Question: I have heard both forms used in baptism. What I would like to know is what do you think when a person uses both forms together? I baptize you in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost and that Name is Jesus for the remission of sin. In His death His burial and in His resurrection from the grave, born to walk in newness of life.

Answer: It strikes me as something a person would say who isn't really sure about the truth. The part about the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is superfluous. There is but one name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. Jesus is all we need to say. It's all in Him!
