7-31-2013- WHY BE BAPTIZED?


ACTS 2:37-38 =

(27) NOW WHEN THEY HEARD THE GOSPEL, THEY WERE PRICKED IN THEIR HEART AND SAID TO PETER, AND TO THE REST OF THE APOSTLES, MEN AND BRETHREN WHAT SHALL WE DO?

(38) THEN PETER SAID TO THEM, REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERYONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINSAND YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.


"REMARKS"

BAPTISM IS THE EXPRESSION OF A LIFE DEDICATED TO JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND A COMMITTMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY TO THE CHURCH, THAT YOU ARE GOING TO LIVE BY GODS, YAH'WEHS, RULES AND NOT YOUR OWN.

BAPTISM MEANS ALSO, THAT YOU HAVE DIED TO YOUR OLD LIFE AND ARE BEING BROUGHT UP OUT OF THE WATER TO A NEW LIFE.

THE SYMBOLISM OF THE BAPTISM EXPERIENCE IS LIKE UNTO JESUS, YAH'SHUAS, DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESSURECTION.

BAPTISM IS CRITICAL AS A BORN AGAIN SAINT AND BELIEVER, AS IT PUTS AUTHORITY OF CHRIST AS YOUR HEAD AND YOU, AS THE BODY OF CHRIST, THE CHURCH.
