Episode 28.1: Defining Baptism

What are the historical roots to water baptism? Did the Old Testament have any precursors to baptism? When did Christ ordain baptism? What about the baptism of John? Where do we see that baptism is a solemn admission into the visible church? How is it a sign and seal of our ingrafting into Christ, regeneration, remission of sins, and newness of life? Are there any who would disagree with this definition of baptism? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 28.1:

Baptism is a sacrament of the New Testament, ordained by Jesus Christ, not only for the solemn admission of the party baptized into the visible Church, but also to be unto him a sign and seal of the covenant of grace, of his ingrafting into Christ, of regeneration, of remission of sins, and of his giving up unto God, through Jesus Christ, to walk in newness of life: which sacrament is, by Christ’s own appointment, to be continued in his Church until the end of the world.
