Key Passage: Matthew 28:19

Why Immersion?

  • Seems to be the regular practice of the New Testament Church.

  • baptizo (Greek: βαπτίζω) - to dip repeatedly, to immerse, to submerge (of sunken vessels); to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to make clean with water, to wash one's self, bathe.
