Salvation – What is it?

Salvation is the saving of our lives.  To be saved, we must be baptized into the name of Jesus Christ with knowledge of the truth and faith.  When Jesus Returns the baptized will be resurrected from the dead, if found acceptable by God at the judgement seat will be given eternal life.  Man in death is unconscious in the grave and without baptism will never come out of the grave.

Salvation – not guaranteed (notice the “ifs” in many of these verses)
