What is the truth about baptism?
Nearly all groups in "Christendom" require some kind of baptism for full membership.1 There is wide variation among churches regarding various aspects related to this doctrine, but all agree that the Bible includes it in the teaching and practice of the church.
What a blessing it would be to the world if all could "speak the same thing" and have "no divisions among" us on this vital topic! (1 Corinthians 1:10). Such unity is desirable because Jesus said it would help the world believe that God sent Him (John 17:20-21). Such unity is attainable by using a common objective standard. That standard is God’s Word (John 17:17).
Finding salvation is life’s most important quest (Matthew 13:44-46). It is worth whatever struggle or price one has to endure or pay to have it. Paul wrote, "I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory" (2 Timothy 2:10). God wants "all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:4). Divine truth is knowable and liberating (John 8:31-32). Finding truth on any Bible theme, therefore, is important.
