Prerequisite to Baptism


Product may vary slightly from image representation.
To be baptized into the Christian today, one must make a confessional oath to observe its doctinal beliefs. In the early church, one had to accept Jesus as the promised Christ. Jews and proselytes understood through whom the Christ would come. Gentiles, having no knowledge of the background of the Jewish religion, brought in their own heathen traditions to form a false background of Jesus' birth.
