Scriptural Baptism Why We Need To Discuss This What It Is What It Does
Why We Must Teach This There is error taught by many people on the subject of how one is saved. Because this subject is ignored by so many. Because it is a Bible subject. Souls are at stake The wrong teaching will send someone to Hell.
Why We Must Teach This Jesus taught that there would be those who teach the doctrines and precepts of men. Matthew 15:9 “But in vain do they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men” Authority to determine the truth demands that in order to understand this subject we must learn all of what the word of God teaches on this subject.
What Is Baptism? Baptizo: to immerse, submerge for a religious purpose. Also means a cleansing, ablution, or washing—not of dirt, but of spiritual impurities, uncleanness, or sin. Acts 22:16. “and now why do you delay? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.”
What Is Baptism? A symbolic action recognizing or portraying the Death Burial and Resurrection of Christ. Romans 6:4,5 “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection.”
What Baptism Does It is described as the new birth. John 3:3-5 “Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God….unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
What Baptism Does It saves us. 1 Peter 3:21 “and corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience—through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
What Baptism Does It brings about our salvation Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved: but he who does not believe will be condemned.”
What Baptism Does It is for the remission of our sins. Why do we need this? Because our sins separate us from God (Isaiah 59:2). Acts 2:38 “ And Peter said to them, repent and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
What Baptism Does Puts us INTO Christ where all spiritual blessings are. Romans 6:3 Galatians 3:27 “ For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. The meaning is “you have adorned yourselves with Christ”
What Baptism Does Authorized by God Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit”.
What Baptism Does NOTHING----If done by itself. Must have belief in Jesus as the Christ, the son of God, Must be accompanied with Repentance Must be accompanied with a confession The person must be able to understand why they are being baptized. Something that infants nor the dead can do.
What Baptism Does Since it brings about salvation, it adds us to His church Acts 2:47 “praising God and having favor with all the people. And the LORD was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
What Baptism Does Puts us in the Body of Christ 1 Corinthians 12:13 “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.”
What Baptism Does It is the work of God Colossians 2:12 “having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.”
Conclusion The Bible is plain that Baptism is essential to our salvation. Why do so many religious groups deny such? I don’t know. What we do know is that without baptism no person can be saved based upon what the Bible teaches. Have you been baptized for the remission of your sins?
