"Theology of Baptism" by Johnny Wong [LQ]

Retention is a serious issue in the SDA church today. There are two main reasons for the poor retention - a) pre-mature baptisms and b) lack of discipleship. In this session we look at the Biblical model and process to understand the criteria and meaning of baptism. With this foundation, church boards can make better decisions regarding baptismal candidates.
