1 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach About Conversion?

2 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 1. God gives us a responsibility  Jesus said “Go…”  This commission continues today (2 Tim. 2:2)  There is a time to say “Come…” (Rev. 22:17), but we must also make time to “Go…” (Lk. 14:21-23; Acts 8:4)  We may not be GROWING because we are not GOING!

3 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 2. God wants all mankind to be saved  The gospel is to go into “all the world” … “to the whole creation”  All mankind needs saving (Rom. 3:23)  God wants all saved (1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9)  Evangelism must be done at home and abroad

4 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 3. Preaching is important  “Go … preach”  Preaching comes before / after salvation (Rom. 1:15-16; 10:9-10)  No entertainment or stand-up comedy

5 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 4. There is only one true gospel  “Go … preach the gospel”  Only the one gospel of Jesus Christ saves (Gal. 1:6-9; Eph. 4:4-6)  Not a latter-day gospel or gospel of health and wealth

6 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 5. Belief (faith) in the truth saves  “He that believes…”  Only belief in the truth (the gospel) saves (Eph. 1:13; Jn. 17:17)  Belief of error will condemn (2 Thess. 2:10-12)

7 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 6. Each one must have is own belief (faith) to be saved  “He that believes…”  The one saved is the same one who believes and is baptised; belief must be personal  No proxy salvation (Catholicism, Mormonism)

8 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 7. Belief (faith) always comes before baptism and salvation  “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved…”  God’s order: belief, baptism, salvation (Acts 18:8)  Man’s order: baptism, salvation, faith

9 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 8. Belief (faith) only does not save  “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved…”  True Bible belief (faith) acts and obeys (Mk. 1:15; 2:5)  Faith only is dead (Jas. 2:24-26)

10 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 9. Baptism comes before salvation  “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved…”  Baptism is necessary for salvation; it washes away sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Rom. 6:3-4; 1 Pet. 3:21)  Man’s order: faith only, salvation, baptism (to show others you are already saved)

11 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 10. Baptism alone does not save  “He that believes and is baptized shall be saved…”  Baptism is a work of God (Mt. 3:15; Lk. 7:30) and a work of faith  Many falsely accuse of believing in “water salvation”

12 What Does Mark 16:15-16 Teach? 11. Disbelief (disobedience) alone will condemn  “But he that disbelieves shall be condemned”  Disbelief (disobedience) alone will condemn one to hell (Jn. 3:18)  Many believe God will not condemn anyone
