Going Public


Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19 NLT


*wash        *plunge    *soak        *dip

Similarly, they don’t eat anything from the market until they immerse their hands in water. This is but one of many traditions they have clung to—such as their ceremonial washing of cups, pitchers, and kettles. Mark 7:4 NLT    

His host was amazed to see that he sat down to eat without first performing the hand-washing ceremony required by Jewish custom. Luke 11:38 NLT

What it took:


A covenant meal

Acknowledge the Old Testament Law

A sacrifice

A ceremonial washing

John Ho Baptistas

*Baptism is a public declaration of a new association.

*Baptism is a personal declaration of a new association.

*Baptism is not a condition of salvation, it's evidence of salvation.

Form / Timing

Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?  Romans 6:3 NLT

For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.  Romans 6:4 NLT
