In the New Testament, to ‘repent’ means to ‘make a change in the frame of mind, and to reform’. While sin is the result of a person pleasing himself in what he does, the sinner coming to God in repentance admits his total inability to please God. The Bible tells us that “there is none righteous ” (Romans 3:10). Repentance is not merely the feeling of guilt or  sorrow or even crying with tears over sin as Hebrews 12:16-17 shows.

Biblical repentance involves the actual forsaking of sin (Proverbs 28:13) and turning unto God. The person who has come to the Lord Jesus Christ, in repentance, cannot continue to live in sin.


Baptism is not merely a symbol as many teach today, it is not just a matter of get wet because the Bible says so. Baptism is “for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38)therefore Baptism is far more important and powerful than most people seem to realise (1 Peter 3:21). Restoration into the favour of a loving God is found through obedience. To be baptized is a command of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19).

The Bible teaching on baptism is believers’ immersion, as illustrated throughout the Word, and is not to be confused with the unscriptural practice of infant sprinkling. Baptism is a commandment to all believers in the name of Jesus (Acts 2:38). It is also evidence of true repentance and a “good conscience toward God.” (1 Peter 3:21).


You are promised a wonderful experience with your Saviour.

“He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire …” (Matthew 3:11 KJV).

You are encouraged to receive this power. (Luke 11:9-13). By reading and believing the many accounts of the Holy Spirit in the early Church, you will find great faith to claim this experience. You will ‘speak in tongues’ as promised to all believers (Mark 16:17).
