to the reader
ΒΑPΤΙΣΜΑΛΟΓΙΑ Or a TREATISE concerning BAPTISM
The First ASSERTION. The Baptism of John with Water, and the Baptism of Christ with the Spirit, were not one, but two, that is to say, Distinct Baptisms.
The Second Assertion. John's Baptism in or with Water, was a Figure or a Shadow of Christ's Baptism, in or with the Spirit, so thereby fulfilled and ended.
The Third Assertion. Christ's Baptism in or with the Spirit only, is the Baptism that is to continue in the Church to the End of the World.
The Fourth Assertion. Rantism, that is, Sprinkling of Infants, is a Case unpresidented in the Primitive times, an Irreptitious Custom, sprung up in the Night of Apostacy, after the Falling Away from the Primitive Order.
Of the Original and Progress of Paedo-baptism, rather Paedo∣rantism now, that is, Sprinkling of Infants.
A PREFACE to the READER.
A Testimony for the Evangelical Com∣munion, in the Bread of Life, in the Cup of Blessing.
