The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19 (NLT)
Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16 (NLT)
“Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?”
Acts 10:47,48 (NLT)
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
Romans 6:4 (NLT)
