The Moment of Commitment
Mark 1:4 (NIV) And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Jewish Baptism? Tevilah Mikveh
Matthew 3:13-17(NIV) Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “ I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me ?” Jesus replied, “ Let it be so now ; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness. ” Then John consented.
Matthew 3:13-17(NIV) As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “ This is my Son, whom I love ; with him I am well pleased. ”
Titus 3:5 (NIV) He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 3:20-21 (NIV) God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.
John 4:1-2 (NIV) Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John — although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.
Acts 2:38-39 (NIV) “ Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call. ”
Acts 16:33 (NIV) At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds ; then immediately he and all his household were baptized.
Romans 6:4 (NIV) We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Baptism into Jesus Christ is an essential of our faith
Matthew 28: (NIV) Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
