The Biblical Basis for Baptism

From Series: Seven Marks of an Effective Church

Acts 2:36-47  (ID: 1663)

What does it mean to be baptized? Who should be baptized? Who should not be baptized? Alistair Begg answers these questions and instructs all who profess faith in Christ to be baptized. It is in baptism that new believers symbolically convey their union with Christ. It is not just a casual affair or a formality, but an expression that the believer’s life is changed and forever belongs Christ.

Topics:

36Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
