It has to be emphasised that immersion into the Body of Christ is not part of a religious ceremony, usually called "baptism", nor are there any "church" persons involved.
These "baptisms" are a mixture of these Body of Christ teachings, immersion in water, being born again, regeneration and salvation.
They are usually applied to babies and involves sprinkling them with water and referred to as the "one baptism".
No longer are Believers confused by "interpretations". Having received the Lord and being immersed into the Body of Christ, Believers know that:
"Now . . .
you are no longer strangers and foreigners,
but fellow citizens with the saints and
members of the household of God,
having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
in whom the whole building, being joined together,
grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
in whom you also are being built together
for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit,"
Prayer. Thank you, heavenly Father, for the great love and great grace that repentant sinners receive in this immersion.
In the name of Jesus. Amen.
