May 7, 2013
In this video, Dr. Charles Blackstock addresses the question of whether the method of baptism is important. He explains that according to Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He also references the book of Acts, where Peter reaffirms this command. He explains that the word baptism comes from the Greek word meaning to dip and that when we see someone baptized, it tells two stories: the story of Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection and the story of the believer's new life in Christ. He emphasizes that baptism is important because it is a direct command of Christ, and it is only given to believers who have put their faith in Jesus Christ. He also notes that the method of baptism, whether by immersion or pouring, is not as important as the fact that it is a command of God and a beautiful picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life of the believer.
