Baptism: A Funeral, a Birth, an Adoption & a Wedding

What is baptism?

We can find in the dictionary that the word means to dip, immerse, submerge, plunge, or overwhelm. We can read examples of people being baptized in the Bible, especially in the book of Acts.

But what is a man or woman doing by faith when they are baptized “in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of” their “sins” (Acts 2:38)? What is God doing? What do I need to understand about baptism, and why does it matter?

This sermon explores how baptism is:

  • A funeral
  • A birth
  • An adoption
  • A wedding

It was delivered on March 12, 2017.
