What scriptural references clarify that baptism is necessary for eternal salvation?
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
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.
In your baptism, you are being buried with God and rise because
"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
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
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
