When an earthquake stuck the ancient city of Philippi it rocked more than the foundations of the jail where Paul and Silas were held; it shook the heart of the jailer and opened the door for the apostle to share the gospel with him and his family. The jail keeper anxiously asked Paul and Silas “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”. How Paul answered the question and how the jailer responded to his answer tells us what it truly means to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. As we continue our series ‘Jesus Saves’, examining the conversion accounts in the Book of Acts, we see how this man and his house came to saving faith in Christ and how God formed a wonderful church in the city of Philippi. We also explore the question: do the baptisms of all in the jailer’s household justify the doctrine of infant baptism?
