that one must be
a devout believer and follower of Christ, and repent, before one
to baptize, so that the baptism may really happen. They believe that
'Christians' shall receive atonement from Christ with their baptism:
is exactly how it is and is clearly expressed in the
in the inerancy of Scripture, hold to the Fundamentals of the Christian
Faith. They have many fellow ships (independent church groups
with them) . Any of those who add nonsense
as we see with many churches, believe in their own
church will only
baptize people into their church. You often read 'baptize
membership'. I interpret this as church membership and not
membership of the church of Christ. I believe that they
have a questionnaire
for non-members who like to be baptized into the Church of Christ = 'Christian Church', to so confirm
that this person is a true believer in Christ and is earnestly ready to
surrender to Christ, with this final step in the process of reading,
repenting, and then baptizing to holiness.
Sprung from baptist
And like all the others,
these churches will only baptize people into their church!
God does not like this one bit! A true Christian will baptize
into the Church of Christ and let them go their way.
