Believers Baptism

It’s amazing how differently “Baptism” is viewed by the many Christian religions of our world. In our KJ Bible, the word "baptism" is translated from the original Greek word "baptizo" which means, "to dip, immerse, or submerge." Nowhere else in scripture is another word used for baptism. The words which mean to "pour" or "sprinkle" are never found in association with term baptism anywhere in the original texts either! So, the term “baptism” symbolically must illustrate a complete submersion under water. In (Rom. 6:3-6) we are taught that "baptism" is a symbol of our Lord's death, burial, and resurrection. In other words, it’s a picture of being buried together with Christ in his death, and then being raised again a new in the likeness of his resurrection. This symbolic picture is at the very heart of the gospel message even though baptism itself has no part in the salvation process. According to the scriptures, baptism symbolically demonstrates a message of an expected change in the new believer's life (after) salvation. So just as Christ was buried, we too are submerged under the water (picturing a total death to our old way of life), and just as Christ was raised again a new, we symbolically are to come out differently also (ready to live for Christ)!

Called By The Gospel Of God

(Rom. 1:16)  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just the biblical account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, but it’s also the power behind our salvation, our walk, and service for the Lord. 1) God’s gospel calls all men to salvation. All men, meaning even those who do not believe Him.God so loved man that He sent His prophets to preach salvation to man long before He came himself in Christ to show man the way. And so, from the very beginning of time God has been calling men to repent of sin and trust in Him and His Word. 2) God’s gospel call is to  “whosoever will.” It’s not just limited to the Jew, but it’s also available to anyone who desires forgiveness and peace with God. Unfortunately, although all men are called only a few answer back and find salvation. 3) God’s gospel calls every Christian to share it.It’s now our…

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…
