James 2:19 NIV
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—
and shudder.
Matthew 7:13-14, 21-23 NKJ
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that
leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is
the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who
find it… Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom
of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to
Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out
demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I
will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice
lawlessness!’”

Baptizo: to submerge, to immerse, to be overwhelmed by
Two Baptisms a Disciple Goes Through:

  1. Baptism in Water
    Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
    Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth
    has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
    baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy
    Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I’ve commanded you.”
    What’s the significance of baptism?
    • It symbolizes a total surrender
    • It symbolizes our identification with the death, burial, & resurrection of
    Jesus Christ
    Romans 6:3-4 NIV
    Don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were
    baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism
    into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the
    glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Two Baptisms a Disciple Goes Through:

  1. Baptism in Water
  2. Baptism in the Holy Spirit
    Acts 1:8 NIV
    You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be
    my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of
    the earth.
    Dunamis: force, miraculous power
    Luke 11:11-13 NIV
    Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake
    instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then,
    though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much
    more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!
