence for baptism being purely symbolic vs. an actual cleansing of sin? (Forgive the awkward phrasing. I'm not sure how to put it better.) I was always taught that baptism was purely symbolic. But now I've been wondering about it, and. . .I'm just very confused. And both arguments feel convincing at the moment.

Help?

If this has already been discussed ad nauseam, just point me toward the old posts and I'll read them - or let me know and I'll look for them myself. :-)
