 46A.  The Procedure Set By Christ


It is not enough that man subscribes to any teaching on salvation. 
  • First - He has to make sure that the teaching should be what is prescribed by God as written in the Holy Bible. 
  • Second - He has to qualify whether the means of saving his soul is what Christ teaches, otherwise, he is not after saving his soul but receiving the punishment of God. 



On the day of the Pentecost, when the Jews heard the teachings of Apostle Peter about Jesus Christ. The Jews were touched by the message of the teachings.  Their hearts were filled with shame on how they had previously mocked Christ and His teachings and committed transgressions against God.  So, the Jews, asked the Apostles on what to do in their earnest desire not to displease God anymore and for God to spare them from His anger come Judgment Day.
In Acts 2:37, this is written:

Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?'' (NKJV)

 46A.1   What did Apostle Peter said to those who ask him, "What shall we do to be saved"?

In Acts 2:38, Peter said to them:

Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)

"Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins".

46A.2   Who were baptized on that day by the Apostles and why were they baptized?

In Acts 2:41, this is written:

Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day. (NAB)

The same verse in another version of the Bible:

Those, therefore, who joyfully welcomed his Message were baptized; and on that one day about three thousand persons were added to them; (WNT)

Those who accepted or joyfully welcomed the message from God were baptized.


Based on the above event, what was the procedure followed by the Apostles, for men to be to be saved?

1st: - The Apostles preached the Message of God to the people.
2nd: - The people accepted or joyfully welcomed the Message.
3rd: - The people repented and,
4th: - They were baptized by the Apostles.

Note: The above steps will be explained further in the succeeding topics.
