The scriptures are clear that "Baptism by water" does not play any part in a persons Salvation, but rather is a command from the Lord to follow, and therefore is an act of obedience to the Lord.
Acts 2:41 "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized..."
Acts 8:35-37 "Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. vs 36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? vs 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

New Lambton Baptist Church have kindly allowed us to use their building for the baptisms. Thank you!
John and Adam will be giving their testimony regarding their Salvation by receiving Jesus Christ as their Saviour. After this they will follow the Lord in baptism by their own request, showing the picture of the Gospel (Death, Burial, and Resurrection) in which they have put their trust in.
Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
