LESSON 04

What the Bible Says about Baptism

When Jesus was baptized (Matthew 3:13-17), He made a statement that deserves our attention. "It becometh us to fulfill all righteous- ness." What He is saying is that baptism is a necessary step in God's plan for the life of the believer and not the life of the unbeliever. Have you been baptized? My friend, baptism before salvation doesn't count. Baptism always follows salvation. Have you been baptized since you were saved? If not, you need to be. Let your pastor know you want to be baptized. Tell him today. This is part of God's plan for your life as a believer.

CONCLUSION:
Baptism is a command of God, not to save us, but for us to picture salvation. It is an outward testimony to others that
we are saved. Remember, baptism doesn't save. A wedding band doesn't make you married; it just tells people that
you are. It is the same with baptism, it is an outward sign of an inward reality. Each person who is "born again" should
receive believer's baptism at the earliest possible time. Read John 14:15.(Write the verse out here).
