Plan of Salvation

1. Romans 10:17 (Hear the message)

2. Hebrews 11:6 (Believe the message)

3. Luke 13: 3 (Repent)

4. Romans 10:9 (Confess "Jesus is Lord" Refers to public

confession 1 Timothy 6:12)

5. Acts 2:38 (Get Baptized)

1 Peter 3:21

its your baptism that saves you. yes God's grace, and your

faith, plus baptism

The Practice of Baptism

Revelation 3:20 alot of people who don't believe in baptism use

this scripture

you cannot pray Jesus into your life. ( in all the conversion

stories in Acts, they don't say "they believed in their hearts and

they were saved.")

you need to understand the commitment before making it

Romans 10:13 i know people who don't believe in baptism use this

scripture as well, this is talking about israel coming back to God,

like someone who was with God but left, it was not talking about

the plan of salvation.

Acts 22:16 you are CALLED to be baptized.

Colossians 2:12

In your baptism, you are being buried with God and rise because

of faith.

Ezekiel 18:20

"Original Sin" belief that babies are born with eve's sin.

1 peter 3:21

people say that baptism doesn't save you, but by getting

baptized you are doing what God wants you to do

Ephesians 2:8

we are saved by God's grace. Formula: your faith + God's grace=


Romans 6:2-4 Remember this scripture, it informs you of what

happens when you get baptized.

1 Corinthians 1:17 i know people that use this scripture as well

to discredit baptism. paul explains about different beliefs and

divisions that were going on. This scripture does not say that

baptism is not important. it just says that that's not Paul's main

focus. This scripture gets taken out of context.

Jesus could forgive sins even while he was alive.

Matthew 9: 2-6

"Believer's Baptism" saved as an adult but no faith.

John 3: 5-8

you need to understand the word when you get baptized

Acts 2:38

what do you get from baptism?

1. the forgiveness of your sins

2. the gift of the holy spirit

1 Timothy 4:16 (watch your life and your doctrine closely)

watch your life: be careful what you do.

watch your doctrine: be careful what you believe

Mark 1616He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he

that believeth not shall be damned.John 33Except a man be born

again (Baptism?), he cannot see the kingdom of God.

There are no scriptural references that clarify that baptism is

necessary for salvation because salvation does not depend on

baptism. There have been many who have died before they could

receive the ordinance of baptism. One such proof was the

thief on the cross who believed on Christ and was received into

paradise that very day. Should a person be baptized? yes! Baptism

is an important step for a Christian. Please read I Peter

remarks under ANSWER are not my answer but somehow have been

attached to my understanding of baptism - busyasabee.
