Water Baptism

St. Luke 4:18-19

The Name in which baptism is administered, is as important as IMMERSION.


Jesus’ last command to His disciples was, “Go ye, therefore, and teach ALL NATIONS, baptizing THEM (all nations) in the NAME OF THE FATHER, and of the SON and of the HOLY GHOST” (Matt. 28:19).  You will notice He said “NAME,” not “NAMES,” but TITLES of positions held by GOD.  We see quickly that this is true as we hear the angel announce,  “She shall bring forth a SON, and thou shalt call His NAME JESUS” (Matt. 1:21).

This NAME, the Apostles understood to be LORD JESUS CHRIST, and from the first day that the Church of God was established on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:36-41), until the end of their ministry, they baptized ALL NATIONS (Jews, Acts 2:38-41); Samaritans, Acts 8:16; Gentiles, Acts 19:5) in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

“Thou shalt call HIS NAME JESUS:  for He shall save His people from their sins.”  (Matt. 1:21).

Are you looking for SALVATION?  “Neither is there SALVATION in any other for there is NONE OTHER NAME under Heaven given among men, WHEREBY we MUST BE SAVED.”  (Acts 4:14).
