I Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
No passage of scripture puts it more eloquently than that. That right-minded people can read that passage of scripture and still claim that baptism is not essential for salvation is beyond me.
The reason this topic is top of mind is because my daughter just obeyed the Gospel and was baptized into Christ. I haven't been this happy since I was baptized myself nearly 34 years ago.
I implore everyone that reads this to make sure you are truly saved. While we are saved by grace through faith, the fruition of that is through water baptism as demonstrated over and over again in the book of Acts.
If you merely accepted Christ, and were baptized as formality, please examine that and consider being baptized for the remission of your sins. There is a lot of snake oil in the religious world, and faith only is nothing but snake oil. Don't let Satan cause you to be lost forever.
