I'm back!

Hey fans out there! Sorry I haven't posted in ages. Things have been kind of crazy, but I am hoping to get back to posting. Stay tuned for more in the near future!




    Who are those who are included in salvation? All men who believe and obey what the apostle Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost are saved. It does not make any difference what denominational name is written on the church building where you worship, if you obey the gospel preached by Peter, then, you are saved, you are a member of the Lord's church, you are part of the church of Christ, you a member of the body of Christ, you are a Christian.

    What did Peter preach?
    1. Peter preached that Jesus was a miracle worker. (Acts 2:22)
    2. Peter preached that Jesus was resurrected from the dead by God the Father.(Acts 2:24-35)
    3. Peter preached that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.(Acts 2:36)
    When the three thousand believe Peter, they asked "What shall we do?"(Acts 2:37)
    4. Peter told them to repent and be baptized in order to have their sins forgiven.(Acts 2:38)

    This is the same message Jesus preached. (Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved....)

    THE TERMS FOR PARDON ARE: Faith-John 3:16, Repentance-Acts 2:38, Confession-Romans 10:9-10, Baptism (immersion in water) 1 Peter 3:21

    All who meet the terms for pardon are saved regardless of the denominational name on the church building.

  2. I agree with you. By grace are he saved through grace, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast. I am a believer in Christ, and go to a Bible believing Baptist Church. I do not believe that baptism is necessary for salvation, but a step of obedience taken after salvation. Thank you for sharing, and I will definitely look at your blog!

  3. Steve, I looked at your blog, and I see that you are a firm believer in the necessity of baptism for salvation. I just want to ask you a question..."what about the thief on the cross? He was not baptized, yet Christ said "today you will be with me in paradise". If baptism was absolutely necessary for salvation, then why would Christ give that man false hope? I love you and respect your beliefs in Christ, and I do not doubt that you are a sincere believer, I just thought I would state my belief in that area. By the way, I have been baptized by immersion at my church at the age of 8 after being saved from my sins at the age of 4. I felt God's work in my life before I was baptized, and I do not doubt that I was saved those years before I was baptized.
