The Easter 2023 testimonies and baptisms of two adult members of north clackamas Bible community (Jessica and Dan) occasioned a short teaching on the ordinance. Prior to each of the testimonies of conversion to Jesus Christ and confirmed evidence of growth, Mike Sperou, Senior Pastor of ncBc, explains the meaning and significance of the ordinance of baptism from Matthew 28.19-20 and Romans 6.3-7.
Matthew 28.19-20: And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Romans 6.3-7: Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.
The first half of this 30-minute video focuses on Mike’s clear, concise, and comprehensive teaching regarding the meaning and significance of baptism.
