Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kIngdom (Matt 16:17-19), to loose and bind on earth and it would be so in Heaven. Peter wasn't Jesus but Scriputre says after he as ascended, he gave gifts unto men. (Eph 4:8). The gift that secures you in his Bride is that gift he freely gave(John 14), the gift of the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost. The angels told the disciples to go and wait in Jerusalem until they would be given that Holy Ghost(Acts 1:8). After that rushing mighty wind filled them all, they stumbled out drunk with that New wine.

Good question Mima. In revelation the Bible says to honor the Lamb and the Father equally. If they are not two then how can these be.

JESUS CHRIST was physically resurrected from the grave. In Revelation he is pictured as still having a body. How do you explain this.

The name singular of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is like them one. But they are three persons.

I pray like JESUS taught. My Father which art in Heaven. We baptize like JESUS taught.
---Samuel on 6/2/11

Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Joh 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Joh 5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

Joh 6:36,Joh 14:29
1Jn 5:13

---loving_Jesus realizing you do not believe in the Trinity let me ask you a little question. At the baptism of Jesus there was,1. the physical Jesus standing in the water,2. the Holy Spirit in the form of the Dove that descended, and 3. the voice of Almighty God from heaven. Do you see three distinct personalities here?
---mima on 6/2/11

In Jesus name is the correct way. The bible says baptize in THE NAME of the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. The name is singular, which means one name. Who is the father, son, and holy spirit? It's Jesus!! Do not be deceived. Please get baptized the right way!
---loving_Jesus on 6/2/11

In the name of JESUS IS Correct.
---Doven_Nelson on 4/6/11

God Almighty is Triune: being the Father Yahagahan Elohim and the Son Yeshuah Meshiach and the Holy Spirit Ruwach Shiloh. Thus the Christian baptizer properly says to the person which they are baptizing, before they lower them underneath the water, "I baptize you onto the Name Jesus Christ, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

Sorry, it was late.

what i meant was that a spiritual baptism that was prophesied by Joel (witnessing NT revelation to OT prophesy) was coming. any other baptism in form or function was a type/shadow of things to come.

Why make Spirit baptism into water baptism?
---michael_e on 5/28/10

Act 2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel, And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh [Spirit baptism]... And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit [Spirit baptism]...And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

---michael_e on 11/11/10

I had a meeting with a Pastor yesterday on this subject.I do not believe that you have to be emmersed in water for remission of sins.I believe once you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior in your heart and you have repented of your sins you are saved.I do believe that we must be baptized because Jesus commanded us to do so.In Mark 16:16 the Pastor continuously told me to ignore the last part of that scripture,which states "He that believeth not will be condemned" It did not say and if you are not baptized..condemned. He said that is was inferred.I was baptized 2 times,once in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,and then in the name of Jesus Christ. The second time was to renew my vow to live my life truly yielded unto God.

Why make Spirit baptism into water baptism?
---michael_e on 5/28/10

Amen, michael_e.

Mima,what do you mean by "The thief on the cross promised paradise by the Lord Jesus Christ did not get saved."?

The fact that the thief was promised paradise proves that there is salvation in immersion in Jesus not by water.

i think that the use of Jesus and the Son is splitting hairs. But, the intersting thing is that Jesus instructed his disciple to baptise in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The Jews are monotheists, so they must have thought the disciples were crazy, apostate, or cult members.
---aka.joseph on 5/28/10

If baptism is an absolute essential part of being forgiven and receiving salvation, then Christ Jesus did not save anyone because the did not baptize anyone. The thief on the cross promised paradise by the Lord Jesus Christ did not get saved. To be baptizes is a commandment and all Christians should be baptized. But it cannot be held to be an absolute essential part of salvation .
---mima on 5/28/10

Is water baptism for today? Not if we follow Paul as he followed Christ
1 Cor 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. HERE is a list of cults that do not follow Paul today because they require Israel's water baptism for salvation. JW , Catholics, Mormons, Church of Christ, and others.... who are you going to believe? Men or God?

Either way is Not okay.
Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20. When your baptized in The name Jesus Christ, that Name Is applied to your soul.
When your baptized in the titles Father-Son & Holy spirit, you go down a dry sinner & then come up a wet sinner(you just got wet). You read from Matt.28 v's 19-20 to the end of Jude & find me any 1 that was baptized in the titles, you wont, because there is None. Any & All were baptized in the name of the Lord & the name of The Lord Is Jesus Christ.
If a minister baptizes both ways, that minister is just like what scripture says, a double minded man is unstable in his ways.
---Lawrence on 5/27/10

Paul says, Eph. 4:5 There is "one baptism". Despite this truth many insist on a multiplicity of baptisms. This labels the operation of God (Col. 2:12) as being insufficient. We are baptized by the HS into the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13) mans ritual(borrowed from God's Hebrew program) can add anything to that.

Some say 3 baptisms, some 2 and some 1 Some sprinkle, pour, or immerse .

Some believe water baptism saves, others say it's a testimony. Paul's commission did not include the Hebrew water rite of baptism (1 Cor. 1:17). It's good to know we are "complete" in Christ and, man can add nothing to our position in Christ nor take away any of our spiritual blessings "in heavenly places in Christ."
---michael_e on 5/26/10

there is only 1 way to save.1 must believe 2 turn from your sins 3 be baptized in Jesus name,there is only name under heaven given amoung men where by we must be save and that name is Jesus. that is why you never read in the bible about anyone being baptized in the father,son,holy ghost.he said do it the name of.who is the father son,holy ghost? Jesus is,just read the first chapter of the book of john.and you will see that in the beginning was the word and the word was with God, & the word was God. & vr 14 said that the word was made flesh and dwelt amoung us full of grace & truth.the bible is not hard to understand. u study to show yourself approved a workman need not to be ashamed but rightly dividing the word of truth
---shenise on 5/11/10

Either way is ok. Get baptized. That's the main thing. In obedience to God. I was baptized, full immersion, in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Ghost. Matthew 28:20.

The NAME of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is One Name. It's NOT NAMES, but THE NAME! You should not baptize if you do not know that name! That Name is JESUS! That is why they baptize in THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST !
---Johann_Deetlefs on 8/20/07

Baptism is supposed to be in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. When they baptised in Christ's name they would have used the above tri-part formula, for Christ is a part of that. To be born again is a reference to Baptism and unless you are baptised you will NOT enter the Kingdom of Heaven, although it is true that Baptism is not what ultimately saves you. John 3:5, and lest this be not clear - read the rest of the chapter.
---lorra8574 on 3/8/07

Baptism connects us to Christ's death and resurrection, see Romans 6:4. Baptism is so important that it has become an anthem, see Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. John preached the Baptism of Repentence and when the Pharisees and Sadduccees came to the river he cried out "...who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?" Matthew 3:7. Jesus picked up what John had started and gave it something more - in Him we are born of the spirit.
---lorra8574 on 3/8/07

Having studied the bible for many decades, I have found hundreds of scriptures stating that baptism is by immersion only, even Jesus Christ was immersed in water to set the ultimate example, but I have never found one scripture that says water can be poured, sprinkled, or thrown at someone to baptise them. read the bible and stop inventing your own doctrines which are false teachings of men and not God.

---Emcee on 3/8/07

I do disagree w/ the belief that baptism is needed for forgiveness of sins because it isn't scriptural.

However I have found that our forgiveness of sins is only through faith & the blood of Jesus.(Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 9:22)

Faith for forgiveness should not be placed on what we "must do" ie water baptism, but in what Jesus already did.

Paul talked about this in 1Corinthians 1:17

I would prefer in the name of the Trinity.Father,Son and Holy Spirit. But when it is all said and done just get baptized in obedience to the Lord. That should sertle it all.
---robyn on 3/7/07

Both ways are recorded in the Scriptures. Some say that the trinity formula are titles of positions, or offices, rather then formal names. And so they say that the formal Name of Jesus would be more accurate. i was baptised 3 times: Sprinkled as a child with the pronounced trinity; immersed as an adult in the pronounced trinity; and immersed as an adult in the Name of Jesus. My conscience is satisfied.
---Eloy on 3/7/07

Paul I believe ( I may be wrong) wrote therefore baptism doth save us as it is the answer of a clean conscience. If a person is able they should as a public profession and for conscience sake. Faith and obediance are highly esteemed in the eyes of the Lord though.

Untill jesus died no one could Baptise in Jesus name. in the NT no one was baptize any other way but in Jesus name Mathew 28-19 Jesus told the deciple. Go baptize in the name not names And the only way the blood of Jesus covers us is when we are babtise in jesus name an that is when our sins are forgiven and the blood is applied If we get the Holy Ghost And not get Baptize in his name we are only half born and our sins are not removed untill we obeyWhat Jesus told the deciples to teach the people

The jailor was saved and then baptized. I never seen an example in the Bible of someone who had baptism save them. They were all saved and then baptized. The same as you all.

There's nothing wrong with baptizing babies, even so when the baptized infant grows up and understands better whom Jesus is, then they again may desire baptism to settle their own conscience. Personally i myself was baptized 3 times: Sprinkled as a baby; immersed as an adult in the Trinity; and immersed again as an adult in the formal Name of Jesus.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

God's instruction is for ALL to be baptized to be a part of God's family, he did not say, only adults or only those who understand. He said All, that's all inclusive. We are not to lean upon our own understanding or analysis, for as the heavens are higher then the earth so are his ways higher than our ways. God gave the promise of blessing to Abraham AND to all of his children, it's not just for Abraham or the adults who understand.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

There's nothing to the contrary excluding infants in scripture, but actually reads that all the households were baptized, including infants. The great commission instructs us that ALL should be baptized, again God's grace is for all the family. Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:21. i know certain religions deny baptism and communion to people, but Jesus spoke sharply against that. Please read Matthew 23:13; Luke 18:15-17.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

In the Bible whole families and children were baptized on the same day. Baptism originally is a family affair which is all-inclusive, after the family heard the gospel message, customarily the whole family got baptized. Please read Acts 2:38-41; 16:15,32,33; Luke 18:15-17.

Jesus commanded all to be baptized, and none to be excluded. The only thing man offers or can impart in baptism is his whole undone self obeying the command, God is the one who does all the supernatural converting and sanctifying, not the undone clay of man nor clay of infant nor clay of woman. Please read Ezekiel 36:23-28; I Corinthians 7:14.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

If you refuse baptism, or any other command of Christ, then you are unsaved. Baptism is 100% God's sanctification, and is none of man's doing. If you refuse baptism, you're refusing Christ, and if you refuse Christ, then you're refusing God's salvation for you.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

Baptism IS required for salvation. Jesus said, "He that believes AND IS BAPTIZED WILL BE SAVED; but he that believes not will be damned." Mark 16:16. The thief on the cross could very well have been baptized before he was nailed on the cross. Peter said, "Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord." Acts 10:47,48.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

To obey Christ is to follow him, apart from which there is no salvation. This is one of the reasons why very few people are actually saved: because they do not obey all of his commands, but instead they follow only part of his command which they pick and choose to their liking, and they disregard or discard the required rest. Man will live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Every word of Christ is pure, and nothing to be refused, and one of his words is to be baptized.

Baptism is included in salvation, not excluded. When Christ commands you to be baptized, then we should obey him. He is the Lord. When he commands you to repent, or confess your sins, or to sacrifice yourself, or to share your faith, or to do the works of Christ, then we should obey him, for all obedience is included in salvation. We must obey all of his commands, and not pick nor choose which command we merely desire to do.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

I know the commandment of Christ to be baptized. Christ is baptized, and he commands baptism. I accept the whole word of truth, and not just a part. By taking verses out of context, and also misapplying scripture you will always be led astray. If you want to know about baptism, then you must look up scriptures on baptism, and not verses on belief, grace, forgiveness, being saved from sin, etc. Though these other topics may happen to speak about baptism, that is not the main subject matter.
---Eloy on 5/19/06

One Lord Jesus. One faith Jesus .One Baptizem Jesus .Our sin's are not removed until we are baptise in Jesus name and only then is his blood apply to us what does the word remitted mean it mean to take away.
---Betty on 5/18/06

Don't confuse the method with the message. The message is all ways be the same - you are giving an outward testimony of an inward decision of accepting Christ as Saviour. The method may vary according the church denomination and/or culture. (For example, I had a missionary friend in Iran who baptised in the golf course water hazard at night because it was safer.) My church baptises by immersion, one time backwards in the church. Others use only a stream, or river. But, the message stays the same.

Funny how some people say that what Jesus commanded His disciples to do is not a requirement for salvation.

Immersion (derived from the Jewish Mikveh) was always the NORM of Christian baptism. However, common sense tells you that sometimes immersion is not possible. We are not under the law but grace. In practice, we could get as close to immersion as we can (which might vary in these exceptional cases)--but we don't take the exception and make it the norm, either.
---Jack on 5/30/05

Baptism is a symbol of salvation not required for salvation. It should only occur once time in a lifetime. The volume of water is irrelevant: emersion, poring, and sprinklings are all valid forms. Infant Baptism was normative by the second century. When a head of household was converted and baptized all in the household were baptized including infants children and slaves. No legitimate Christian denomination should ever ask you to be re-baptized, if they do, don't join it, go elsewhere.

---Phia4633 on 5/23/05

I have never believed baptism is necessary for salvation and yet it was a commandment so isn't to be ignored.I hope and pray it isn't part of being saved for I have loved ones who died without it,although they were commited to serving Jesus.I do believe in deathbed conversions and they aren't baptised,neither was the thief on the cross.

I am glad to learn that you were considered a Christian with out the baptism.

If not for doctrinal reasons as the UPC teach (no trinity etc.) then what is the issue about a formula? Why would it divide? Baptism either way is just as valid - if it is not done as a requsite to salvation.

I have baptized people "In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost in Jesus name." To me the "in Jesus name" part is just a statement as to the authority by which we bpatize. Just like we pray for/about something "in Jesus name".

To those who say there is only the baptism in Matthew28:19 The Father,Son, and Holy Ghost-reference Luke 24:46-47 tells Christ suffered and rose from dead,-that repentence and remission of sins should be preached in "His name", thats Jesus.Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,Repent ,and be baptised 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.It is mans doctrine that formed a schism between Gods Children, using the baptism in Matthew opposing the one in Acts , to cause confussion, not Christ.

Baptism ;In THE NAME of the Father ,Son,and Holy Ghost ,what is THE NAME? All the fullness of the Godhead bodily dwells in Jesus Christ Col.2:9.The Name is Jesus. Baptism IN JESUS Name and The Name Of ,seem to say the same thing. It appears the different way of saying it lies in the fact of Christs death and resurrection, that He alone is our way of salvation and we as Christians only reach the Father through the Son,all in Jesus Name.Making the baptism not a change in name but a change in emphasis ,putting it more clearly on Jesus, who God gave all power on heaven and earth.

The problem with baptism in "Jesus' name" is not the formula rather the theology behind the formula. Most frequently, those who teach this believe that you MUST be baptized (according to their specific formula), and speak in tongues to be saved. This is a false gospel. Read Galations.

Since Baptism does not save we do not have to be so concerned about the legalism of the act.

I am a missionary baptist & my little one got saved in Aug. and is going to be baptised in a week and we baptise in the name of the Father,Son & Holy Ghost.Submurged in the water as a burial of Christ and rise in His resurrection.The most important part of it is being saved accept Jesus in your heart.No matter how much your are sprinkled(not scriptial) or immersed in baptisim isnt going to save you from your sins.Robin

It is written, 'There is one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.' Take that as you will when you debate which baptism is correct.

What does the Bible say about baptism? The correct way is in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Mt 28, 16-20). But it is to know taht we aren't baptised for the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit but by the baptism we join Jesus as our Lord. So we are baptised in His name. But we have to know that Jesus is the Full Revelation of the Trinity. Don't worry about the formula. The problem is to get in the deepness of the formula.
