The Meaning of Baptism (Romans 6:1-5)

Jason Roddy, June 23, 2013
Part of the The Sacrament of Baptism series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Understanding the precise meaning of baptism helps us to understand how we are to think about, profit spiritually from, and administer correctly this important sacrament.
