Religion: Is Baptism necessary for Salvation?

May 28, 2013


‘I’ve been told that I need to repent and be baptized in order to be saved. They showed me Acts 2:38 and said that was proof that baptism is necessary for salvation. Is that true?” This is the second time someone has asked me this question, so it deserves to be re-visited. We must be careful not to use a single verse to prove a doctrine, but to look at the Scripture as a whole. Throughout Scripture baptism is an act of obedience and a symbol of salvation; it is not a requirement for salvation. Baptism is the outward symbol of the inward change!
