11 The Evidence  Mark 16:16 – to be saved

12 Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Mark 16:16 “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

13 Mark 16:16 Believe & Baptized – Saved Believe – Saved & Baptized Which statement do you believe?

15 Mark 16:16 “He that believeth in Ford Motor Company and is baptized in our pool, shall receive a new Ford.” What must one do to get a new ford? Could one argue: “I believe – give me the Ford, and then I’ll be baptized”?

16 The Evidence  Mark 16:16 – to be saved  Acts 2:38 – for the remission of sins

17 Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

18 Acts 2:38 “…Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,…” Because of In Order To Repent Be Baptized AND Repentance & Baptism Go In The Same Direction!

19 Acts 2:38 Matt. 26:28 – Blood shed for the remission of sins (eis aphesin hamartion) Acts 2:38 – Repent & Bapt. for the remission of sins (eis aphesin hamartion) Same expression in both English & Greek

22 1 Peter 3:21 Baptism doth NOW save us Baptism doth NOT save us Which statement do you believe?

23 1 Peter 3:21 Eight Souls Saved By Water Baptism doth also now save us From The Old To The New Old World Old Life (sin) New World New Life (saved)

24 The Evidence  Mark 16:16 – to be saved  Acts 2:38 – for the remission of sins  1 Pet. 3:21 – saves us  Gal. 3:26-27 – baptized into Christ

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.” Galatians 3:26-27 “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

32 Why we Believe that Baptism is Essential to Salvation I. T TT The Question II. T TT The Evidence III. T TT The Objections

33 The Objections Saved by faith If faith eliminates baptism – it eliminates repentance Can’t mean “faith alone” (Jas. 2:24) Many who believed but not saved (Jas. 2:19; John 8) Jesus said, “…believeth and is baptized…” (Mk 16:16)

34 The Objections Saved by faith Saved by the blood If blood eliminates baptism – it eliminates faith!

35 The Objections Saved by faith Saved by the blood Thief on the cross It is not said that the thief repented. Thief lived and died under OT (Heb. 9:16-17) Under the NT Jesus commands: (Mark 16:16)

36 The Objections Saved by faith Saved by the blood Thief on the cross Cornelius saved without it Does not say “and is not baptized”
