What Kind Of Baptism Is This?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what you mean, but I've always heard this verse in reference to a believers water baptism (by immersion). In baptism we are buried with Christ as we are submerged in the water, and our rising from the water is symbolic of our rising to new life in Him.

Hello swathdiver

A quick look at the context seems to point to this talking about our “Baptism in the Spirit”:(The one that happens at the moment of our salvation)......

First because this baptism “event” is called... “the operation of God”(V.12)

Also, this baptism “quickens” us.....
“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;” (Colossians 2:13)
While, our water baptism, is simply an act of obedience that God blesses.

It's the baptism of the Holy Spirit that takes place when you get saved. It's spiritual, no water involved. 

 

In the mind of God he sees the believer's life going back to the cross and being crucified with Christ, buried, risen again and even already seated at his right hand in glory (Eph. 1:3; Col. 3:1; Romans 8:30). This is because our spirits were united with Christ by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Our salvation is so sure that our spirits are already seated in glory because of our union with Jesus Christ via the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Think on that one for a while.

 

Water baptism is just a testimony to men and angels of our burial and resurrection with Christ.

Yes, no baptizing regeneration, it takes place the moment a person is saved, that persons salvation is sealed at that moment in time, not when baptized.
