Holy Baptism

In Matthew 28:19 Jesus commissions the church to, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  We baptize because Christ commanded us to do so.  The benefits of baptism are forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life.  Romans 6: 23, I Peter 3:20 and Titus 3: 5
