BAPTISM SERMON OUTLINES

by James Merritt

Jesus had a ministry that lasted a little more than three years. Of all the things He could have started His ministry with and ended His ministry with, He started it by being baptized and concluded it by commanding the church to make disciples and baptize others. Now, since baptism was the bookends of the ministry of the Son of God, that alone should tell us that baptism, is a...

We continue our series today called Basic by talking about one of the strangest things that we do in the church. If you think about a church service most of the activity translates pretty well to the culture at large. So for example even if you have never been to church before, you have seen people singing songs you have heard a guy give a speech or stand to teach like a sermon, and...

You may wonder why I put this so late in these messages. It is because in scripture baptism always takes place as soon as possible after salvation. Many today are still seeking to know the Lord and I felt like putting baptism here near the last of these messages would be important because some of you having been through the experience of understanding what the Bible...

Would you take God's Word if you would and find the gospel of Mark. We're beginning a brand new series today in the gospel of Mark) It is a very exciting gospel because it is the gospel of action. You know God has given us four portraits of His son the Lord Jesus, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. And all of them are important. But God gave us four that we might see our Lord from...

We are in a continuing series from what Bible students call ''the great commission''--Jesus' final words to his followers. Working our way through this passage requires that we talk about baptism. As most of you know, many churches and denominations have differing views on baptism. One writer called it ''the water that...

OPEN: A woman once took her 4-year-old daughter to a baptismal service at her church. Later that night, her daughter took all of her dolls into the bathtub with her and held her own ''baptism.'' As she dunked each doll under the water, she repeated, ''Now I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son and hold your nose.'' APPLY: That little girl...

We are apprenticed to Jesus. We have chosen Him as our master to learn from and He has chosen us. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Our calling in life is to become like our master. First John 2:6 says that whoever abides in Him ought to walk in the same way that He walked. Second Corinthians 11:1 advises us to be imitators of Paul...

Jude describes the Christian life as a structure being built on a foundation, that foundation being our ''most holy faith.'' Salvation is the foundation of the Christian life. It is the starting point. But as Jude describes, it is not the stopping place. We are to be building on our faith. The tense of the words speaks of a life long building process. The Christian...

In our last lesson from chapter 5, we talked about justification by faith, how that a man is justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law. We read in Galatians 2:16, ''Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not...

''All beginnings are hard.'' So begins one of Chaim Potok's novels. Indeed, the beginning of that novel is hard to read, as it traces how difficult making a beginning can be. A young boy struggles to make a new beginning in his life against the flow of tradition which encapsulates him. To struggle against the flow of how life has...

The Gospel according to Mark seems to desire to introduce his writing by telling us that He who was predicted to come has now come. His coming is not the beginning of His life, but of His ministry. Jesus Christ, the Son of God is now ready to emerge from OBSCURITY that He might publicly accomplish SALVATION...

Baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church. Both were commanded by the Lord. They are important. There are many false ideas about baptism. There is no saving quality in baptism. It is an external rite that does not touch the heart. Baptism is not for babies. Baptism is for those who consciously know...

Today we celebrate the communion of saints in All Saints Sunday. Today we celebrate the Christening of three new saints by baptizing three people in two different services. First I would like to tell you about a rather large and very old baptismal font.While touring Israel in 1977, I visited a 5th century Byzantine church where the...

One of the least understood principles of scripture is the infilling and baptism of the Holy Spirit. Many miss the greater blessing of experiencing God because they believe that salvation is the baptism and what you get is all there is. This is not what the Bible teaches. The Bible does teach that we receive the Holy Spirit at the...

I’ve baptized in lakes and swimming pools and portable baptistries and traditional baptistries. I’ve baptized with waders and robes and tshirts and swimming trunks. I’ve baptized young people and old folks, girls and boys. I’ve baptized here in the states and overseas and here’s what I’ve concluded - they’re all...

Christianity can either be a delight or it can be drudgery, depending on whether or not you know what the doctrine of the Holy Spirit is and you have availed yourself of the Spirit's power in your life. This church all through the years has made much of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, insomuch that some people come and...
