Baptism by immersion, as practiced by the early church, symbolizes the believerâ€™s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Unfortunately, various innovations and heresies were gradually introduced: that one must be baptized to be saved [and] that baptism itself saves the soul even when administered to infants. These heresies became known as the doctrine of baptismal regeneration and continue to our present day. To preach baptismal regeneration is to preach a false gospel that cannot save.
Distilled from chapters in Dave Hunt's books and newsletter articles on pivotal issues, these eight-panel, black-and-white tracts were created because of the frequency of reader inquiry.
