Description: Yes or No = Does A Person Need To Be Baptized?
A number of people want just a quick answer to their question about the Scripture, the things of God, or this life. Please ask me any question you may have that can be answered with a simple "Yes" or "No" and I will answer it for you and provide Scripture that confirms my answer. I pray that this is a blessing for you.
Brother Hicks Speaking: Here is a question from savana906, “When a person is born again in Jesus Christ do they need to be baptized? God bless you.”
Those who are truly saved will obey the Lord Jesus in all things, including water baptism. Baptism does not save, but a saved person will be baptized. A person refusing to be baptized does not truly believe. Jesus said it like this:
“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned.” - Mark 16:16
And we are his witnesses of these things: and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. – Acts 5:32
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him – Hebrews 5:9
