John, Jesus and Baptism

Alot of people are not sure if we get our Baptism through the sprinkling of Water or through some other way, so lets ask John himself.

Mark 1: 4 John the baptizer appeared  in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

The bold part is where John says that the Baptism authority will be given over to someone greater than him. Jesus is the Baptizer and he will Baptize those who believe after thay have repented from their Sins.

In Jesus name Amen.
