Chapter 29 On Baptism

I found this post helpful on Baptism. Baptizing tomorrow morning, so very timely. A few things that stand out are that the baptism was understood to be administered by a minister of the gospel lawfully called. The recipient when being baptized is:

  1. Being baptized is a sign of his belief in Christ and his fellowship with Christ in his death and resurrection.

  2. Baptism signifies being grafted into Christ.

  3. Baptism declares the person being baptized has experienced forgiveness of their sins.

  4. Baptism is a vow on the part of the person being baptized to live and walk in the newness of life through Christ.
