5. Baptism is the sacrament of allegiance of them that are to be received into the Kingdom of God, that is to say, into Eternal life, that is to say, to Remission of Sin. For as Eternal life was lost by the committing, so it is recovered by the remitting of men’s sins. – THOMAS HOBBES

8. Lastly, we must also know what Baptism signifies, and why God has ordained just such external sign and ceremony for the Sacrament by which we are first received into the Christian Church. But the act or ceremony is this that we are sunk under the water, which passes over us, and afterwards are drawn out again. These two parts, to be sunk under the water and drawn out again, signify the power and operation of Baptism, which is nothing else than putting to death the old Adam, and after that, the resurrection of the new man, both of which must take place in us all our lives, so that truly Christian life is nothing else than a daily baptism, once begun and ever to be continued. – MARTIN LUTHER

You understand that Christ died in your place on the cross, paying for your sins, fully forgiving you for all your wrongs. You are cleansed from guilt, and you are becoming a cleaner, healthier, more whole person.- BRIAN D. MCLAREN

12. Arise, and be baptized,
And wash thy sins away;
Thy league with God be solemnized,
Thy faith avouched today. – EDWARD HENRY BICKERSTETH

BAPTISM QUOTSE

no other fount I know;
nothing but the blood of Jesus. – ROBERT LOWRY

And this may therefore be a type of the washing in baptism, wherein such men as are cleansed of the leprosy of Sin by Faith, are received into the church with the solemnity of baptism. – THOMAS HOBBES
