“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:40 NKJV). After His resurrection, Jesus added His baptism to belief: “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16 NKJV). Paul wrote to the Galatians: “But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man” (Galatians 1:11 NKJV), and added: “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ” (Galatians 3:26-27 NKJV). According to Jesus, none are saved before baptism, and according to Paul, none are children of God before being “baptized into Christ.” Are you “in Christ?”
