Question 29 - According to the Bible, God's holy word, how am I to be saved?
You must hear.
"Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ."
You must believe.
"I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins."
You must repent.
"In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead."
You must confess.
"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved...for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved'."
You must be baptized.
"And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name."
Tomorrow's question - Is baptism optional?
