Strong's  baptizo means [wash] read Eph. 5:26
"And I knew him not: but he that sent me to [baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, the same is He which [baptizeth][baptizo][to wash] with the Holy Spirit." John 1:33
Does one get literaly wet by water by the Holy Spirit? No! He is [washed] by the Holy Spirit not by any work of man. almost in every case it means to [wash] and we know that it is the word that washes by the Spirit, Eph. 5:26
Saban, you gave me no proof of what you said here at all in the literal Greek I gave you two reference in the Greek they both mean to [wash] found also in, The Englishman's Greek concordance.
Where does it state in what Greek translation saying,[immersion?]
Saban, you have to do a word study when you look in the Greek and see how God uses this word. You see this is what your church is teaching but I am sorry it will not [wash] with the Greek rendering. Thank you. Gary.
Lets begin with your 1st paragraph. Baptizo is defined as immersion. How did you miss that??
