 46E.   4th: Baptize In The Name Of Christ

 



After hearing the message from a Preacher of God and accepting or joyfully welcoming the message or Gospel, man must repent for all his sins, and only then he can return to God through baptism in the name of Christ in the One Body. In Acts 2:38, Peter said to them:

Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV

46E.1   Why is baptism required so man can return to God?

In Romans 6:3-4, we are told:

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. (RSV)

Baptism in the name of Christ is needed for a man to be forgiven of his sins, so he can walk once more in the newness of life.  

Why is this called "Baptism into death of Christ"?
Symbolically by Baptism into death, man will be buried with Christ (that is man's old sinful self),
so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, man too will be raise anew, so he too might walk in newness of life.

46E.2   How does baptism and returning to God come together for the salvation of man?

New American Standard
Acts 3:19 "Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;

Baptism is part of God's way for man to return to God.
Thus, Baptism in the name of Christ, is God's way for a sinful man to walk once more in the newness of life, so that  times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
Thus, a sinful man, who is considered an enemy of God, may once again become right in the sight of God, and may be called a child of God.
