The only example of the method of baptism in the Bible is by immersion. Jesus was baptized by immersion. Jesus told the disciples to do likewise.



Baptism by immersion signifies the washing and complete cleansing from all sin. Sprinkling would seem to signify only a partial cleansing, and at an age that one is not conscious of their sin.

It is my belief that man or woman should be baptized like Jesus.  John was "the way, and the light."  I don't subscribe to all the legalism, however, being baptized like people in the bible and especially Jesus seems ok to me.

Expertise

I am privileged to be able to offer an alternative insight into the complicated world of Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) theology. I will rely heavily on the Bible, but will also consider history and use logic in exposing deficiencies in SDA teachings. I would ask anyone who is considering becoming a SDA or if you are already in the SDA church, but are searching for the truth, to please allow me to offer a different explanation for the claims of the SDA. Remember : "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). I can answer your questions pertaining to the beliefs and history of the SDA. I am not able to answer questions concerning spirituality or church discipline.

Experience

I have extensively studied the theology of the Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) for a number of years. I have many books and tape sets produced by experts in this field of study. I have debated current members of the SDA church. I have a great desire to help these people see the truth.
