Suicide (excerpt): “Suicide leaves family and friends devastated, with many unanswered questions. Often they ask ‘Is suicide sinful?’. . .

Basics of Baptism

Study the Bible to learn about the one baptism (Ephesians 4:5):
1. Jesus’ blood washes us from sin in baptism (Romans 6:3)  We are baptized into Christ’s death. His death was the occasion when He offered His body and blood for the remission of sins (Matthew 26:28). His blood washes us when we are baptized into His death.
2. Happens after belief (Mark 16:16)  God did not reveal “infant baptism.” Belief is before baptism.
3. Means immersion (Romans 6:4, buried)  To be “baptized” by being sprinkled with water is like running by hopping. Running is not hopping, and baptism is not sprinkling. Baptism is a burial.
4. In water (Acts 8:38)
5. For the remission of sins (Acts 2:38; Matthew 26:28)
6. Adds us to the church [the saved] (1 Corinthians 12:13)
7. Is a part of calling on the name of the Lord (Acts 22:16) We cannot call upon the Lord for salvation by faith or words alone—it must include the one baptism.
8. Saves us (1 Peter 3:21)  Have you been taught that baptism does not save us? Read Peter’s words!
