Baptism is a Christian rite of admission and adoption, almost invariably with the use of water, into Christianity. The synoptic gospels recount that John the Baptist baptised Jesus. Baptism is considered a sacrament in Commentary Bible Ministry. We also refer baptism as christenin.
The usual form of baptism in Commentary Bible Ministry involveds the candidate's immersion, either totally (submerged completely under the water) or partially (standing or kneeling in water while water was poured on him or her). John the Baptist's use of a deep river for his baptising suggests immersion:
And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need.
A sermon is an oration or lecture by a preacher (who is usually a member of the Church). Sermons address a scriptural, theological, religious, or moral topic, usually expounding on a type of belief, law, or behaviour within both past and present contexts. Elements of the sermon often include exposition, exhortation, and practical application. The act of delivering a sermon is known as preaching the word of God. In Commentary Bible Ministry, a sermon is usually delivered in a place of worship, either from an elevated architectural feature, known as a pulpit or an ambo. The Bible contains many speeches without inter locution, which some take to be sermons: Moses in Deuteronomy 1-33;
Jesus’ sermon on the mount in Matthew 5-7;(though the gospel writers do not specifically call it a sermon; the popular descriptor for Christ’s speech there came much later); Peter after Pentecost in Acts 2:14-40 (though this speech was delivered to non-believers and as such is not quite parallel to the popular definition of a sermon).
Volunteering is a basic biblical principle that we embrace and encourage. God has each of us unique gifts, talents, and abilities that can be used to make a difference in the church and the world. Each of us can play a valuable role in enlarging and progressing the church. A strong volunteer army can build a more effective church of Christ.
Commentary Bible Ministry mission is an organized effort to spread Word of God to new converts.
Missionaries have the authority to preach the Christian faith (and sometimes to administer sacraments), and provide humanitarian aid.
