Christian Baptism - into Christ, in the Holy Spirit, in Water, with Fire

"Baptism" derives from the Greek word "Baptizo", which means "to cause to be dipped or immersed".

Baptism in Water – by Ps John Iuliano

WE BELIEVE that baptism, by single immersion, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, is enjoined upon all who have repented and have believed in Christ as Saviour and Lord, and that it is symbolic of our identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection – Matt. 28:19,20; Acts. 10:47,28; 2:38,39; Rom. 6:4,5; Col. 2:12; Mark 16:16.


An ordinance is an outward sign of an inward work. The word ordinance literally means “something commanded and enforced by the proper authority”.

Baptism in Water

Water baptism is commanded by Christ. This article seeks to show from a biblical perspective What It Is, Who it is For, and seeks to bring a balanced perspective in the light of the confusion that has existed on this issue throughout the history of the church.
