"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 2:38). The apostolic church has been baptizing converts in the name of Jesus Christ for over nineteen hundred years, according to Acts 2:38 and the other passages of Scripture pertaining to water baptism. There has always been a church down through the centuries that has refused to compromise the truth. (Read Romans 11:5.) And although the apostolic church was scattered, especially after the Roman Catholic Church became the state sponsored church in the fourth century, there have always been assemblies of Jesus Name Pentecostals worshiping somewhere on the planet. Perhaps they were hidden in the mountains of the Levant or somewhere in the backwoods of Eastern Europe. Rest assured, they were there, preaching Acts 2:38 and the apostolic message. This is borne out in our review of history. On the birthday of the church, Peter preached the first sermon, and in Acts 2:38 he gave the New Testament plan of salvation as he had been carefully instructed by Jesus: 1. Repent of all your sins. 2. Be baptized by immersion in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of your sins. 3. Receive the heaven sent gift of the Holy Ghost. We note that in Acts 2:38 (as in Acts 8:16; 10:48; 19:5) the saving name to be used in water baptism is Jesus. No verse of Scripture says the name must be pronounced or written in Hebrew, but it is sufficient to invoke that name in the language of the people. In the New Testament, the apostolic writers recorded that name in Greek. G. B. Rossi, in 1868, wrote that in the catacombs a representation of Peter was found, which shows him striking a rock, out of which flow waters of cleansing "through baptism in the name of Jesus Christ"...
