The First Rancher on The Way of the Master Radio

Yes...our rancher friend, Dave, turned out to believe that salvation comes by baptism. He was a stickler on this point.

"Is water baptism essential to salvation?"

While we should preach that all men are commanded to repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38), adding any other requirement to salvation by grace becomes "works" in disguise. Even though numerous Scriptures speak of the importance of water baptism, adding anything to the work of the cross demeans the sacrifice of the Savior. It implies that His finished work wasn’t enough. But the Bible makes clear that we are saved by grace, and grace alone (Ephesians 2:8,9). This was taken from the Evidence Bible Bridge Logos Publishers. Click here to read the rest.

I heard this one. Thank you for the helpful links on baptism. It really makes a lot of sense. Thank God we are saved by grace through faith!
