We Should Be Baptized Only in the Name of Jesus

We should be baptized ONLY in the name of Jesus !

Acts 2:38 

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

Acts 8:12 “

But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.”

Acts 8:16 

“For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Acts 10:48 

“And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”

Acts 19:5 

“When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

Acts 22:16 

“And now why tarriest you ? arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.”

Romans 6:3 

“Know you not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death ?”

1 Corinthians 1:13 

“Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” 


Galatians 3:27 

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

“The historical riddle is not solved by Matthew 28:19, since, according to a wide scholarly consensus, it is not an authentic saying of Jesus, not even an elaboration of a Jesus-saying on baptism.” 

— (Anchor Bible Dictionary, Vol. 1, 1992, p. 585)

Catholic Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now pope Benedict XVI) makes this confession as to the origin of the chief Trinity text of Matthew 28:19 saying: "The basic form of our (Matthew 28:19 Trinitarian) profession of faith took shape during the course of the second and third centuries in connection with the ceremony of baptism. 

So far as its place of origin is concerned, the text (Matthew 28:19) came from the city of Rome. The Trinity baptism and text of Matthew 28:19 therefore did not originate from the original Church that started in Jerusalem around 33 A.D. It was rather, as the evidence proves, a later invention of Roman Catholicism completely fabricated. 

Very few know about these historical facts.” 


The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, page 263:

“The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century.”

Does Matthew 28:19 prove a Trinity ?
