What the Bible says about Baptism:

  • Baptism washes away sin.  (Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16)
  • Baptism comes with the gift of the Holy Spirit.  (Acts 2:38)
  • Unites us with Christ. (Romans 6:5) – put this one on screen
  • We put on Christ.  (Galatians 3:27) – put this one on screen
  • Baptism enters you into membership of the body of Christ.(1 Corinthians 12:12-13) put this one on screen
  • Baptism saves you. (1 Peter 3:21) – put this one on screen

The popular next question then is who should get baptized?  Again, let’s go to Scripture:

Who should get baptized?

  • Those who believe.  (Mark 16:16)
  • Those who repent.  (Acts 2:38)
  • Those who can appeal to God for a good conscience.  (1 Peter 3:21) – put on screen
  • Those who have heard and then decided they want to follow Jesus.  (Acts 8:35-39; 16:14-15; 16:32-33) – put all three on screen

What is the method by which someone is baptized?

  • The Greek word for baptism is baptizo, which means to dunk, sink, or dip.
  • Rhantizo is the Greek word for sprinkle.

How is this not a work, taking away from the free gift of grace?

  • It is the powerful working of God.  (Colossians 2:12) – put on screen
  • Jesus said we have to take hold of it.  (Mark 16:16)

Don’t be like the shot that rimmed out and caused someone to settle for second.  Go all in!
