The Importance of Baptism


The Importance of Baptism

If you are interested in the history of Christianity, you might be wondering what the earliest Christians believed about baptism. Thankfully, the Bible gives us some clear information on the importance of baptism. Peter told the masses on the Day of Pentecost that they must repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. It’s also important to remember that Paul was baptized by Ananias, who urged him to take the step. He was baptized in the name of Christ, too.

There are three kinds of Christians, according to John Piper, when it comes to world missions. Piper goes through each of the four Great Commission commands and asks readers to prioritize which ones they believe are the most important. In other words, there is a “normative” Christian group and a “normative” group. The latter group, he says, “is the one who is seeking the kingdom of God, but doesn’t want the world to be a better place.”

In the Bible, Jesus sent the apostles out two by two. He gave them authority to expel unclean spirits. He also told them not to bring any money, food, or sandals with them on their journey. When they left a country or region, many people recognized them. Jesus was moved by the large crowd and began teaching his followers. The apostles, however, had to beware of these spies. Eventually, the disciples were swept up in a religious war.
