Really???? Baptism is necessary for Salvation????
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
It is required to get baptized, yes.
It is good that we believe, but did Satan and the devils also believe? Then God's people must also obey. Satan does his own thing and does not obey God.
When a new believer becomes converted their first chance straightaway they seek baptism.
"Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John 3:5
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." Mark 16:16.
"One Lord, one faith, one baptism." Ephesians 4:5
Baptism is symbolic of the resurrection..
"Buried with him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead." Colossians 2:12
"Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.... knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." Romans 6:4-6
