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 6

Dispensational Distinctions

Paul's final journey in the book of Acts led him to Rome, where we see the final turning point in his ministry. Paul pronounced a final spiritual blindness on the Jews and turned to the Gentiles. From his prison house in Rome, he wrote several letters in which he fully revealed the truth of the mystery concerning the Church, the Body of Christ. While the Church began sometime in the middle part of the book of Acts, the full unveiling of the truth of it did not occur till after Acts 28.

Scripture References: Ephesians 3:1-9, Acts 28:17-28, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23
