Baptism & Communion Are Important But They Do Not Get You To Heaven
-WATER BAPTISM AND COMMUNION ARE ORDINANCES TO BE OBSERVED BY THE CHURCH DURING THE PRESENT AGE.
-THEY ARE NOT, HOWEVER, TO BE CONFUSED WITH OR REGARDED AS A MEANS OF SALVATION.
-THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS RESURRECTION PROVIDE THE ONLY GROUNDS FOR JUSTIFICATION AND SALVATION.
-Acts 10:17 Peter has a vision. -Acts 10:24 Peter goes to Caesarea. -Acts 10:34 Peter preaches Jesus to them and they not only get saved but filled with the Holy Ghost.
-Acts 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God.
Then Peter answered, 47 "Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?" 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord.
-1cor 11:27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
-1cor11:23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 25In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." 26For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes.
Freedom, Peace, and Hope in a Dark World!
