ACTS 2:38
THE ORIGINAL NEW TESTAMENT
PLAN OF SALVATION


WHAT JESUS PROCLAIMED SALVATION WOULD BE:
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: and thatrepentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. (Luke 24:46-49)

WHAT PETER PREACHED SALVATION TO BE:
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, andbe baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Forthe promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:38-39)

WHY WAIT? OBEY ACTS 2:38!

STEP 1
HAVE FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR AND REPENT

Believe Jesus Christ is Lord and died for you.
Be sorry for your sins and recognize your need of the Savior as in Acts 3:19.
Determine to turn from sin and give your life completely to Him.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH:
Salvation itself. Believing is absolutely essential, but only the first step! See Acts 8:12-17 and 11:14-18.

STEP 2
BE BAPTIZED BY IMMERSION IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST

Be buried with Him by total immersion in water.
Have the saving name of Jesus Christ pronounced over you as in Acts 22:16.
Obtain remission of sins in baptism through obedience and faith in His name.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH:
Repeating the titles "Father-Son-Holy Ghost" sprinkling or pouring! See Acts 8:35-38 and 19:1-6.

STEP 3
RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM EVIDENCED BY TONGUES

Meet the conditions of repentance, faith, and obedience.
Believe God has promised it and that you can receive it as in Acts 2:4.
Know that tongues is the initial evidence of receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH:
Tongues as a prayer language or one of the optional gifts of the Spirit! See John 7:38-39 and Acts 10:44-48.
