So if you’re a new Christian, or you’ve ever just wondered why it’s so important, how it works, when to get baptised and by whom, this booklet will help you to understand and action this significant step of obedience from a Biblical perspective.  This booklet is for beginners, backsliders and the bewildered with questions about God’s purpose for water baptism, and how to take this crucial step of obedience.


 

Die Basiese Beginsels van Waterdoop

‘n kardinale stap van gehoorsaamheid

Die waterdoop is ongelooflik belangrik!

As jy jou Bybel sou optel en deur die Nuwe Testament lees, sou jy gou opmerk presies hóé belangrik God die doop ag. Dat ons as gelowiges dit dus as net so belangrik moet ag, behoort vanselfsprekend te wees.

Die kans is egter goed day jy baie vrae het. Hoekom is die doop nou juis so belangrik? Hoe weet ek wanneer ek my moet laat doop? Wie kan my doo pen presies hoe wek dit? Die doel van hierdier boekie is om jou die belang van hierdie stap in jou geloofsreis te help verstaan, hetsy jy onlangs gelowig geword het, of reeds ‘n lang pad met die Here stap.
