In this document, I hope that all things concerning baptism will be set in order. Namely, the method of baptism (whether we are to be dunked, sprinkled, or something else; whether or not we are to be baptized as adults or infants), the name in which we are to be baptized (be it "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost," or "Jesus Christ"), the reason we are to be baptized (whether it is an "outward sign of an inward change" or for the purposes of "identification with...," or "for the forgiveness of sins"), and whether or not it is required for salvation itself (either it is, or it isn't). All of these topics will be discussed.
Background: Before we begin: it is understood that the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, as given among men, is "Jesus Christ." There are other Bible studies in this series which specifically address this topic.
