Core Value 10: Water Baptism is Good; Baptism by the Holy Spirit is Essential
Here Jesus asks John, to baptize Him not because He needed to affirm His repentance, but because it was “to fulfill all righteousness”. Jesus was saying that baptism is a confirmation of righteousness and that, in the case of sinners, it represents evidence of their cleansing, their repentance. It also represents a confirmation of the righteousness that comes after repentance.
Scripture Topic of the Week
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
