What the Bible says about baptism

Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about baptism? You may have heard Bible class teachers and even ministers talk about baptism, but what does the Bible say?

Like virtually any other religious subject there are the various ideas, traditions, and “church beliefs” about things found in the Bible.  When it comes to baptism, people have all kinds of beliefs. Some “baptize by sprinkling” and others “baptize by pouring water on a person’s head.”  Some groups immerse (dip) people in water.  Some claim baptism is something that precedes salvation and others claim it follows salvation. Some churches “baptize infants” and others do not.

In the sea of confusion about baptism, how do we figure out what is true and what is false when it comes to the subject of baptism?  The answer is found in God’s Word, the Bible.

Lesson twenty-two in the free Bible study from www.lordletmegrow.com offers a wonderful study on the subject of baptism.  Verses that talk about the “method” of baptism are offered plus passages that deal with the “purpose” of baptism, the proper “subjects” for baptism, and even the “name” into which people are baptized.  As with the other free Bible study courses, this lesson ends with some Bible study questions.
