    Paul says to work on your salvation with fear and trembling, meaning that it should show in your life. You should be different inside and out, people should see the fruits of the spirit of God in you. Love, kindness, joy, etc...

    The bible says not only do you have to believe in Jesus you have to ask and accept him into your heart for your salvation. Remember even the devil himself believes in God and Jesus yet he is doomed to Hell.

    Baptism by water is taught in the scriptures as an outward expression of an inward repentance and belief in Jesus Christ. When one believes on Jesus Christ, Jesus Himself baptizes that person with the Holy Ghost which is what He called being "born-again" and is what further scripture calls "regeneration".

    But scripture doesn't say that you have have a baptism to enter heaven.

    john 3:3-5says you must be born again of water and of the spirit to enter into the kingdom of God

    Finding inner peace despite all the negative forces around you. That could be a great lesson worthy of salvation. =] much love

    Actually, none of us are worthy of salvation. Jesus alone was worthy for He lived a perfect sinless life and then gave that life as a sacrifice for eternal life for all who will trust and obey His loving words.

    A perfect sinless life is not possible, for through our mistakes is how we learn. Drop the religon, and what you're left with is the universe, and everything..

    Receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour is what Jesus called being "born-again". This act of God alone is what places a person in the Kingdom of God as a child of God. From this point then a new child of God will learn and display the characteristics of Jesus Christ. Never perfect but always striving to be holy as God is holy.

    what about baptism

    BAPTISM IS JUST TELLING THE WORLD THAT YOUR NOT ASHAMED OF BEING A CHRISTIAN
