"Baptism with water is the sign and seal of baptism with the Spirit,
as much as it is of the forgiveness of sins. Water-baptism is the
initiatory Christian rite, because Spirit-baptism is the initiatory
Christian experience."
- John Stott

"After many painful trials, which none can know, but those who are
taught to relinquish a system in which they had been educated, I
settled down in the full persuasion, that the immersion of a
professing believer in Christ is the only Christian baptism."
- Adoniram Judson, missionary.

"I am obliged to take God´s Word as I find it, and here I read these
words of our Lord Jesus Christ, `He that believeth and is baptized
shall be saved.´ `Do not dwell on the baptism,´ says one; `leave
that out.´ That is what you say, my dear Sir; I cannot see your
face, but I do not believe that you are my master. My Master is
the Lord who taught holy men to write this Book, and I can only
go by the Book; the Book has the baptism in it, so I must stick
to the truth as it is in the Book: `He that believeth and is baptized
shall be saved.´"
-Charles Spurgeon on Mark 16:16.

"Do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ
Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried
with Him through baptism into death."
-Romans 6:3-4, NKJV.

"Baptism sets forth the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ,
and our participation therein... We are buried with him in baptism
unto death..."
-Charles Spurgeon.
