Baptism

Karen Wolff’s How to Share Your Faith argues that many Christians become somewhat intimidated when it comes down to sharing their faith. She further states that Jesus’ Great Commission was never intended to be an impossible burden. Jesus commanded us in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Through this scripture you are witnessing the Word of God in order that others may share in the salvation experience similar as you.

When you share Jesus, you should use your personal testimony and give scripture. An unbeliever is bound to hear what thus says the Lord. This prompts them to act or become convicted by the Holy Spirit. Professing Jesus Christ publicly is an act of faith and assurance. One of the greatest blessing you can ever give a person is leading them to Jesus Christ. When an unbeliever makes a commitment to Christ and accepts Him as Lord and Savior, salvation is imminent and baptismal should follow. The Baptismal method that we use is complete immersion; being take under the water. However, we do recognize and accept other’s baptismal experience by way of Christian Experience.

Baptism is an act of obedience that declares one’s faith. Baptism is a test of whether a person is a true follower of Jesus in his or her obedience to Jesus’ commands. As instructed in Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus commands Baptism. It’s not an option, but a commandment for those who are believers in Christ Jesus. Matthew 3:13-17 gives an account of the baptismal of Jesus by John. Not only does Jesus commands for the Saints to be baptized, but He himself also led by example.
