Title: BAPTISM (Part 2)

BAPTISM (Part 2)
The meaning of Baptism
To understand the whole concept of baptism, we
need to look at scriptures throughout the gospels
in the book of Acts, the Epistles, and personal
letters, so we can grasp the overall meaning.
Well also look at the relationship of baptism to
other biblical concepts.
Baptism into Christ
Matthew 311 (NIV) I baptize you with water
for repentance. But after me will come one who
is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not
fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy
Spirit and with fire.
Baptism into Christ
John 35-7 (NIV) Jesus answered, "I tell you
the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God
unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh
gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth
to spirit. You should not be surprised at my
saying, 'You must be born again.'
Baptism into Christ
Galatians 327 (NIV) For all of you who were
baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with
Baptism with the Holy Spirit
Acts 15 (NIV) For John baptized with water,
but in a few days you will be baptized with the
Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 1213 (NIV) For we were all
baptized by one Spirit into one body--whether
Jews or Greeks, slave or free--and we were all
given the one Spirit to drink.
Baptism and faith
Acts 812-13 (NIV) But when they believed
Philip as he preached the good news of the
kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they
were baptized, both men and women. Simon himself
believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip
everywhere, astonished by the great signs and
miracles he saw.
Baptism and repentance
Acts 238 (NIV) Peter replied, "Repent and be
baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus
Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you
will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Remember that Jesus in Luke 131-7 Emphazised
the need of repentance to those Jews who wanted
to be in a right relationship with God. I tell
you, no but, except ye repent, ye shall all
likewise perish.
Baptism and Salvation
Mark 1616 (NIV) Whoever believes and is
baptized will be saved, but whoever does not
believe will be condemned.
1 Peter 321 (NIV) And this water symbolizes
baptism that now saves you also--not the removal
of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good
conscience toward God. It saves you by the
resurrection of Jesus Christ
Baptism and commission
Matthew 2819-20 (NIV) 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."
Often today you will hear it said that the ONE
baptism that Ephesians 4 refers to is the baptism
in or by the Holy Spirit. And that many of the
references to baptism means Holy Sprit baptism
This overlooks that fact that Holy Spirit baptism
is something that the bible describes as being
given as the Holy Spirit given as He wills.
This cannot be true because the Baptism that
Jesus describes in His commission and which is
found in most New Testament passages was by
Command something that the apostles and we as
servants of Christ are commanded to do. Teaching
people and baptising them and continuing to teach
Baptism and union
Romans 63-4 (NIV) 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.
Galatians 327 (NIV) For all of you who were
baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves
with Christ.
Some things toward Salvation
Hear (Romans 1017, Acts 1114) Believe (John
316, Acts 1631) Confess sin (Matthew 36, 1John
19, James 516) Repent (Acts 319 Luke 13
1-7) Confess Jesus is Lord (Romans 109,
1Timothy 612) Be baptized (Acts 238, Acts
2216 Romans 63-4)
Why we need baptism
The example of Christ (Mark19, Luke 321)
The commission of Jesus (Matthew 2819-20) The
plan of salvation (Acts 238, Mark 1616) The
union with Christ (Romans 63-4)
Baptism Cannot
  • change the heart
  • heart must be changed before baptism
  • hearing the gospel faith changes the heart

The Heart Changes
  • Acts 237,Now when they heard this, they were
    cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest
    of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we

Believing what they heard affected their heart
The Heart Changes
  • Acts 837,Then Philip said, If you believe
    with all your heart, you may. And he answered
    and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son
    of God. So he commanded the chariot to stand
    still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down
    into the water and he baptized him.

Baptism Cannot change your life
Baptism changes your spiritual life and your
relationship with God
Baptism Cannot change your life
Will not make your physical life any healthier
baptized believers often feared for their life in
New Testament Will not necessarily make your
social life any fuller, you may become an
outcast Will not necessarily make your political
life any stronger, some were even unwilling to
confess Christ (John. 1242, 43)
Baptism Cannot change your life
Will not necessarily make your business life any
more successful being a Christian may create
extra bonds, promotions may have to be
crucified Will not make your academic life any
easier Will not necessarily make your family life
any smoother (Matthew 1034-38)
Baptism Cannot
Remove temptation from your life But each one is
tempted when he is drawn away by his own
desires. (James 114) Jesus example Matthew
313 411 Hebrews 415
Baptism Cannot
Prevent All Wrong Simon sinned grievously after
he was baptized (Acts 813, 18-23) Peter
Barnabas (Galatians 211-14) Paul had to
continually discipline his body (1 Corinthians
Baptism Cannot
permanently secure eternal life The bible does
NOT teach once saved, always saved the bible
exhorts baptized believers to work out their own
salvation (Philippians 212 311, 12, 14) the
bible is full of warnings about departing.
Baptism Cannot
Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an
evil heart of unbelief in departing from the
living God Hebrews 312
  • It is a warning to brethren
  • It is a warning to brethren who may have an evil
  • It is a warning to brethren who may depart

Baptism Cannot
Give life to the living (saved), but only to the
dead (Iost) Saved people do not get baptized
sinners get baptized to reach salvation Forgiven
people do not get baptized baptized people get
forgiven (Colossians 212, 13) Living people do
not get buried likewise, saved people do not get
