What kind of conversion does God accept?

  • A sincere search after the truth will lead you to the following regarding conversion:

    • God has offered man salvation through Christ (Luke 19:10; Acts 4:12).
    • Followers of Jesus are commanded to teach this good news (gospel) to all nations (Matthew 28:18-20).
    • This gospel is “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16).
    • Faith comes by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17).
    • A sincere faith will lead a person to repent. Repentance includes turning away from sin and turning to the Lord for salvation (Luke 13:3, 5; 24:46-48; Acts 2:38; 17:30, 31).
    • You must take a public stand for the Lord. This is called confession of Christ (Matthew 10:32, 33; Romans 10:9, 10).
    • At this point every person who is being converted must be baptized (immersed) in water for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16). Baptism puts a person in Christ and in His church (Acts 2:41-47).

    Narindra Ramanankasaina I do acknowledge that water baptism is necessary, but not indispensable. Just look at the Good Thief. It's not linked with receiving the Holy Spirit, because the Apostles weren't baptized when they received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

    Ruth G Is not Baptizem the way we affirm our conversion telling the world that we belong to Christ?when Apostle Peter was still speaking the Holy Spirit come down on all who heard the message at Cornelius's house even before they were Baptized.
