About 30 years after Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection, and ascension, Paul wrote this to the church in Ephesus:

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
Ephesians 4:4-6


This study will address the One baptism of Ephesians 4:5.

Several baptisms are mentioned in the New Testament:

The baptism unto Moses

The baptism of Jesus “for righteousness sake”

The baptism of fire

The baptism of suffering

The baptism of John

The baptism of the Holy Spirit

The baptism in water for the remission of sins

To help me study the subject of the “One Baptism” mentioned in Ephesians 4:5, I relied on the Gospel Advocate Commentaries, Burton Coffman Commentary, Thayer Dictionary, and Vines Dictionary.
