Baptized for Salvation - A Supplement

Baptized for Salvation - A Supplement

 Answering the false doctrines of men which separate baptism from salvation...

 Can I be Saved w/o Baptism?

  • Saved      w/o faith? "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved" (Mk16:16 /      Acts3:26,27)
  • Saved      w/o repentance? "Repent and be baptized..." (Acts2:38)
  • Saved      w/o being a disciple? "make disciples of all nations, baptizing      them" (Mt28:19)
  • Saved      w/o being IN - joined to Christ? "baptized into Christ      Jesus" (Rom6:3) / "baptized into Christ have put on Christ"      (Gal3:27)
  • Saved      w/o being united in His death & resurrection? "baptized into his      death" / "raised .... to walk in newness of life" (Rom6:3,4)
  • Saved      w/o sins being put away? "putting off the body of the flesh" /      "raised with him" / "made alive together with      him, having forgiven us all our trespasses" (Col2:11-13)?

 Saved by...

  • Jesus: John 3:17 "the world might be saved through him."      / Acts 15:11 "we will be      saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus." / Rom 5:9 "justified by his blood... shall we be      saved by him."
  • His      Word: John 5:34     "I say these things so that you may be saved." / Acts 11:14 "(Peter) will declare to you a message      by which you will be saved."
  • Faith      in Jesus: Acts 16:31     "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved..."
  • And      Confession: Rom_10:10 "For with the heart one believes and is      justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved."
  • Baptism:      1Pet 3:21     "Baptism... now saves you."

 AT WHAT POINT (in Action & in time) Am I Saved?

  • WHEN am I joined to      Christ? For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.      (Gal 3:27 ESV)
  • WHEN do I rise to walk in      new life? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order      that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,      we too might walk in newness of life. (Rom 6:4 ESV)
  • WHEN are sins washed away?     We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that,      just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too      might walk in newness of life. (Rom 6:4 ESV)

You Don't Have to Be Baptized

 What Hinders ME from being Baptized?

  • The      doctrines of men -- false teaching of religious denominations.
  • Stubborn Ways      -- unwilling to give up worldly living and submit to Christ.
  • Lack      of faith -- to believe He will keep His promise to Forgive & Restore...

 Don't let any device of the devil come between you and your eternal deliverance!

"But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women."
"Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus."
And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
"And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized."
"And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord."


He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
"And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John." "But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him."
