Three Reasons To Get Baptized

Written by admin on Aug 03, 2021 in - No Comments

In this sermon, Adam shares three reasons why you should get baptized as a follower of Jesus.

1. Jesus told us to do it! – Matthew 28:19 (NLT) Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit

2. Jesus, Himself, was baptized! – Matthew 3:13-17 (NLT) Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to talk him out of it. “I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,” he said, “so why are you coming to me?” 15 But Jesus said, “It should be done, for we must carry out all that God requires.” So John agreed to baptize him.16 After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”

3. It’s a way for us to publicly identify with Christ in his death, burial & resurrection.  Romans 6:3-5  (NLT) Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? 4 For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
