As we look at this wonderful subject and truth, it is very important that we hear the word of God with faith. The Bible says "faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." If we are to receive all that the Scriptures show us that we can receive through this wonderful truth then we must agree with the Word of God. As we determine to agree with God's Word, our hearts are filled we faith which enables us to receive all that God has for us.
The Primary Condition for Water Baptism.
What is the primary condition for being water baptized and when should it happen in a Christian’s life?
We find in Scriptures there is really only one condition.
You Must Be Saved! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ!
Acts 8:38 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, ‘See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”
Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”
Notice Philip’s response is, “If you believe with all your heart.” What does it mean to believe with all of your heart? The Bible says in the Book of James, “the demons even believe and tremble.” So, we want to make sure we are believing with all of our hearts. God doesn’t want just some of our heart, He wants it all.
