The Apostle Paul makes clear distinction that the baptism correlates to the death of Christ, burial of Christ, and resurrection of Christ. It also points to the nature of our own death, burial, and eventual resurrection (whether it is in the First Resurrection or the Second Resurrection). Therefore, we see that this is a covenant relationship between us and Christ. We are unified through baptism. We are also required to walk in the newness of life as our old self is crucified with Christ. This is what Christian Apologists, like Holding, do not fully comprehend. Baptism was an integral part of Jesus Christ’s ministry and an important factor related to the ordinance being practiced within the First Century Christian Church. In fact, Paul writes to the Ephesians that there is One Lord, One Faith, and ONE BAPTISM.
