1 Bible Baptism vs. Denominational Baptism

2 Baptism and Modern Denominationalism All modern denominations except for a few practice baptism (Christian Scientists and Quakers do not) Many religious people, therefore, have submitted to baptism at some time in their life What, if anything, is to be done with all these baptisms? Are all baptisms accepted by God? Must one re-submit to Bible baptism? Some may be ignorant on the subject of baptism and we handle that the way Paul did (Acts 19:1-9)

3 Denominationalism Baptism: Take Your Pick Should we be sprinkled as an infant like Catholics, Methodists, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Presbyterians? Should we be baptized after we are saved like Baptists, Jehovah’s Witnesses? Should we be baptized in the Holy Ghost like Pentecostals?
