Outline on Studies Re: Believers’ Baptism

I. Three main reasons usually adduced by Baptist for Believer’s BAptism

1. Mode of Baptism is Immersion (But Greek Orthodox do tri-immersion of babies)

2. No Direct Command to baptize infants-but only believers (No abrogation of command to apply covenant sign to infants either)

3. No Direct Example of baptizing infants-only believers or adults (but there are household baptisms and children are considered holy in 1 Corinthians)

II. The Covenant of Abraham and the rite of Circumcion applied to his seed

III. The Exodus-Israel Covenant is similar and conjunct to the Abrahamic Covenant.

IV. The New Covenant in Jeremiah 31-  Election and Covenant

V. The Disturbing passages in New Testament better explained by Believer’s Baptism: John 1:12-13 and Galatians 3:6, 26-29
