Baptism & Rebaptism
A Sign of Repentance and a New Dispensation
Christ’s simple command to “follow me” was given repeatedly (e.g., Matt; 8:22). Christ showed the way by being baptized to “fulfill all righteousness” (Matt. 3:15). It was only after Christ was baptized that the Father commended Jesus and said He was “well pleased” (Matt. 3:13-17). Christ also instructed His disciples baptize those that believed in Him (John 4:1).
