Baptism/Light


This study defines baptism and the relationship between baptism and salvation.

John 3:1-7

We must be reborn to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Acts 2:22-24

Do you believe:

1.  Jesus is the Son of God?

2.  He died on the cross for your sins?

3.  He rose from the dead?

Acts 2:36-39

God made Jesus both Lord (master) and Christ (savior). He cannot be your savior if he is not your master.

The people were “cut to the heart” – they had godly sorrow – and asked Peter what they should do. He told them to:

1. Repent

2. Be baptized

Then they receive:

1. Forgiveness of their sins (salvation)

2. The Holy Spirit

Romans 6:1-4

Baptism is a participation in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.

1 Peter 3:21 (extra passage)

Baptism is not a symbol. The floodwater from Noah’s time symbolizes baptism. Baptism saves.
