What
Happens at
the Point
of
Baptism?

1/26/2020 15
We are placed “in Christ”
(1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:27)
We’re associated with the death of Christ
(Colossians 2:12)
We are raised to a new life
(2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 2:12)
“Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let
every one of you be baptized in the name of
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you
shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
1/26/2020 (Acts 2:38) 16
THE WAY OF SALVATION
We will not be baptized if we do not
believed it necessary, as commanded by
Jesus Christ.

However, in your daily life as a Christian, it


helps to remember what takes place when
we are baptized. When we are baptized,
here is what happened to us:
1/26/2020 17
We are saved.
(Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 3:21)
Our sins are forgiven. (Acts 2:38)
We were baptized into Jesus Christ.
(Galatians 3:26,27; 1 Corinthians 12:13)
We were baptized into Jesus death.
(Romans 6:3-4)
Our sins are washed away.
1/26/2020
(Acts 22:16) 18
It is important to note that baptism ALONE
does not save us.
To say that baptism alone saved us would be
like saying that faith alone saved us or that
repentance alone saved us. Neither would be
a scriptural claim.

Our obedience to Jesus’ command to be


baptized works with our belief, our repentant
change and the confession of our faith to save
1/26/2020
us. 19

THE WAY OF SALVATION
A brief summary of the way of salvation.
The purpose of our belief: To direct us to obey God,
Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
The purpose of our repentance: To turn us to Jesus
Christ and His teachings, turning away from our
sinful activities of the past and staying away from
them in the future.
The purpose of our confession: To show that we
were not (and are not) ashamed of Jesus Christ and
our belief in Him.

THE WAY OF SALVATION
A brief summary of the way of salvation.
The purpose of our baptism: Baptism is the
final act of our obedience so that we might be
saved.
It was that which put us into the body of Christ,
the church.
It results in the forgiveness of our sins.
It was that from which we rise to walk in a
newness of life, serving only the Lord.
1/26/2020 25
We need to strive to make certain that we are
following up on the purpose of our salvation.
Remember, we are to walk in a newness of life,
serving only the Lord.
We are to turn away from sin on a daily basis,
striving with God's help to say no to any and
all forms of temptations.
We need to continue to build our faith in Jesus
Christ and continue to proclaim that faith so
that others might believe.
