Baptism Ceremony - Outline

Outline 1:

Worldwide Church of God Baptism Ceremony - (Outline by Herbert W Armstrong)

   Minister asks: "Have you repented of your sins?"

   Individual responds: "Yes"

   Minister states: "Mr. (repeat person's full name and say :) As a result of your repentance of your sins, which is the transgression of God's Holy and Righteous and Perfect Law, and your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, your Lord and Master, your High priest and soon coming King, I now baptize you, not into any sect or denomination of this world but I baptize you into the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, by and through the authority of Jesus Christ for the remission of all of your sins. Amen."

   Minister baptizes the individual.

   Minister tells the individual: "Congratulations, your sins are now forgiven."


Outline 2:

The Baptism Formula - (Outline from Preparing for the Ministry)

   The following is the baptism formula written out years ago by Mr. Herbert W. rmstrong for the ministers:

   "Have you repented of all your sins?"

   "Do you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?"

   "What is your full name?"

   "Then (full name) as a result of your repentance, and because you do accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, your Lord and Master, your present High Priest in heaven and your soon-coming King, I now baptize you into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and I do this in the name of (by the authority of) Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. Amen"

   This can be varied slightly or added to slightly when you are baptizing a number of people together and you don't want to sound repetitious. However, all the points given should be mentioned each time you baptize anyone.
