Do you need baptism to be saved?

I believe in Jesus, but won’t be baptised until Sunday.  If I wasn’t being baptised, would I go to hell?

    Yes baptism is necessary to be saved. This is the tradition of the church since the beginning and it is writting in the gospel Mark 16,16.

    It takes faith in jesus and baptism. I guess some people wont be able to get baptized even though they believe and confess jesus in that way God is merciful and understand. If those people die unexpectdly without being baptized  we say in catholic their is a baptism of desire in that case they will be saved and  go to heaven

    The Bible clearly teaches that if you want to serve God, you should get baptized.

    Jesus told his followers: “Make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them.” (Matthew 28:19) Jesus also set the example by getting baptized himself.

    He was completely immersed in water, not just sprinkled with water on his head. (Matthew 3:16) Today when a Christian is baptized, he must also be completely immersed, or dipped, in water..

    Baptism is a requirement for Christians, and it is an essential step to gaining salvation. Your baptism symbolizes your dedication. It is a solemn promise that you made to God to love him and to put his will above everything else.

    1 Corinthians 1:17 makes it clear that water baptism cannot be added to getting into heaven.  So if you add water baptism or any works to getting into heaven, then you will go to hell.  Here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, or not. The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell.


    Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing on Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven

    Water only gets you wet.   BAPTIZE in FIRE/WORD(GOSPEL teaching of Jesus only), NOT water.

    No baptism is not necessary in salvation. Read Romans 10:9-13, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and Ephesians 2:8-9.

    ELI : Why are you going to Mark for salvation today ? Mark is dispensationally the Old Testament. The Church is supposed to follow Paul!
