Jesus encouraged us to believe in the gospel, with repentance, and call on His name in water baptism to be saved, not condemned. For example, He commanded His disciples to: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who [1] has believed and [2] has been baptized shall [3] be saved, but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned” (Mk 16:15, 16). They were commanded to water baptize those who believed in the gospel Jesus Christ, meaning those who believed that Christ died for their sins, was buried, and raised from the dead on the third day (Paul said the gospel essentially is the DBR of Christ for our sins / SEE 1 Cor 15:1, 3, 4). They were not instructed to baptize unbelievers.

And so we can see that when we have believed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and prove it by repenting and being water baptized in the name of the Lord, we will not be condemned by God. Instead we will be saved. We will not go to hell. We will not receive God’s anger. We will not receive His WRATH for our sins (Jesus received God’s wrath for our sins on His cross). Instead we will receive God’s GRACE. He will favor us for repenting and believing in the gospel of His Son, in His DBR for our sins. We will receive a pardon from God, the Judge of all men. We will receive the forgiveness of our sins. We will receive the hope of going to heaven some day to be with Him. If we truly repent of our sins, we will be saved from them (SEE Lk 24:47). We cannot continue in sin and still be saved. We must separate ourselves from our sins. We must repent.

But is water baptism sprinkling, pouring, or immersion? When you complete this quiz, you will know the answer to these questions and more. Now if you believe in Jesus Christ, if you believe that He is the Son of God, if you believe that He died for our sins, if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day (Ro 10:9), then I encourage you to find out what water baptism truly means. Then you can truly be baptized to be saved. But someone will say, “We do not need to be baptized to be saved. We are saved by grace, not baptism”. I say, “Doesn’t God’s grace [meaning His favor] include baptism?” Think about it. Doesn’t God favor baptism? Surely He does not wrath it, which is the opposite of His grace. Rick David
