  • I believe they are separate events but can occur at the same time in certain settings. At our church we do not conduct a lot of spontaneous baptisms so repentance will always come first. We By we I mean I want to make sure the person honestly understands what is happening and that they are not just caught up in an emotional moment. The process of repentance at baptism is Almost an ad hoc insurance policy but more a formal time of reflection and introspection for the new believer. If I have misunderstood the point of your message sorry and feel free to redirect me. Basically I see them as two different but necessary events. I think of the believers Paul Encountered in the book of Acts where he ask have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed. They were considered believers but still need proper baptism.

    Jared Which baptism specifically? There are at least 7 baptisms connected to the believer in the NT?

    Jared Water baptism and salvation – separated works. When you say the Name do you convey oneness ?
