Baptism, part of the Great Commission, is one of the two sacraments ordained by Christ. As we confess our need for forgiveness, we recognize that God has already provided everything our souls require through the sacrificial gift of His Son. In a careful consideration of why baptism is necessary and what it means, Alistair Begg explores this important step of obedience in the life of a Christian.
16Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in2 the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
