2 Baptism is not always Baptism Many words are used today in ways the Bible does not use the word “I was baptized as an infant. Do I have to be baptized again?” “I was baptized to join a church. Is that baptism acceptable?” “Does it matter that I was baptized in the __________ church?”

3 Baptism is not always Baptism Not every claim for baptism is a valid baptism that is acceptable to God. Many have been “baptized” - but their baptism does not meet the requirements of the commands in the New Testament. There are three essentials in the New Testament for a baptism to meet the requirements of God.

4 Three Essentials for Baptism 1.Mode – burial, immersion Not: sprinkling, pouring Romans 6:3-4 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

5 Three Essentials for Baptism 1.Mode – burial, immersion Not: sprinkling, pouring 2.Subject – believer, repent, confess Not: Infant Acts 8:36-37 36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?" 37 Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

6 Three Essentials for Baptism 1.Mode – burial, immersion Not: sprinkling, pouring 2.Subject – believer, repent, confess Not: Infant 3.Purpose – salvation, forgiveness, wash away sins Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 22:16 And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.'

11 Baptized but not immersed? Many have been “baptized” as an infant An infant can not believe, repent or confess Mark 16:16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins Romans 10:10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

12 Immersed but not baptized? The purpose of baptism is also important Acts 2:38 – for the remission of sins Acts 16:22 – wash away sins Acts 3:19 – sins blotted out Mark 16:16 – saved 1 Peter 3:21 – baptism saves us
