I won't find a sinner's prayer, a baptism with the name of Jesus verbally invoked over baptizee, or someone being "prayed through" ...

But like Acts .... a life in Christ ... is made new.

This not the result of properly administred baptisms .... sorry.

Don't confuse your circle of fellowship w/ the Body.

I won't dispute the point that most likely the baptizer didn't speak the name of Jesus over someone, but most likely the baptizee called on the name himself. Acts 22:16, and which is fullfillment of Romans 10:9, but there is something significant identifying with and be baptized into the body or death of Jesus. Romans 6 details this much better than any arguement. As you have stated in many threads, 2 commands 1 gift to be received. To know a command and not obey that same command to be baptized is sin and a demonstration of unbelief which will keep one out of the kingdom.
Please pray for India

My personal mission is to BRING people into a right relationship with God, GROW them up to maturity and SEND them back into the world to minister.
