Baptism is about our need for the Holy Spirit. It is far more about the good work that God is going to do in us.
It is important for us to fully understand what God does at baptism. Joe Dobson gives four points:
1) Foundation of our faith in Jesus Christ;
3) Devoted to obeying God and being fully yielded to how we must change.
4) God is the Father and originator of the divine family.
Joe Dobson pastors the United Church of God congregations in the Kansas City and Topeka, KS and Columbia and St. Joseph, MO areas. Joe and his wife Pat are empty-nesters living in Olathe, KS. They have two sons, two daughters-in-law and four wonderful grandchildren.
