Christianity Baptism According To The Bible Explained.

What Does The Bible Teaches About Baptism?

What Is Baptism In Christianity. 

Baptism is a Public Declaration to The World That You Are a Proselyte. Baptism is not sprinkle, it is to completely submerge someone under water calling upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 2:38 

Jesus was baptized by John Baptist in the Jordan river which means that for you to be baptized the biblical way, you cannot be sprinkled. 

There should be enough water to cover your entire body, because the act of baptism is a symbol of the burial of Christ Jesus. Matthew 3:13,16

There is also the baptism of the Holy Spirit/Ghost; which is the act of being filled with the Spirit of God, and this is proven by you speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Acts 2:4

Who Should be Baptized?

Baptism is for everyone, because we were all born in sin and shaped in iniquity. It is one of the necessities of God's salvation plan for the human race. You must be born again if you want to enter the Kingdom of God. 

Acts 2:38 

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

According to this well established Bible verse, baptism is not only for those who were brought up into the church from a tender age and so will have a better chance at making the big decision to serve the Lord.

However, baptism is for (everyone) according to the above text. The blood of Jesus was shed for the gun men, the robbers, the harlots, the drug addict, atheist and every other person who may think that they are not qualified for baptism. 

I am here to tell you that you are the ones that are qualified because Jesus did not came for the perfect Pharisees. He came that those who really need a physician might not perish but have everlasting life.  

Luke 5:32 

 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

What is The Baptism Name?

Acts 2:38 

 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

The baptism name is Jesus. The Apostle Paul clearly declared that "every one" should be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for forgiveness from our sins.

Acts 4:12 

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Baptism should only be done in the name of Jesus. Because under the whole heaven, there is absolutely  no other name that can save us. So our baptism must be done in the name of Jesus because salvation is not found in any other. 

Matthew 28:19 

 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Now according to the above verse which many have misinterpret... Notice that (name) is singular, not plural. Therefore at your baptism, your baptizer should not repeat Father, Son and Holy Ghost, because those are titles. 

The name of the Father, the name of the Son and the name of the Holy Ghost is Jesus. 

How do I know that? 

Because the scriptures above declare it clearly. Here are other scriptures to prove that Jesus is God. 

John 14:9 

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The Word that the text above is referring to is Jesus. Because according to John 1:14: "The Word became flesh and dealt among us and we beheld His glory,"

Therefore, our baptism should be in the (name) of Jesus and no other because salvation is in no other name.
