Jesus IS God in entirety and God's spirit is with them both (Jesus is the "trinity").
Colossians 2:9
"the whole fulness of deity".

If we "abide in" the "doctrine of Christ", we'll have the Holy Spirit of BOTH the Father and The Son....

2 John 1:9
"Any one who goes ahead and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God, he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son".

All we have to do is "go ahead" to MATURITY in Christ (spiritual growth) so that God's spirit is our trainer/teacher instead of 'bible text'.....

Hebrews 6:1
"Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity".

The correct way to be baptised? You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out, you do the I forget the rest of the song, sorry.

Seriously, Peter said in Acts 2:38 Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Mima
Being baptized in The name of The Lord(which Is Jesus Christ). The name Jesus Christ is pronounced when that person goes down in the water & comes up.
Jesus Christ Is The name of the Father-Son & the Holy-Ghost.
Mark 16 v 16 - Acts 2 v's 37-41 Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20.
---Lawrence on 3/5/10


The difference is one is the title and the other is the formal name. "Jesus" is the formal name, and "the Son" is a title of Jesus. "Father" and "Son" and "Holy Spirit" is a title, and "Jesus" is a name. "The Son of man" and "the Son of God" are titles, and "Jesus" is the formal name of the title. Lit.Gk: "Then whom Peter answered, Can somebody not forbid of water, who's these not to be baptized, who also received of his Holy Spirit even as we? And he commanded them to be baptized with Name of the Lord." Acts 10:47,48.

1 God & He has just 1 Church and one Baptism

Eph.4:5 "One Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM" done by the H.S. not some man,

1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit are WE ALL baptized into one body
Baptized by the H.S. not some man into the Body of Christ, not a body of water.
---michael_e on 3/4/10




---Lawrence I agree that "in Jesus name" is in the Bible. I also understand that "in the name of the father son and the Holy Ghost" is in the Bible.
I believe it is correct to say "in Jesus name" in baptism. Question to you is it correct to say "in the name of the father son on the Holy Ghost" when baptizing someone? I feel certain you will disagree with me but I await your answer.
---mima on 3/4/10


It takes Jesus Christ name baptism to get into heaven.
The Man-made trin-relig-org's churches stand here, Matt.15 v 9, 2nd. Cor.4 v 4 in the which the trin-leaders deny Jesus name baptism, & Jesus name bapt Is All part of the wedding garment. John 10 v 1 they are trying to into heaven without Jesus name baptism, Matt.22 v's 11-13 the man here represents All the Man-made relig-org's churches that did Not have the w-garment, Jesus name baptism.
1 God & He has just 1 Church.
---Lawrence on 3/4/10


Eph.4:5 One Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM.
1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit are WE ALL baptized into one body,
Acts 2:5 .. there were dwelling at Jerusalem JEWS(and gentiles?), devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Acts 2:36 .. "let ALL THE HOUSE of ISRAEL
(and gentiles?) know, God has made ..Jesus, who you crucified, both Lord and Christ."
Acts 2:38 "Repent, (because you have killed your Christ) and be baptised.."
---michael_e on 3/4/10


Acts 2 v's 37-41 Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20.
Why?, because Jesus Christ Is The name of The Father-Son & The Holy-Ghost(man says holy-spirit)
Colo.3 v 17 even water baptism in Jesus name, 1st. Tim.3 v 16 is Jesus Christ.
When your baptized in The name Jesus Christ you have His very name applied.
When your baptized in the titles you go down a dry sinner & come up a wet sinner. Nothing is applied, you just got wet.
---Lawrence on 3/3/10


Rodney You are so right as long as you are not baptizing in The Name of Jesus because of a religious Doctrine or the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, because you do not believe in Jesus name Baptism. If you know the name of Jesus represents the Father Son And Holy Spirit Baptism Then that is fine. But Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit is not the name of Jesus. And you have to call on the name of Jesus to get access to the Father and the Holy Spirit only comes in Jesus name. If the Apostles in acts Baptized in Jesus name don't you realize they knew his name represented The Father and knew they did not have to say Father Son and Holy Spirit.
---exzucuh on 1/8/10




Exzucuh is correct The Fathers name is synonmous with Jesus therefore it doesn't matter whether you say it as in Matt28 or Acts 2,38 what matters is whats in your heart
In the Bible most people were baptised before receiving the Holy Spirit (except Cornelius) So therefore it was part of their repentance No Holy Spirit not saved (John3,5 Romans 8,9 Titus3,5) People should be baptised by immersion at an age of understanding and with a view to asking for the Holy Spirit so they are thne raised up a new creation Baptism without the Holy Ghost is like the Baptism of John(Acts19,1-6)
---Rodney on 1/7/10


Jesus Name Is synonymous with the name of God
Name of the Father
John 15:16 whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father -IN MY NAME-, he may give it you.

Name of The Son
John 16:24-26 Hitherto have ye asked nothing -IN MY NAME-: ask, and ye shall receive,

The name of the Holy Spirit
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send -IN MY NAME-, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

---lawson on 12/29/09 Deuteronomy 12:5 But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to PUT HIS NAME THERE,
God puts his name where he is. He put his name in Abraham, then Isaac, then Jacob, then Israel. It was the God of Abraham that distinguished The one God from all others. Abraham's name was synonymous with God. Now that Name is in Jesus and that is why we use Jesus Name, God is the God of Jesus. And God has made his name above every Name in heaven and earth.
Isaiah 30:27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far,
Jesus said you believe in God, believe in me also.

Exodus 23:20-21 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not, for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my NAME IS IN HIM.

God put his name in the Angel that led Moses and he would not pardon sin but had authority to kill transgressors.
God has put his name in Jesus to have authority to forgive sins and give eternal life.

John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself,

Then Peter said unto them, Repent,and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remissions of your sins,and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts2:38 You must be baptized in Jesus name. When you pray, you pray in Jesus name, when evil is coming against you you plead the blood of Jesus. Why would you be baptized in any other name? Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on Me,but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. John 12:44-45.

Water baptism Mark 16 v 16,according to Acts 2 v's 37-41 Fulfills Matt 28 v's 19-20.
When your baptized In The Name 'Jesus Christ'
you Are being baptized in the Name of The Father-Son & Holy-Ghost. Being baptized in the titles you go down a dry sinner & come up a wet sinner. Being baptized in The Name 'Jesus Christ' you have that Name applied to your soul. When the rapture takes place, Jesus is coming for those that are called by His Name. NO one found in scriptures that baptized in the titles, they All were baptized in The Name of The Lord & Jesus Christ Is The Name of the Lord.
---Lawrence on 8/4/09


#1 I've seen a lot of replies(concerning the trinitarian baptism)that say "if Jesus said it must be so," and that is true. If He said it, than that settles it. However, I would have to wonder, if that three titled formula was to be used for baptism, why did those disobedient Apostles decided to change it to Jesus Name. I mean isn't this the same Jesus that taught them, that walked with them, and even instructed them to go to Jerusalem. Jesus told Peter to feed His sheep, and he goes and feeds them foolish, made up baptism requirements??

Jesus knew we would follow his command so why would he give that command knowing that we will follow it. And by the way the bible said Johns baptism was unto repentance it didnt state what name he baptized in. And if Jesus commanded his disciples to baptize in father son and holy ghost obviously they did baptize some people in father son and holy ghost, the bible said that many things that happened throughout Jesus time on earth arent recorded, maybe thats why there is no record of people baptized in father son and holy ghost. You know what i prove for myself? Yes!! God uses people who are baptized both in Jesus and father son and holy ghost. So it makes no sense argueing over which name is correct because both are biblical!!
---kerisha on 6/20/09


I have looked at sixteen differnt translations none say the words Father, Son Holy Spirit were not in the original.

The J. Witness have their own translationof the bible. The Mormons have their own bibles so it seems not that you have your own bible.

The Doctrine of the Trinity is true. There is only One GOD. But JESUS and the Father are two different persons. Otherwise JESUS would have been praying to himself and commending himself while being in two places at the same time.
---Samuel on 6/18/09


See what I mean,this is how desperate some of you are.The Apostles baptized in Yeshua Name, not in the formula from Matthew, and yet the first thing you say is trinity is true. No its not. In the resteration scriptures all it says in Matthew is baptize in my Name ( Yeshua's Name). Because its not in the original mauscripts.

Jeremiah 8:8

8"How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
---wayne on 6/17/09


JESUS said in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Since He is the founder of our Faith and GOD who came down to earth. His is the final word in the matter.

So why do the writers of the New Testament only mention in the name of JESUS? Some do away with the trinity to give an answer they like. But there is a much easier explaination. Because they were just emphazing JESUS in their letters.

The Trinity doctrine is true and founded upon Scripture. So let us do what JESUS said. Immersion in the name singular of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three person one GOD.

Acts 8:16 (New International Version)
16because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them, they had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
No trinity her either, why? In the resteration scriptures from the actual Aramaic the verse in Matthew says baptize in my Name ( Yeshua) not in the name of a trinity, maybe this is why the rest of the New Test is silent on this when speaking of baptizim/

Acts 10
48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Acts 19
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Acts 22
16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

I could only find 1 verse that say's Father, Son & Holy Ghost.

I believe it's in the "reason" why one choose's to be baptised, Not, in who's name, other than the Lords of course, if none other, It is his name in which man MUST be baptised or they won't enter the kingdom of God, Need the verse?

Jesus Himself commanded "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."

That settles the issue.

** But, what is even more important is the reason a Christian is baptised - it's an outward testamony of an inward change brought about by accepting Christ as Savoir**

And just to whom is this "testamony" [sic] made?

All the early descriptions of baptism state that, like their precedent the mikveh, they were carred out in the nude with only a VERY small number present (including a deaconess for a female baptizand).

"Accepting Christ as Savoir" [sic] is nowhere in the Bible.
---katavasia on 3/20/09


If you hsve a Strong's concordinance,(recommend) and you look up baptism, there was no one baptized in the titles, Jesus told us to baptize in the NAME of the father, son, and Holy Ghost... and what is His name? JESUS. Acts 19:3 & 4 Paul was asking them how they were baptized and they said John's way... Paul told them they had to do it all over again in the name of Jesus. Read the entire book of Acts, then read John 3:5 I hope this helps.
---lisa on 3/20/09


Of all of the baptism services I've seen it's been in the name of, "The Father, Son and Holy Spirit". But, what is even more important is the reason a Christian is baptised - it's an outward testamony of an inward change brought about by accepting Christ as Savoir. Based on the Bible, it's also indorsing the fact that as Christ was raised from the dead, so will Christians be raised from the dead.

Jesus is the Greek translation of the Lord's Hebrew name Yeshua. Why does everyone want to argue over everything written in the scriptures. None of you here even speaks Hebrew, more than likely, and even if you did, what about the other millions of people throughout the world that call Jesus by another name. He's still God regardless. It's not like something magical is supposed to happen to you when you're baptized. It's an act of obedience. It's your death and resurrection with Christ. You're born again! Don't you think God's getting a little bit tired of all of His children arguing over everything?

The correct biblical way to baptize is in the name of Jesus...No one aside from those baptized by John the baptist unto repentance was baptized any other way.
Acts 2.38 is a fulfillment of Matthew 28.19.If Baptism in Jesus name is not the correct way...Answer these questions.

Why is there no scriptural evidence anyone was baptized using father,son,holyghost?

Why didn't Matthew correct Peter on the day of pentecost as he preached Acts 2.38...Matthew didn't, scripture says he stood up with him as he preached....in other word He agreed with Peter.

Why were John's disciples re-baptized in Acts 19?
There is no evidence of infant baptism,Jesus himself was baptized at age 30.

Dunnisha,

Christ said:
Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

That settles it for me.

I know there are other scriptures that speak of baptizing in the name of Jesus Christ. Baptism is a picture of his death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. The emphasis in these other scriptures is belief in Christ as the Saviour.

Bless you,

---joe on 11/10/05


John, there certainly is a blessing in obedience and to be baptized is to be obedient. Jesus would not have commanded it if he did not expect us to submitt to it. But why? is the question. We could say, like my grade school teacher "Ours is not to reason why..." but that is not very satisfactory. Baptism marks a distinct point in one's life that they make a public confession of their faith and identify with Christ in His death burial and resurrection.

Stephen, if we are to only baptize in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ because "Father and Son" are only titles then what is "Lord and Christ"? And what do we do with Matt.28 where it tells us to baptize in the NAME of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost?
---john on 11/8/05


PART ONE:
Baptism does not save. Titus 3:5, Eph 2:8, 9
Baptism not make sure your salvation. Acts 16:31,
Baptism does not make you a better Christian for there are no degrees of being a Christian. I Cor 12:13-27
---Bruce5656 on 11/8/05


PART TWO:
To insist that there is a particular correct way to baptize is to infer that it does one of these things for you or something similar. Then, if one were not baptized the using the correct formula, you would not be saved or what ever it is that you think baptism is going to do for you.
---Bruce5656 on 11/8/05


PART THREE:
I do agree with the comment below that in Jesus Name represents the authority by which one is baptized and is not to be taken as a formula. Colossians 3:17, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

PART FOUR:
So get baptized in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost or in Jesus name and you will be baptized. It would mean just as much if the baptizer said something like: Upon confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ I baptize you. Or nothing at all for that matter so long as it was understood why one was being baptized.
---Bruce5656 on 11/8/05


PART FIVE:
The problem with baptizing in Jesus name is that this usually is accompanied by the Jesus only theology. (No trinity, baptism NECESSARY for salvation etc.) Being baptized in Jesus name then becomes much more than just words. It is a (false) theological statement.

Not sure there is a "correct" way, but the most acceptable is using all three names of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. None of the Gospels tell us how Christ was baptized, but it wasn't in His own name. (John 1:32)
