Knowledge Needed for Salvation

1.     Some hesitate to become Christians because they don’t know enough

2.     Must I understand everything before being baptized?

3.     In Acts – every conversion – heard one sermon, one time


There are some things we MUST know:

1.     To Obey the Gospel

b.     Repent from our sins

c.     Baptism

                                                    i.     Burial in water

                                                   ii.     Figure of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ

                                                 iii.     Purpose – for the forgiveness of sins

2.     Learn soon after baptism

a.     Worship

                                                    i.     Sunday, 1st day of the week

                                                   ii.     Communion, sing, pray, give, study

b.     Moral life – we must abandon sin

c.     Work of a Christian

3.     What if I die before learning it all?

a.     Everyone does – Philippians 3:12-13

b.     Real question – Did you live by what you did learn?

c.     God knows the intent of the heart – Hebrews 4:12
