7 Believe Not just believing thing heard is true. Must believe Jesus is Lord. Lk. 6:46Will not doubt or question His will.Hear lessons on faithful service but do nothing about it - nothing changes!Acts 27
8 Repentance A "change of mind and will". Some baptized who haven't repented!Some even deny necessity of doing it!Example: Some guilty of adulterous marriages are being told it’s OK!
9 Confession This is a commitment. Acknowledging Him as Lord/Ruler. Romans 10:9,101 Peter 3:15 (ASV)Galatians 2:20
10 BaptismThough many reject baptism, this may be the only one of the "five steps" some have obeyed.Being a Christian is more than just outwardly conforming to certain acts.
