"BAPTISM" Conclusion To This Section When all men's arguments fall, the Bible's teaching on this subject is still the same. Ac 2:38 still teaches baptism is for the remission of sins: 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Ac 22:16 still teaches baptism washes away sins: 16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Mk 16:16 still teaches: 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 1 Co 12:13 still teaches that baptism puts us into the body of Christ: 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. Ga 3:27 still teaches baptism puts us into Christ: 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Ro 6:3-4 still teaches baptism puts us into the death of Christ: 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Co 2:12-13 still teaches that through baptism we obtain the newness of life: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 1 Pe 3:21 still teaches that baptism saves us: 21 The like figure whereunto [even] baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: The first time the gospel was preached, "They then that received his word were baptized," (Ac 2:41 ). People today who receive the gospel do the same thing. Friend, if you will believe in Jesus Christ, and have repented, i.e., determined that you will live according to His teaching, won't you confess His name before men and be baptized for the reasons HE said while you have opportunity?
