Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,” Jesus commanded His disciples, “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). This plain, direct command of Jesus Christ certainly sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Yet surprisingly, today, more than 1,900 years later, the varying opinions about the proper methods, reasons, symbols, age for and words said at baptism are legion. But the incredible need to properly understand this topic is greater in our sinful age than ever before!

As Acts 2:38 directs, ” Repent, and be baptized everyone of you” (Authorized Version).
