  • Question 01
    What was the purpose of Jesus’ baptism for us today?
  • Question 02
    What two things took place after Jesus was baptized? How is this pattern present when we are baptized?
  • Question 03
    What does it mean for us to be born again? How does the imagery shape our understanding of what it means to become a Christian?
  • Question 04
    What are the foundational principles that must be set in place before one can become a Christian? What must you understand and do before being baptized?
  • Question 05
    Read Ephesians 2:8. What is it that saves us from our sins? Can we do something to save ourselves and earn our salvation? Is the act of immersing yourself in water by itself what gets rid of your sins or is there something else?
  • Question 06

    38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. -Acts 2:38 (ESV)

    After your study, do you see baptism as essential to salvation? What does Acts 2:38 refer to as the purpose of baptism?
  • Question 07
    What does baptism resemble?
  • Question 08
    How are we to live after we are born again?
  • Exercise 01
    This may be a new concept to many of you. Whether you have been baptized already or not, how has this lesson shaped your understanding of baptism and what it means to be born again? If you have already been baptized, how does the Bible’s teaching about baptism compare with your own?
  • Exercise 02
    If you are a Christian how does this lesson encourage and strengthen your walk with God? What encouraging words would you say to someone who has not repented and been baptized for the forgiveness of their sins?
  • Exercise 03
    Perhaps you have not yet been baptized for the forgiveness of your sins. Perhaps you see that your baptism does not match the “standard” or pattern set in the Bible (cf. Romans 6:3-4, 17). Feel free to ask further questions. Reach out to a mentor on Mathetis or send us a message at The Mathetis team can put you in contact with a fellow Christian in your area to help answer your questions and to help you be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins as seen in the Bible.
