What Is Baptism?
Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. - Romans 6:3-6 (ESV)
What Is Baptism?
• Baptism is an encouragement to the Church
• Baptism is about Jesus
• Baptism is about Jesus death on the cross
• Baptism is about Jesus burial
• Baptism is about the resurrection of Jesus
How Do We Baptize?
Greek word means to plunge, dip or immerse.
Why Do We Baptize?
Baptism is an act of obedience.

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.” - Matthew 28:19 (ESV)

Who Do We Baptize?
Paedobaptism – Infant baptism
Credobaptism – Believer’s baptism

And Peter said to them, “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.” - Acts 2:38 (ESV)
Does Baptism Save?
Pastors don’t save
Churches don’t save
Baptism doesn’t save

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. - Ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV)
Should I Be Baptized Again?
one Lord, one faith, one baptism, - Ephesians 4:5 (ESV)
