Baptism Saves You?

Robert Mossotti

Mr. Robert Mossotti, OPC Licentiate

On Sunday, June 19, 2016, Mr. Robert Mossotti preached “Baptism Saves You?” from 1 Peter 3:21-22.

Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.

The Church (Contours of Christian Theology)

The Church Cover
Status
: Checked Out

Publisher’s Description

At a time in which the very word church sounds a tone of dull irrelevance, the doctrine of the church has suffered the studied neglect of many Christian leaders. The persistent demands to market, manage and grow the church and to meet the felt needs of churched and unchurched all threaten to quench theological reflection on the abiding nature and mission of the church. But few activities bear greater promise as a starting point for renewing and reshaping the Christian church than the work of theology.

In this book Edmund Clowney takes up that task, addressing along the way a variety of contemporary concerns: worship, mission, church and culture, church and state, church order and discipline, the ministry of women, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, tongues and prophecy, signs and wonders. He draws on decades of thinking and teaching about the church as well as from his committed leadership and ministry within the church. Biblical, historical, systematic and Reformed, The Church is a timely and provocative reflection on the life, order and purpose of the household of God.

The Meaning and Mode of Baptism

Meaning and Mode of Baptism CoverStatus: Available

Description

The sound of the immersionist’s voice heard everywhere. Very few voices are raised in opposition. Obviously, some immersionists speak overmuch on the subject; but just as truly, most of those who disagree with them say far too little. Who knows whether the times are not now ripe for a fresh study? The words “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Eph 4:5) clearly indicate there is only one baptism. As a consequence, the meaning is single and the mode is single. (HT: Christian Book Distributors)
