BAPTISM

The Significance of Believer’s Baptism In An Ecumenical Age

what is baptism
What is Baptism?
  • Baptism is a picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • Baptism is the first step of obedience after one believes.

These answers are fine, but doctrinally there remains so much more to be said.

“No man can intelligently and candidly read the New Testament without perceiving that baptism is of solemn import, and designed to exert a momentous influence in the kingdom of Christ.” – Jeremiah Jeter

1802-1880

A powerful preacher and pastor in Virginia.

Baptism is:
  • A Command

Matthew 28:19, 20 John 14:15 Acts 10:48 I John 5:3

  • After Salvation

Mark 16:15-16 Acts 2:41 Acts 8:12 Acts 8:35-38Acts 16:30-33 Acts 18:8

  • By Immersion

Matthew 3:16 Acts 8:38-39 Romans 6:3-5

  • Immediately

Acts 2:41 – “…the same day…” Acts 16:29-33 – “…the same hour…”

What is Baptism?
  • Baptism is a specific act to be administered by a specific body, to persons professing specific qualifications, for the profession of specific truths.
  • When one of these properties is wanting, the transaction is “null and void.”
  • Unless the ordinances are observed as Christ commanded, they are not kept, but perverted.

-J.R. Graves

BAPTISM

Requires the Proper Candidate

  • Biblically, baptism is always of believers.
  • Clearest and best example is the Ethiopian eunuch -Acts 8:36-39.
  • Never in the pages of the Word of God is anyone baptized before salvation.
  • Never is an infant baptized.
  • Never is anyone coerced into being baptized.
  • Never is anyone born-again by their baptism.

BAPTISM

Requires the Proper Mode

  • The mode is the method of baptism.
  • Never in the Bible is any mode of baptism used other than immersion.
  • Two examples are:

Jesus Christ Himself – Matthew 3:16

Phillip and the Ethiopian eunuch – Acts 8:38-39

  • Baptism is a demonstration of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

BAPTISM

Requires the Proper Administration

  • The responsibility of administering baptism was given to the local church by our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • It is an ordinance

An ordinance is ordered by the Lord to be commemorated in the local church. The ordinances are given to the local church, not an individual person.

An ordinance is a picture or object lesson that teaches doctrine. It is a physical picture of a spiritual truth.

BAPTISM

Requires the Proper Administration

  • Jesus Christ did not baptize – John 4:1-3
  • The Apostle Paul rarely baptized – I Corinthians 1:10-18
    • Why? Because baptism is to be performed by the pastor of a church.
    • As Paul was planting churches he would baptize converts to help establish that church – Acts16:33 (Philippian Jailor and his house)

Obedience

  • Baptism is obedience to the command of the Lord Jesus Christ. – Matthew 28:19-20 and John 14:15
  • Baptism should be one of the first acts of obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.
    • Examples

Ethiopian eunuch – Acts 8:37,38

Cornelius – Acts 10:44-48

Apostle Paul – Acts 9:1-19

Philippian jailor – Acts 16:30,31

Lydia – Acts 16:14,15

Crispus – Acts 18:8

Identification

  • We identify with Jesus Christ
    • The Holy Spirit identified with Christ – Mark 1:10
    • The Father identified with Christ – Mark 1:11
    • Christ identified with us at His baptism foretelling his death, burial and resurrection for the remission of our sins.
  • We identify with a body of doctrine
    • Jesus requested baptism from John the Baptist to identify with John’s message – his body of doctrine Mark 1:4, John 1:15, John 1:27
    • The followers of John were identified in Scripture as his disciples – Matthew 9:14, Matthew 11:2 and Luke 11:1 How did these men become John’s disciples? Through baptism; baptism identifies us with a body of doctrine.
  • We identify with a local church

Identification

  • We identify with Jesus Christ
  • We identify with a body of doctrine
  • We identify with a local church
    • A local church and that church’s doctrine – Acts 2:41-42
    • You would want to identify with:
      • Proper biblical teaching on eternal security
      • Proper biblical teaching on salvation – not baptismal regeneration
      • Proper biblical teaching on baptism
  • We re-baptize because the former baptism wasn’t administrated properly or the church that administered the baptism espoused false doctrine.

Obedience

Identification

Submission

  • His submission to Christ and His purpose for the believer’s life.
  • His submission to the local church and it’s authority in his life.

Hebrews 13:17 “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”

1 Peter 5:5 “Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.”
