Conversion and Baptism

Sunday we discussed baptism. One point I did not mention is that in every clear example of conversion in the book of
Acts, baptism is explicitly included. I felt it might be useful for you to have a compilation of the conversions for easy
Acts 2:38 – On the day of Pentecost, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, for the forgiveness of your sin and you

36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said,
“Look, here is water. Why shouldn’t I be baptized?” 38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the
eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.
Acts 9:17–18 – Saul/Paul – “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—

31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your

the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized.
