Everyone in the Bible (and in the first century) got baptized in the name of Jesus. (An important video I recorded yesterday) If we take time to look at what the scripture and history is saying about baptism we will see that the correct way to baptize is like they did in the early church : In the name of Jesus. Nobody in the first century got baptized in the name of the father, son and Holy Spirit like many do today sadly. See more in this video and remember to look into this yourself. Acts 2:38," Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 8:16, "For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus." Acts 10:48, "And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days." Acts 19:5, "When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus." Acts 22:16, 'And now why do you delay? Arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.’ Britannica Encyclopedia, 11th Edition, Volume 3, page 365 – Baptism was changed from the name of Jesus to words Father, Son & Holy Ghost in 2nd Century. Canney Encyclopedia of Religion, page 53 – The early church baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus until the second century. Hastings Encyclopedia of Religion, Volume 2 – Christian baptism was administered using the words, "in the name of Jesus." page 377. Baptism was always in the name of Jesus until time of Justin Martyr, page 389. Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume 2, page 263 – Here the authors acknowledged that the baptismal formula was changed by their church.
