The Teaching of Immersions


"Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ,

let us go on to perfection, not laying again

the foundation of repentance from dead works

and of faith toward God,

of the teaching of immersions, of laying on of hands,

of resurrection of the dead and of eternal judgment.

And this we will do if God permits," Hebrews 6'1-3.


Kingdom life discipleship includes immersions. The first public event for Jesus in His walk with His Father was to be immersed in water.

As soon as He came up out of the water the Holy Spirit came upon Him and the Father spoke His approval from heaven.

Immersions are very important to God. That's why they are included in the foundational elementary principles of the oracles of God.

They are:

Immersion into the Body of Christ. This is the work of the Holy Spirit. Only He can do it.

Immersion in Water. This is for the person who has received Christ who understands the salvation truths of His death and resurrection on their behalf.

Immersion in the Holy Spirit. This immersion occurs when God gives the Holy Spirit to a Believer, in Jesus' name. Jesus said that the giving of the Spirit is the promise of the Father.

"The immersion I am immersed with". Jesus spoke of this as a real possibility. Perhaps it could be called "His" immersion.

These truths and understandings of immersions and examples of Believers' immersions are found throughout the New Covenant Kingdom scriptures of Acts 2'1 through to Revelation 3'22.

Note, the immersions performed by John and the Lord's Disciples were transitional and therefore not part of the foundational elementary principles of the oracles of God.

However, the Lord's own immersion in water is a prime example.
