The Beliefs of In God's Hands Ministries - Mode of BaptismWater baptism is to be administered only by immersion. Paul said, “We are buried with him [Jesus Christ] by baptism” (Romans 6:4; see Colossians 2:12), Jesus came up “out of the water” (Mark l:10), and Philip and the eunuch went down “into the water” and came up “out of the water” (Acts 8:38-39).

Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection are applied to our lives when we experience New Testament Salvation: “Repent [death to sin], and be baptized [burial] every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [resurrection].” (See Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; 8:2.)

Sprinkling, pouring or infant baptism of any kind cannot be substantiated by the Word of God, but are only human traditions.
