Although Jesus commands believers to be baptized and Scripture assumes that all believers will have been baptized, many churches place little importance on baptism. It’s no surprise, then, that many Christians are left with questions: Why should I be baptized? What is the meaning of baptism? Who should be baptized? When should I be baptized? These are the kinds of questions David Platt answers in this message from Acts 2:36–41. Every follower of Christ should see not only the necessity of baptism but also the beauty and the privilege of identifying with Christ and his church.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, Counter Culture, and Something Needs to Change.
