Guard The Gospel Study Series on Baptism

746 views

Published on

Do we need to be baptized? How do I help someone to understand the importance of baptism? What scriptures in the bible can I use to share about baptism, in a 1-hr study? These are some questions we all have sometimes and the study explains in brief, how we can help someone to understand baptism better.
The slides are meant to be used in a class for Guard the Gospel, so that the Christians can then share the lessons learned to help non-christians understand the topic of baptism.
