passage, importance and significance of each)

Jesus was baptised
· John had been baptizing in the Jordan River. One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and
asked John to baptize him . John protested because he felt that Jesus was the one who should be
baptizing him. But Jesus told him that they needed to do this to fulfill all righteousness. It was the
right thing to do. So John baptized him in the river.
· Immediately after he was baptized, as he was praying, the heavens were opened and a dove came
down and rested on Jesus. It was the Spirit of God in the form of a bird that had come down to
show who Jesus was. Jesus saw it and John also saw the dove.
· Suddenly there was a voice from heaven saying, "You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well
pleased". The dove and the voice of God were a sign to John that Jesus was the Messiah who had
been promised.
· After this, John was again assembled with a group of people, and Jesus approached the group. John
told them what had happened. He said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the
world!" He told them that he had seen the Spirit of God coming down on Jesus in the form of a
dove. He said this had been a sign to him because God had revealed to him that the person on
whom he saw a dove descending would be the Son of God. This is how John would know for sure.…read more

Adult Baptism
· In some Baptist churches babies are not baptized. Instead, adults are baptized
when they are old enough to make the decision for themselves. This is known as
believers' baptism.
· The person being baptized is immersed in water three times, symbolizing them
washing their old life away. They wear white to symbolize a desire for purity.
· Believers Baptism is a symbolic act showing what has already happened to a person when
they became a Christian.
· By going into the water, they show that just as Jesus died for their sin, they too have died to
their old way of life without God. By going under the water, they show that just as Jesus was
buried, they too have buried their old way of life without God.
· By coming out of the water, they show that just as Jesus came back to life from the dead,
they too have received a new life in Him.
· When people are baptised, they are also showing that they belong to a new community of
Christians, known as the Church.…read more
