A Matter of Believer’s Baptism

Selected Scriptures  (ID: 2059)

Augustine described the sacraments as “the visible words of God,” since only in the light of Scripture can we see how they point to Christ’s work. Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus’ baptism in particular foreshadowed His death and resurrection. He later instructed His disciples to be baptized and to baptize other believers. Today, we continue this pattern: when a believer is baptized, they declare their death to sin and new life in Christ.
