In Holy Scripture, there is indeed adult baptism — as well as infant baptism. Yet both -not by saturating from below, but solely by sprinkling from above. However, there is neither antipaedobaptism nor baptismal regenerationism nor submersionism in God’s Holy Word.
This we shall endeavour to demonstrate adequately below, under ten successive headings. Viz.: (1) Baptism in the Older Testament; (2) Baptism between the Older and the Newer Testaments; (3) Baptism as administered by John; (4) Baptism as administered by Christ’s Ministers; (5) Anabaptist and Baptist views of baptism are contrary to those of the Early Church; (6) Submersion and other post-apostolic baptismal heresies arisen since 250 A.D.; (7) Baptism for the Protestant Reformers Luther and Zwingli; (8) John Calvin’s Biblical views on baptism; (9) The baptismal theology of the genius of Geneva; and (10) Consistently-Biblical baptism for today!
