Thank you all for your wonderful comments, may the good Lord bless you and yours in many ways.... I am saved by the saving grace of God through baptism over ten years now.. I am trying so hard to live faithfully till Christ returns. I know that my labour shall not be in vain... 1 Corinthians 15:58
Baptism is not a necessity for salvation.
What about the thief on the cross or someone who, in their dying breath asks forgiveness and accepts Jesus as their personal saviour?
What we learn from the saved thief on the cross is that we are all sinners in need of a Saviour, and no matter the number of our sins and no matter if we,
or the world, think our sins are minor or extreme, it is never too late to repent and accept the free gift of salvation
Baptism is the symbol of what has already occurred in the heart and life of one who has trusted Christ as their Saviour (Romans 6:3-5;Galatians 3:27;Colossians 2:12)
Salvation is as simple as this.
Admit your sinful state when compared to God's moral perfection.
This admission is called repentance toward God (Acts 20:21
Believe on Jesus Christ who died to pay your sin debt to God. He not only died as your substitute, He rose to life again as proof of God's satisfaction with His work. This is faith toward our Lord Jesus (Acts 20:21)
Completely finished - there is nothing else you need to do.
Salvation is a grace gift from God to all who will receive Christ.
Simply trust Him. When you do, God exchanges your sin for Christ's righteousness - forever!
