baptizing in the wilderness and preaching
baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Mark 1:4
And when all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having
been baptized with the baptism of John. But the pharisees and lawyers rejected
the will of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him. Luke 7 : 29-30
we were buried with Him through baptism into
death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the
Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6 : 4.
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved
us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. Titus 3 : 5.
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming
after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Matthew 3 : 11.
