Step 2: Baptism
Scriptural Baptism takes place after a person believes in Jesus Christ for salvation.
“But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.”
Baptism is the first commitment that God asks of you after you believe in Jesus Christ for salvation.
Matthew 28:18, 19
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Christ was our example!
Christ was baptized and this pleased God.
Matthew 3:16, 17
“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
