TRUTH FOR TODAY
Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist
IN THE NAME OF JESUS 
In the name of Jesus, people are baptized (immersed) for the remission of sin. When asked what to do about their sins, Peter told those on Pentecost, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” This is not surprising because Jesus said before He left earth for heaven, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16). It is by the authority and power of Jesus that people are to be baptized for the remission of their sins.
