Over the centuries, baptism has been one of the most emotionally charged issues the church has ever faced.
If we were led by human tradition or majority opinion, then the simplest thing to do would be to hold a vote, and let the majority decide.
But we are led by the Word of God. We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God. In all matters of Christian faith and life, the authority of the Word of God is supreme. We don’t avoid difficult subjects. We come to the Scripture to be taught, and submit to what God says.
So this morning we will look to the Word of God to tell us what we need to know about baptism.
