4 Biblical Facts on Jesus Name Baptism by Talmadge French Ph.D.
Biblical Facts Concerning Jesus Name Baptism:
These facts are excerpts from Talmadge French's publication "Jesus Name Baptism" printed by Voice & Vision Publications.
Biblical Fact #1: New Testament baptism was administered exclusively in the name of Jesus--signifying the original and the fixed formula. Alteration in the Apostolic mode and form of baptism for any reason is Scripturally unwarranted.
Biblical Fact #2: That worthy name, which is to be called over every believer in the waters of baptism, is the name "Jesus"--"The Name" above every other name!
Biblical Fact #3: The efficacy of baptism is not in the water itself, but in the saving name of Jesus, for He bears a name attesting to His power and absolute Deity.
Biblical Fact #4: Baptism is always with reference to Jesus Christ alone, His saving work and name, and, thus an aspect of the believers's own identification with Christ and the Gospel.
