Does Water Baptism Save?

A Biblical Refutation of Baptismal Regeneration




1. The Bible teaches that to be saved a person must “BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.”

2. The Bible teaches throughout the New Testament that FAITH and FAITH ALONE is necessary for salvation.

3. EPHESIANS 2:8-9 is a passage which God has given to answer this key question: HOW IS A PERSON SAVED? This important doctrinal verse says nothing about water baptism.


4. Water baptism is a WORK (something that man does to please God), and yet the Bible teaches again and again that a person is not saved by works.

5. When is a person saved? Is a person saved at the moment he believes on the Lord Jesus Christ or is a person saved the moment he is baptized in water?


6.  Is water baptism essential?


7.   If a person is not baptized in water, is he saved?
