Experiential Baptism: What Else Does Baptism Help Us Experience?

leave a comment »

Here is a list of things (although not exhaustive) that baptism helps us experience.

  • Salvation (forgiveness of sins, washing away sins, blood of Christ)
  • Jews crossing the Red Sea
  • Circumcision
  • Ceremonial Washings
  • Baptism of the Holy Spirit
  • Being born again

There are likely others, but the important thing to remember is that baptism is how we experience these realities, it does not cause them to happen nor is the baptism the actual reality itself.
