Most people assume that water baptism is something that Christians should still practice today, but they certainly don’t agree as to who, how, or why it should be practiced. The Apostle Paul, our apostle for this present dispensation of grace, declares in Ephesians 4:3-6 that one aspect of the unity of the Spirit is that there is only one baptism. In this brief series, we examine what Paul meant by this and how it affects our understanding of the place of baptism in God’s purpose for His people.

These Bible messages on the One Baptism were preached by Pastor Gregg Bing in 2006-2007 during the morning worship services at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

Israel, Gentiles, the Church - Part 5

Dispensational Distinctions

The stoning of Stephen was a significant turning point in God's dealings with Israel, the Gentiles, and the Church. It marked the rejection of the ministry of the Holy Spirit by the Jews in the homeland. Following this key event, a number of changes take place which are recorded in Acts 8-12 showing a gradual move away from the Jews and toward the Gentiles. In Acts 13, the focus shifts from Peter and the Twelve to that of the Apostle Paul.
