  • Acts 238
  • 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.

You believe in baptismal regeneration.
Billy Graham on Baptism
  • Q Is baptism necessary for salvation?
  • A Mr. Graham has stated I believe baptism is
    important, and I have been baptized. But I think
    we violate the Scriptures when we make baptism
    the prime requirement for salvation.
  • If baptism were a requirement for salvation, we
    would certainly say that. But you couldnt
    support that knowing, for example, that the thief
    on the cross had no opportunity for baptism or
    church membership (www.billygraham.org)

Billy Graham Evangelistic Assoc.
  • Letter dated 3Dec1990 from Dr. Victor B. Nelson,
    Exec. Assistant, to Mr. Wilton Black
  • baptism is an outward sign and symbol of what
    the cleansing power of the blood of Christ has
    done in washing away our sins, indicating that
    they have been atoned for on the cross of
  • Ephesians 28-9 and Titus 35-6 make very clear
    the fact that we can do nothing to attain our
    salvation except believe.

Titus 35
-Ferrell Jenkins, GOT, 20Dec90
Washing of Regeneration
  • Church cleansed with the washing of water by
    the word, Eph. 526
  • Born of water the Spirit to enter the kingdom
    of God, John 35
  • Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins
    Acts 2216

Titus 35
-Ferrell Jenkins, GOT, 20Dec90
Washing of Regeneration
  • Baptism is the means by which Gods mercy saves,
    Eph. 526 (Rom. 63)
  • Obedient faith does not equal earning salvation
  • Eph. 28-9 Saved by grace through faith
  • Lk. 1710 Obedient yet unprofitable
  • Acts 1035 Work righteousness
  • Jas. 224 Justified by works (of faith,
    obedience), not by faith only

Paul was sent not to baptize, but to preach.
  • 1 Corinthians 117

Preaching and Baptizing
  • Point of emphasis is the message, not the
  • Jesus commanded Teach, baptize teach, Matt.
  • Was Paul disobedient since he baptized some? 1
    Cor. 114-16
  • Point Lest someone use his name is a divisive
    way, 1 Cor. 111-13

  • Emphasis is placed on second part without
    negating the first
  • He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in
    Him who sent Me. John 1244
  • Let not yours be the outward adorning but let
    it be the hidden person 1 Pet.
    33-4 (RSV)
  • did not send me to baptize, but to preach 1
    Cor. 117

Context Rejects because of
  • Object of question What must be done to remove
    the guilt of sin? (Acts 237)
  • Object of answer To remove their guilt and
    save them from their sin (Acts 238-40)
  • Action About 3,000 accepted his word and were
    baptized (Acts 241)
  • Result Saved (Acts 240-41, 47)
  • Added together after (not before) baptism

The Definition of eis Rejects because of
  • Preposition governing the accusative denoting
    entrance into, or direction limit into, to,
    towards, for, among (Thayer, 183)
  • Coordinate conjunction that connects two verbs of
    equal rank (repent be baptized)
