Baptism, along with the other commands of the gospel such as faith, repentance, and confessing Jesus Christ as the Son of the living God is essential and necessary for salvation.

 

The word baptism means to dip repeatedly, to immerse, or to submerge completely. In the scripture baptism is described as a burial - Colossians 2:12

 

THE PURPOSE OF BAPTISM IS TO REMIT THE SINS OF THE PENITENT SINNER

 

If you go outside the borders of the Lordís church, you will find the majority of denominations teach baptism is an "outward profession of your faith in Christ", or an "outward sign of an inward grace", and is not necessary for your salvation. This is a great deception of the devil that will leave many lost at the Day of Judgment - 1 Peter 5:8

 

The Inspired Word of God clearly teaches baptism is one of the components of Christian faith which one must comply with to be saved. There are many examples showing that being baptized is an essential part of salvation.

 

Jesus gives us our marching orders to preach the gospel to every creature which includes faith and baptism - Mark 16:15-16

 

We find Peter and the Apostles implementing what Jesus commanded in Acts 2:38, commanding that people, "repent, and be baptized... in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins"

 

What did Ananias tell Saul to do to wash away his sins?  "arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord" - Acts 22:16

 

THE BIBLE TEACHES THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS REQUIRED TO WASH US OF OUR SINS

 

In Revelation 1:5, the Spirit of God affirms it is Jesus blood which washes our sins away. Therefore, one must come in contact with Jesus death to contact the blood of Jesus, since His blood was shed in His death - Romans 6:3-6

 

Are you Saved?  Why not come to obedience today?  Accept the Salvation that God offers:  Hear - Believe - Repent - Confess - Be Baptized.
