    Why is water baptism important ?

    I am reading Matt chapter 3 where John is baptizing those with water and later the Lord Jesus Christ get's baptized by John.

    Why is water baptism important ? It is just a ritual ? What does it mean? Is it still valid today ? Is it in the old testament ?

    thanks..

    Does that mean if I came out of a race-mixing, rapture believing mega church, that I need to be baptized again ?

    That was like 20 some years ago..

    thanks

    To me water baptism is written in the new testament. I have not read all the books in the bible. I am only able to write my opinion. If you enjoy something to want to learn all you can!!!! Water baptism is requested in the bible. Do it.
    I learn about the word of Yahweh everyday and enjoy it. Do the same. Love and peace Janis 911

    Pastor Visser covers this area in the Luke 12 message available in the Audio section.

    Janus 911,

    Pastor Visser's newest sermon "Baptism Doth Save Us" should answer all your questions concerning the importance of Baptism.

    Amen, brother. Scripture is the yardstick in all things.
    “The righteous mother of the seven children spake also as follows to her offspring: I was a pure virgin, and went not beyond my father’s house; but I took care of the built-up rib. No destroyer of the desert, or ravisher of the plain, injured me; nor did the destructive, deceitful, snake, make spoil of my chaste virginity; and I remained with my husband during the period of my prime.” (4 Maccabees 18:7-8)

    Yes, I did hear the sermon the other night. That message does make sense to me & answers questions too. Thanks to Pastor Visser for posting that sermon.

    I don't agree with Pastor Weiland view on the name of Jesus, but he has some really good information on baptism. His baptism booklet is very informative.
