Although specific baptism practices differ among churches, Paul cited “one baptism” in Ephesians 4 as part of the foundation of Christian unity. Cross referencing this passage with Romans 6, Alistair Begg focuses on the spiritual nature of baptism that applies for all believers at conversion. Our union with Christ in His death and resurrection gives us a new identity—an identity based on Christ’s finished work, not on our feelings. A firm grasp of these truths will enable us to maintain the unity of the Spirit with all who are in Him.
5one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
