Baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
Is the original baptism that was practiced by?
 The Apostles. It is not something new but if
You look carefully at the Scriptures, you will
 Find that was not one person in the whole
Bible who was ever baptized in the name of
 The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. For 330
Years after Christ: every body was baptized
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The
Roman Catholics then organized and become
A denomination, and started to baptize in the
Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Reference to any Church history book will
Prove this, but here are a few in particular
Which may be found in the public library.

You desire.
These works and many others that I
Am not taking the space to list them here,
Prove that baptism in the name of the
Father, Son and Holy Ghost is a tradition
Of man started by the Catholic Church
And carried on by almost all other
Denominations.
This is an error and a false baptism.
 
 
Hundreds of years, Luther saw many errors in their ways,
But continued to baptize in the name of Father, son and Holy Ghost. Around 1525, the Anabaptists saw that it was Wrong to baptize infants, and began to immerse grown-ups
(Page 231, "The Growth of the Christian Church", by Nichols.)
 In the 1700's Wesley received more light on the scriptures,
 But continued the Catholic baptism formula, which was the
Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Then Pentecost
Came, people were filled with the Holy Spirit, but they hung
 On to the same thing, and it has been going on like that.
So for some 1600 years we have had baptism, which was not
The one in the beginning--it started right but the Roman
Catholic Church changed it.
The Catholic Church changed the formula that was originally
Used, and they changed the method or mode of baptizing.
After Paul and Peter and Jesus Christ were gone, and other
Early Church fathers, the Roman Catholic Church began to
Baptize by sprinkling the little children on their foreheads 
And using the title "name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost".
In Acts 2:38 we read, " Repent, and be baptized every one
Of you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission
Of sins," but how can an infant repent when he doesn't know
He is a sinner? SO what part of there Catholic baptism is?
Wrong? It is all-wrong. Every part of it is wrong. There is no
Such thing in the Bible. Does it say to baptize infants when?
They don’t understand, and cannot repent of sin. No. The http://www.revbrianrichards.com
Water part of that baptism is wrong also, for we don’t spinkle
 Infants no grown -up but rather full immerse the people. We
Can not immerse infants any way you would drown them.
The Bible baptism is clearly for believers of mature age.
 
[Column 2]
The wording is also all-wrong. Then the whole baptism is
Wrong. In fact the people that have not been baptized in Jesus
Names are not really baptized. For if its not scriptural every
 Part of that baptism was totally wrong. And since then we
Have got the revelation of the true Christian baptism, which is
Scriptural.
 
 
Scriptures regarding immersion, which means to be totally immersed in water, are as follows: Matthew 3: 16 “and Jesus when he was baptized went straightway out of the water”. Acts 8: 38 “And they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch and he baptized him”. Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death…..” Baptism is a type of the burial of our sins.
Every person who was ever baptized in the Bible and there was about 8,012 of them mentioned were all baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 8:12-16
Acts 2:38-42
Acts 10:48
Acts 4:4-12
Acts 19:3-6
If you check Peter’s teaching, and also Paul’s teaching, (who were a prophet as well as an apostle), you will see that both taught and practiced baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. If anybody can cast these two men’s teachings out of the Bible, then they might as well cast the whole Bible away.
It is essential that we be very careful to go by the Scripture, rather than traditions of man. Note Galatians 1:11 and 12, “But I certify you, brethren,
That the gospel, which was preached of me, is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ”. See verse 16 also. And also note Galatians 1:8 and 9 –“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received let him be accursed.” Therefore all ministers whom baptize people in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are cursed according to Paul’s teaching, but they don’t know they are cursed.
Some people who are doubtful feel they would rather obey Jesus than Peter, but Acts 1:1 and 2 says that JESUS THROUGH THE HOLY GHOST GAVE COMMANDMENTS UNTO THE APOSTLES; also having given the keys of the kingdom to Peter. (Matt 16:19). Peter commanded the people to be baptized in the name of the Lord (Jesus). Acts 10: 48 and Acts 2: 38
John 16:12 and 13 reads like this –“I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when
 
[Column 3.]
He, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come”. In that passage we see that, while there were things the Apostles would not understand at the time of Jesus was with them on earth, the Holy Spirit would guide them into all truth, and show them these things after Jesus was gone. In other words the Spirit would reveal NEW truths. See also John 14: 26 in which Jesus promised that the Holy Ghost would teach them all things. The Holy Spirit revealed, and made very clear to the Apostles that the Name (not title) of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost was Jesus.
In addition to the eight thousand and twelve people who were mentioned previously, we see in Acts 18:8 that after hearing Paul’s teaching, Crispus the chief ruler of the synagogue believed on the Lord with all his house. And many of the Corinthians hearing believed and were baptized. We know  Paul taught baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, as in the nineteenth chapter of Acts we see where Ephensians who had been baptized by John the Baptist were baptized again in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ after hearing Paul’s teaching on the matter. Again, in addition to the eight thousand and twelve mentioned, we see Philip, when in Samaria, baptized a number of people in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 8: 5. –12 and 16 and even Simon the scorerer was baptized in [verse 13]
With regard to the words which Jesus spoke as recorded in Matthew 28:19 “Baptizing in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are all titles NOT NAMES. There are many countless number of “dads”, who are called “Father” every morning but this is a title, and every one of these Fathers have their own individual name. The Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is Jesus. See Isaiah 9: 6 the son shall be called, “The mighty God, the everlasting Father” etc. in John 5:43 Jesus said, “I am come in my Father’s name”
I would also like to draw your attention to Philippines Chapter 2 verses 9, 11 and 11.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth"” NOTE especially verse 11 which says that every tongue should confess to that name. Every tongue and every knee should confess that Jesus is Lord and His NAME, which is Jesus Christ, is the name above every name.
We know that we are now living in a day for the preparation where the True Body of Christ is coming together. All the other denominational people that will against such teaching.
 
 [Column 4.]
Whom the Lord loves he will correct if we are open for His truth of His word. The True Body of Christ will be corrected and will except all truths that are in HIS word in the Bible. But those whom don’t care weather they are in the bride or not will believe fables and follow after the traditions of MEN. We will show we are true children of God when we allow correction, this is the love sign.
If you take time to look over these scriptures and pray about them as you read, certainly the Lord will reveal HIS word to us all. It is essential that we make sure our lives are lived in full obedience to the Word.
