DR. MAX D. YOUNCE

” See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” –Acts 8:36-37

Nowhere in the Bible was anyone ever baptized; until after they were saved!ii
