- Isaiah 7:14 "Since the Church, in Christ, is in the nature of sacrament--a sign and instrument, that is, of communion with God and of unity among all men..."

Obligations of Baptism Mr Beach! Why even have sacraments? We are embodied creatures

God continues to communicate His grace to us through bodily actions, words, signs and symbols. 2 Corinthians 4:4
Colossians 1:13-15 Grace is...... There are numerous scenes in the Gospels were Jesus, through bodily actions helps to heal, restore, encourage, or welcome a person. For example, Jesus: Blesses water and turns it in to wine for a party
Anoints a blind man's eyes with mud
Allows a "sinful woman" to embrace his feet in weeping repentance
Turns a Jewish ritual meal in to a sign and promise of His Presence in the Eucharist Baptism in the Early Church Justin Martyr

"As many as are persuaded and believe that what we [Christians] teach and say is true, and undertake to be able to live accordingly, and instructed to pray and to entreat God with fasting, for the remission of their sins that are past, we pray and fast with them. Then they are brought by us where there is water and are regenerated in the same manner in which we were ourselves regenerated. For, in the name of God, the Father . . . and of our Savior Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit [Matt. 28:19], they then receive the washing with water. For Christ also said, ‘Unless you are born again, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven’ [John 3:3]" (First Apology 61 [A.D. 151]). Augustine

"It is this one Spirit who makes it possible for an infant to be regenerated . . . when that infant is brought to baptism; and it is through this one Spirit that the infant so presented is reborn. For it is not written, ‘Unless a man be born again by the will of his parents’ or ‘by the faith of those presenting him or ministering to him,’ but, ‘Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit.’ The water, therefore, manifesting exteriorly the sacrament of grace, and the Spirit effecting interiorly the benefit of grace, both regenerate in one Christ that man who was generated in Adam" (Letters 98:2 [A.D. 412]). Thus Peter declared, "Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children" (Acts 2:38–39). What does Baptism mean? From the Greek verb meaning: to dip, to sprinkle, to wash Why was Jesus Baptized? Jesus did not need forgiveness of sin, but John's Baptis was an act of righteousness for Jesus and an anointing with the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:13-15
Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.

John tried to prevent him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?”

Jesus said to him in reply, “Allow it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed him. John 1:32-34
John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove* from the sky and remain upon him. I did not know him,v but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the holy Spirit.’ Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.” What about non-Christians? 3 Types of Baptism:
Blood (Martyrdom)
Desire "Do you believe in God the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth?" ""Do you believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father?" "Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who came upon the apostles?" "Do you believe in the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting?" "This is our faith. This is the faith of the Church. We are proud to profess it in Christ Jesus Our Lord." Immersion -
