WHY DO WE NEED TO BAPTISE IN THE NAME OF JESUS???
Spreading the Word Without Saying a Word Ministry

- Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
- Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 16 For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
- Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
- Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
- John 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
- John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Why Do We Believe in Baptizing in the Name of Jesus? BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THE WORD OF GOD TEACHES!!! Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you
in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Father did not die on the cross, nor did the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit had not yet come. We were baptized into Jesus’s death (Romans 6:3). Therefore if we are Baptized into His death, then we need to Baptise in His name!!!
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
REMEMBER, ACTS 2:38 SAYS TO BAPTISE IN
“THE NAME OF JESUS”!!!
An “illustration” to understanding the GODHEAD: My husband Chico is one person, but he has three different titles, depending on who you are in relation to him.
Chico has children – for illustration purposes, we will say they call him FATHER which is a title, but his name is still CHICO!!!
Chico has parents – they call him SON, which is a title, but his name is still CHICO!!!
Chico has friends – they call him their FRIEND, which is a title, but his name is still CHICO!!!
CHICO is ONLY one person, but he has three different titles, in and of himself; he is called FATHER (title), he is called SON (title) and he is called FRIEND (title)!!!
Those three titles, FATHER, SON and FRIEND only have “ONE NAME”, the NAME IS CHICO. Just like My husband Chico has three manifestations in and of himself, SO DOES GOD.
Let’s examine this next verse closely and see what the “Word of GOD” has to say about the “TITLES OF GOD”. Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name(the word “NAME” is singular, meaning ONE NAME) of the FATHER (title), and of the SON (title), and of the HOLY GHOST (title). The word FATHER is a title for someone who has children, one cannot use the title of “FATHER” FOR A MALE WHO DOES NOT have children.
Let’s see what the Bible says the FATHER’S NAME IS.
NOW WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT
FATHER IS A TITLE ONLY…
WHEN JESUS said in John 5:43 “I am come in my FATHER’S NAME“, WE HAVE TO REALIZE THAT
JESUS IS THE FATHER’S NAME TOO!!!
NOW WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT SON IS A TITLE ONLY…WE ALREADY KNOW THAT THE SON’S NAME IS JESUS!!!
Now we need to find out what the name of the Holy Spirit is. NOW WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT HOLY SPIRIT IS A TITLE ONLY…
John 14:26 But the Comforter, “which is the HOLY GHOST”, whom the FATHER will send “in MY NAME” (JESUS). Notice what JESUS said in this verse, the FATHER, WHICH IS A TITLE will send IN “MY NAME”. JESUS is the Name. Once again, There are THREE TITLES, but ONLY ONE NAME, that describes THE NAME JESUS!!!
DO YOU KNOW JESUS? HAVE YOU TRULY GIVEN YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST AND ASKED HIM TO BE YOUR SAVIOR? CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO FIND OUT HOW TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR!!! TIME IS SHORT JESUS IS COMING REAL SOON, DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND!!!
SOON, THE TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS WILL BE RAPTURED FROM THIS WORLD THAT HAS FORGOTTEN AND FORSAKEN GOD!!! 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
