Is Baptism Essential?

I would say, yes,  that baptism is essential to salvation and the scriptures teach such. But if you are not convinced I urge you to open your bible, click on the below link and listen to an excellent sermon on the subject. For a quick reference on what the bible teaches see the following: https://livingthegodlylife.com/the-steps-that-lead-to-eternal-salvation/. For the sermon click the following:  https://lakelandhillschurchofchrist.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/8-16-15-sun-pm-is-baptism-essential.mp3. Think long, hard and deeply on this and consult your bible for the proper course. Nothing in your life could be more important.
