Is washing with water the outward sign in baptism? Yes: I am come baptizing with water, John 1:31. Is that well done by sprinkling? Yes: For so shall he sprinkle many nations, Isa. 52:15, Ezek. 30:25. Is that sign significant? Yes: If ye are washed, ye are sanctified, ye are justified, 1 Cor. 6:11. But is the outward sign alone sufficient? No: Baptism saves us, not as it is the putting away the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience towards God, 1 Pet. 3:21.
