Haven’t we all wondered why it’s so important to be baptised? We often have, the process as baptism is seen to be a process involved in us finding salvation. As I spoke to one of the theology students they each had they personal belief in baptism and why they think people should get baptised. I often was surprised on what some of them said. Some people were so happy to speak about it and others filled with strong serious emotion on this matter. The importance of baptism is often overlooked but through going through my own personal research I have found the correct need to why baptism is essential in our everyday lives. Baptism affects us all spiritually and emotionally. It’s a sense of an attachment of being closer to God.

Due to the time of Roman Empire it was a bad thing to believe in Jesus Christ which led to his crucification that led to the sacrament we know today and the importance e of this. Christians should be baptized. It's not something we do in order to be saved, but it's something we do because we are saved.

    I agree in totally with the part of the quote that says, “following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world that has discovered its fallenness”. We sometimes look over this key factor, but our relationship with christ has made christianity more personal for us and our redemption stories. I not always fully understood what God had in plan for me, and I even thought that he did not love me. Then I was introduced to the catholic faith and was shown how much God truly cared for me. I was also shown that although I was part of a fallen world, that redemption was possible for me.…

    In other words the believer should, with much expectation, seek to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The idea for this comes from the passage in Joel and was considered the fulfillment. The idea for this passage both stated and defended as their theological bases comes from the verses that talk about how there would be an outpouring of the Spirit on all people. It would be hard not to mention the Holy Spirit without mentioning this key passage for Pentecostals. According to the Assemblies as well as other denominations the baptism is considered to be a normal experience for the believer.…

    The King Jesus Gospel Book Reflection Joshua Helms GLST 220-001 9/22/15 The Gospel is an interesting topic that seems to be an endless discussion for pastors, professors, and theologians. It is essentially a spiritual glue that holds us as Christians together in order to seek after God. My personal understanding of the Gospel was bland before taking GLST 220 and I am grateful to have a better understanding of it now. As Christians, we should always be seeking how to fully understand the Gospel and what it means to serve the Kingdom of God. My understanding of the Gospel was not the best.…

    It is in this period that people are more excited about hermeneutics and the interpretation of scripture. Yes, it is agreed that the history of Christianity is important and the Pauline epistles are pertinent to the development of Christianity as we know it today. But just as pertinent as Paul’s letters are to the development of Christianity, they are just as important to the growth and maturity of every believer. Jesus is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle, and at that time the inspired Word of God found in the Pauline epistles will have completed its course in perfecting the…

Sanctification means that faith in God 's action does not exclude but includes Christian action in the world and that the Christian life is not only a great task but also a great…

    As smith said, worship defines us in a way that it reflects not only who we are, but what we love. Therefore, if we as Christians claim that we love God, we need to reflect that in worshiping Him in truth and allow that worship to take us over, to humble us, and control the task of our discipleship. It’s like saying that as Christians, our lives needs to flow out of the worship experience that we participated in earlier on a sunday. This worship experience then influence our lives, forms and shapes us even outside the context of Christian…
