Transcript of Baptism

Baptism By: Stephanie What is Baptism? Baptism is a public testimony that declares the individual fully and truly believes Jesus is Christ. They have been born again: ready to live the rest of their lives for Christ. Who can be Baptized? Infant Baptism Why Baptism? Any person who believes that they are sinful, Jesus died for their sins and resurrected again
Someone ready to commit to God's service and live for him Jesus was Baptized John the Baptist By John the Baptist who thought Jesus should have been baptizing him
As he exited the water the heavens opened up and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove came upon Jesus
A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Start of his ministry
Foreshadowing his death, burial,
and resurrection
We should follow Jesus' example John 1:29-34
New International Version (NIV)
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”
Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.” Believers Baptism This is taught in the New Testament as a symbol of what happens in the life of a person who by faith believes in Jesus Christ
Represents different things:
Believers heart: goes in dirty and comes out clean
Death, burial, and resurrection of Christ-identify with him
We are all sinners which is spiritual death, being immersed in water is burial, and coming out of the water is resurrection and new self- Colossians 2:12-15
Emphasizes a new believer, being a child of God, live a Christian life not giving sin a place in their lives
Born again-putting to death the sinful nature and bringing to life your new self, ready to walk a Godly life-John 3:3-6
Those who are baptized become members of the church Romans 6:1-4
New International Version (NIV)
What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 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.
Romans 6:1-5

The Message (MSG)
So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good? That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land!

That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we’re going in our new grace-sovereign country. Baptism does not mean you are going to heaven
It isn't necessary for salvation but is Jesus' command No one can be saved by works or ceremonies, which includes baptism Ephesians 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. not mentioned in the Bible
every situation in the Bible clearly says that the person being baptized first believed in Jesus
infants are not mature enough to understand sin and salvation
Jesus says to repent and be baptized- infants can't repent-personal choice between the believer and God
the original Greek word, “baptizo”, meant dip and immerse not sprinkle Interesting Facts When translating the word baptism the translators were told to translate in a general way so that the Catholics who sprinkled infants were not offended. So instead of translating to immerse, like it means, they made the word baptism. How to Baptize Matthew 28:18-20
The Message (MSG)
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
New International Version
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” fulfilled the prophecy of the prophets
came to prepare the way for Jesus
wore camels hair with a leather belt and ate locusts and wild honey-significant because he thought more of his mission than of himself
he was so popular that some thought he was the Messiah
people came from all over repenting and being baptized
preached that someone more powerful was coming after him who would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire
Matthew 3:1-12 Not mentioned in the Bible that only one church has the authority to baptize. All can baptize and be baptized.
Jesus' command was to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit Ephesians 4:1-6
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Jesus' Command Act 2:41
So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 1.Believe
3.Obey Baptism & Circumcision In the Old Testament male infants were circumcised
Some people who support infant baptism suggest that baptism replaces circumcision because they are both mentioned in the same verse
Colossians 2:11-12
In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in baptism.
