Salvation Is Conditional Upon Belief PLUS

Calvinists say the salvation provided freely by the death of Christ is unconditional on our part, but the Bible teaches …

Belief is an Essential Condition of Salvation

John 8:24 if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins

Acts 10:43 whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins

Romans 3:26 the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus

Repentance is a Condition of Salvation

Luke 13:3 … Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out

Baptism is an Essential Condition of Salvation

Mark 16:16a He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved

Acts 2:38 Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 22:16 arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord

I Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us

Obedience is a Condition of Salvation
