What we believe and teach: Ordinances – Water baptism

What we believe and teach: Ordinances –Water baptism

holy-bibleJesus Christ, before He was received up into heaven at the right hand of the Father, commanded the apostles to go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Therefore whoever believes in the Gospel of the grace of God must be baptized immediately – by one immersion – in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Water baptism is an outward act which attests that the believing person has experienced the new birth: his immersion represents the burial of the old man, while his coming up out of the water represents his resurrection with Christ. Therefore we were buried with Christ, through baptism, into His death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Water baptism is an appeal to God for a good conscience.

Therefore since water baptism follows faith it does not remit sins nor does it regenerate man; and in addition to this it must be said that since baptism must follow faith it cannot be administered to infants. (Giacinto Butindaro, from http://www.the-new-way.org/wwbat/index.html)
