BAPTISM CAME AFTER FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: Acts 10:44-4 7

SPIRITUAL CIRCUMCISION (MADE WITHOUT HANDS): Col. 2:9-13

BAPTISM NOT NECESSARY FOR SALVATION

(Sign of a Good Conscience toward God): 1 Pet. 3:21

(John 3 - We are born from above; water is from beneath.

FOUR IDENTIFYING WORDS:

-Identification: with Christ, death, burial, resurrection

-Regeneration: symbolic of our cleansing

-Participation: Rom. 6; we should walk with Him

-Confession (shows that a confession of sins was made): Acts. 2:38

-Testimony: Lets others know that you are not ashamed of Christ.
