    into the water both Philip and the eunuch and he baptized him And when they were come up out of the water the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip that the eunuch saw him no more and he went on his way rejoicing What About Sprinkling We simply do not find it in the Scripture Sprinkling pouring or infant baptism cannot be found or substantiated in the Word of God These are only human traditions Therefore we should reject them in the light of the scriptural truth What Formula was Used The birth of the church in the second chapter of Acts made John s baptism obsolete It was updated when a name was added to it ACTS 2 38 Then Peter said unto them Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost The greatest legacy the Lord left to his bride the church was His name ACTS 4 12 Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved No Other Baptismal Mode Was Practiced in Scripture ACTS 8 16 For as yet he was fallen upon none of them only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus ACTS 10 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Then prayed they him to tarry certain days ACTS 19 5 When they heard this they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus ROMANS 6 3 Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death Jesus name must be invoked verbally to have a proper baptism Notice the Three Questions Paul Asked the Church at Corinth They are relevant to our study today I CORINTHIANS 1 13 Is Christ divided was Paul crucified for you or were ye baptized in the name of Paul Jesus was crucified for us so we should be baptized in Jesus name Look at Paul s own baptism ACTS 22 16 And now why tarriest thou arise and be baptized and wash away thy sins calling on the name of the Lord Water Baptism is a Command to be Obeyed for Salvation ACTS 10 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Then prayed they him to tarry certain days MARK 16 15 16 And he said unto them Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned GALATIANS 3 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ ACTS 2 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls EPHESIANS 4 5 One Lord one faith one baptism What About Matthew 28 19 MATTHEW 28 19 Go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost Matthew 28 19 was obeyed in Acts 2 38 Father Son and Holy Ghost are titles not names Many simply repeat the Lord s command found in Matthew 28 19 instead of obeying it Baptism using a threefold formula was not practiced by or taught by the disciples of Jesus Christ What is the Name of the Father JOHN 5 43 I am come in my Father s name and ye receive me not if another shall come in his own name him ye will receive What is the Name of the Son JOHN 20 31 But these are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God and that believing ye might have life through his name What is the Name of the Holy Ghost JOHN 14 26 But the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in my name he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have said unto you The Holy Ghost is not a name It is a title for the SPIRIT OF GOD IN THE CHURCH TODAY This Brings us to One of the Most Beautiful Revelations of the Bible The Message of who Jesus Really Is The name of Father Son and Holy Ghost is Jesus The disciples never had a single conflict over baptism in the New Testiment WHY Because they understood the singleness or oneness of God Observe JOHN 14 10 11 Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father in me the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that dwelleth in me he doeth the works Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me or else believe me for the very works sake JOHN 10 30 I and my Father are one JOHN 14 8 11 Philip saith unto him Lord show us the Father and it sufficeth us Jesus saith unto him Have I been so long time with you and yet hast thou not known me Philip he that hath seen me hath seen the Father and how sayest thou then Show us the Father Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father in me the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that dwelleth in me he doeth the works Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me or else believe me for the very works sake JOHN 14 15 20 If ye love me keep my commandments And I will pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter that he may abide with you for ever

    these sings shall follow them that believe In my name shall they cast out devils they shall speak with new tongues Acts 2 1 4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all with one accord in one place And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled the house where they were sitting And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each of them And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance Acts 2 38 39 Then Peter said unto them Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off even as many as the Lord our God shall call Acts 10 44 47 While Peter yet spake these words The Holy Ghost fell on them which heard the word And them of the circumcision which believed were astonished as many as came with peter Because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God Then answered Peter can any man forbid water that these should not be baptized which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we Acts 11 15 17 And as I began to speak the Holy Ghost fell on them as on us at the beginning Then remembered I the word of the Lord how that he said John indeed baptized with water but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ what was I that I could withstand God Acts 19 2 6 He said unto them have ye received the Holy ghost since ye believed And they said unto him we have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost And when Paul had laid his hands upon them the Holy Ghost came on them and they spake with tongues and prophesied 1 Corinthians 14 18 39 I thank God I speak with tongues more than ye all Wherefore brethren covet to prophesy and forbid not to speak with tongues Romans 8 9 11 But ye are not in the flesh but in the spirit if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of His Do you need the Holy Ghost Only if you want to be saved I know there are some that will tell you all you have to do is believe but they are so wrong You have to take the whole Bible at
