One dry Baptism for the Church, the Body of Christ.

Gina: You need to learn the correct way to be baptized. Here it is and please receive it.
We are not to go round and round on subjects like this. We have to grow up and become mature Christians at some point in our walk with Christ. Once you learn this,refuse to discuss it any further:
We must go down under the water. Whole body(immersion). We must be baptized in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Ghost(Spirit) according to Matthew 28. Its settled now please believe(receive). Have faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Now you have matured a little more as a Christian,today. This blog site can and does work. This is how it should be. Give God the glory!

"baptism" means "dipt honor", and the Christian baptism is done in the water, either in the riverside or at the side of a seashore or in a baptismal or in a pool, and I even heard of a person being baptized in a bath tub. And the baptizer puts their hand in back of the person being baptized in order to lift them back up again after they have been immersered under the water. God Almighty is Triune, being the Father Yahwah and the Son Yeshuah and the Holy Spirit 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."

Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v 37 - 38 Fulfills Matt.28 v 19 - 20. Being baptized In Jesus name. The person being baptized & Pastor - minister doing the baptism saying, I now baptize you in the name Jesus Christ. You now have the name Jesus Christ applied to your life & soul.

There's No one found in scriptures that was baptized in the titles Father - Son & Holy spirit. When Man - made trin - ministers do, do such, they down a dry sinner & come up a wet sinner. Nothing happened, you just got wet.

Anyone who is truly saved can baptised. We have too many people doing this that's never been saved. A real travesty. Anyways, I believe in total submersion. Speak the words that God gives you. I do not memorize.
---catherine on 2/8/08

Go to the Grrek and Hebrew for Baptize and you will see it means to be completely immersed. Jesus as out EXAMPLE in the BIBLE CAME UP OUT OF THE WATER. Anything less than complete immersion is not scriptural baptism
---JIM on 2/6/08

At any age by sprinkling, poring or immersion in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
---notlaw99 on 2/6/08

by emersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Jesus told the deciple how to baptist his people Mathew 28-19 he told them to babtise
In the name not names and when are baptize that when our sins are forgiven and the blood is applied.
---Betty on 8/27/06

Baptism is rebirth - death in christ:
Titus 3:5 (washing & rebirth)
Romans 6:3-5 (All baptism into death)
Acts 22:16 ( What are you waiting for get up and be B)
Matthew 28:18-20(go ye therefore and B)

I think this will help you Gina
---ZIMBABWEAN on 4/27/06

Baptism needs water and to deep in water:
John 3:3-5 ( Unless you are baptised you...)
Mark 16:16 ( Whosoever believes..)
Matthew 3:15-6 (Jesus came out of water)
John 3:23 (There was plenty of water)
Acts 8:38 (the Ethiopian)
---Zimbabwean on 4/27/06

To me just as the good book says to be fully emersed, and by the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
---Rebecca_D on 4/27/06

Ralph, you better be careful. I got whipped to death by words of intelligence that was far above my head for "a figure of speech" I made on "evil brought into your home" blog.
---shira on 4/26/06

Ralph: I am so glad to see you were jesting in your question. I had a pastor who baptized his mother-in-law in the backyard pool, as she was phobic about water and more phobic of crowds. It was a family time they had.

While I am not legalistic to think that one is not baptized if sprinkled, I do believe they should be old enough to understand what they are doing. I prefer dunking myself.
---Madison on 4/25/06

The jews killed Jesus because his way and doctrine did not fit theirs. Christians don't compromise the way of God even if the result is death. thats why all those early christians were martered they gave their lives to prove their loyalty to Jesus,many christians can't even live for jesus so I doubt they would die for him.
---Exzucuh on 4/25/06

Good for you Daphn8897, you perceive correctly. I was responding to Candice specifically who said that emmersion is the correct way because that's what Jesus did. Well, Jesus did it in a river didn't He?
Immersion is beautiful because of it's symbolic image. "Symbolic" being the key word. To be baptized is to be obedient. I just don't remember getting the memo with a rundown of all the rules that people have adopted. Mima, I'm sure my silly little post has not upset any churches.

Mima, Why not "upset" the churches with his question. I perceive Ralph was nudging those who would be legalistic about something that's really a heart issue and not a format issue. Also, there are many reasons why all christians cannot be baptized by immersion - in some Muslem countries, they would be murdered as they walked out of the river. I certainly don't think one's salvation is contingent upon how or if baptized - any more that if one is circumcized or not....
---daphn8897 on 4/25/06

Ralph: Your question is ridiculous. When Jesus gave the Great Commission in Matthew, he said go into all the world... Do you really believe he intended people to make a pilgramage to the Jordan to be baptized? Baptism ideally occurs shortly after salvation, not always though. Suggesting that all be baptized in the Jordan is just prepostorous.
---Madison on 4/25/06

I agree with Rev_Herb on this one. It is an outward expression for the Christian to show their belief in Christ. Although, I think that it should be done by immersion rather than sprinkling.
---chris on 4/25/06

Ralph7477: Please donot upset our churches of today with a question like the one you posted in answer to this questio!!

Baptism is a symbolic excercise that commemorates the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (c.f. Rom 6:4, Eph 4:5, Col 2:12, 1 Pet 3:21). By extension, it also typifies death to self and the newness of life in the born again experience. Sprinkling destroys the spiritual symbolism of baptism. Just imagine Jesus lying on the ground with a little dirt thrown on Him, or our sins covered by a light mist rather than being completely washed away.
---jerry6593 on 4/25/06

Immersion. "Baptism" is a transliteration of "baptiso", greek for "dip, plunge, immerse." Act 2:38 "repent and be baptized for the remission of your sins." Mark 16:16 "he who belives and is baptised will be saved"
---Allen on 4/24/06

Baptism is for believers only. It is an outward showing of what has taken place on the inside. It represents the death,bural, and resurection of Christ. Sprinkeling can do that. Baptism has no saving power in it's self. It does not wash away sins, only the blood can do that.
---Rev_Herb on 4/24/06

When we are baptised in the name not names singular of the Fatherand of the Son and ofthe Holy Spirit we recieve the Name as our own it is our family name we are married we are adopted as Sons and daughters it is Jesus name above all names in heaven and earth.

Malachi 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts. The father is declaring JESUS as his name of the family of God in heaven and earth. I have more if you like.

Isaiah 43:7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.(The Father here is refering to Jesus and those he has called)he was created for Gods glory.

Isaiah said that Jesus was the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,Isaiah 30:27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
---exzucu6636 on 4/24/06

If Jesus showed us the correct way to be baptized, why can't it be said that He also showed us the correct place to be baptized. Specifically a river, not a baptismal and more specifically not any old river but the Jordan should be the proper venue to be baptized.

Full immersion like Jesus did is the correct way to be baptized. You should be baptized at the age where you know fully the desicsion you are making so young children are not recomended, however parents can take a dedication to God to take responsiblity over their children until the children can answer for themselves. Sprinkling is not a choice because Jesus showed us the correct way.
---candice on 4/24/06

Has anyone here been baptised by sprinking or has anyone ever been refused baptism by sprinking and been told that total immersion is the only acceptable way?
---emg on 4/24/06

There is one place were we are told to do it in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The other place, in the name of Jesus.
Furthermore, it says the recipient must believe and or repent. There are no other instructions pertaining who should do the baptizing or if it is by washing, pouring, sprinkling or immersion. The examples we see are by immersion so I'll stick with that.
