HIS DEATH PAYS THE PRICE FOR ALL

Pentecost to Judgment, One Has To:
1) HEAR PREACHING CONCERNING CHRIST
2) BELIEVE IT
3) CONFESS, WILLINGNESS TO REPENT
4) ENTER THE WATERS OF BAPTISM
       ~ AND RISE A NEW PERSON IN CHRIST
These are the integral steps called for from GOD
~ to become a Christian - they can not be circumvented.


Four types of baptism in the New Testament:
1. BAPTISM OF JOHN ~ call to repentance
2. FIRE BAPTISM ~ for those that refuse Christ
3. HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM ~ poured out on people
4. THE GREAT COMMISION ~ preach, teach, baptize
The Catholic Church teaches

MISCONCEPTIONS:
● Believe baptism is important but not necessary
● Baptism is necessary because our faith is not strong enough
WHAT JESUS THOUGHT ABOUT BAPTISM:
1. Jesus did it
2. Jesus taught it
3. Jesus wants us to do it
First Century Christians Believed:
1. They were sinners
2. In the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus
3. In the Lordship of Jesus
4. They believed faith (that included baptism) saves
BROKEN OR INEFFECTIVE BAPTISMS:
1. Being baptized as a baby
2. Being baptized without changing
3. Being baptized without faith
WILL NOT SAVE YOU:
Being a Devout Man
Fear God
Give Generously
Pray to God Always
Have a Vision

Showing reverence is not the same as wanting God.

1. Believe Him
2. Repent to Him
3. Courage to Announce Him
4. Faithful in Baptism
Our Savior From Sin = His Sacrifice on the Cross
A Way to be Forgiven = The Good News
