Baptism not baptism

  1. 1. 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?”
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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.

And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

Three Essentials for Baptism 1.Mode – burial, immersion Not: sprinkling, pouring  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. 2.Subject – believer, repent, confess Acts 22:16 And now why are you Not: Infant waiting? Arise and be baptized,  3.Purpose – salvation, forgiveness, wash away sins and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.'
