Do We Need Baptism For Salvation?
  • Adam prophesied of the coming of Christ, our Lord and Alahayim, in the flesh and how he would turn us into a faithful people loving his law and we would be purified  by water from our sins: 

The Lives of Adam and Eve 29

And thereafter Alahayim will dwell with men on earth in visible form; and then righteousness will begin to shine. And the house of Alahayim will be honored in the age, and their enemies will no more be able to hurt the men, who are believing in Alahayim; and Alahayim will stir up for Himself a faithful people, whom He shall save for eternity, and the impious shall be punished by Alahayim their king, the men who refused to love His law. Heaven and earth, nights and days, and all creatures shall obey Him, and not overstep His commandment….. And in that time shall men be purified by water from their sins. But those who are unwilling to be purified by water shall be condemned. And happy shall the man be who hath ruled his soul, when the Judgment shall come to pass and the greatness of Alahayim be seen among men and their deeds be inquired into by Alahayim, the just judge.

  •  The unwilling to be purified by water shall be condemned. Hence, according to the principles of the doctrine of Yache, water baptism is a requirement of salvation. The Body of Christ were baptized in water during the days of his apostles and so shall we also, Ahayah willing, as servants and ministers in the building of His Church. Baptism is the seal that believers must have to enter into the Kingdom of Christ.


Hebrews 6:1-3


1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward Alahayim, 

2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

3 And this will we do, if Alahayim permit. 


John 3:3-6

3 Yache answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of Alahayim. 

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Yache answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and {of} the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Alahayim. 

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

  • To be born of water is the physical baptism in water to partake in the death of Yache. To be born of Spirit is the process of the baptism of Fire which Yache baptizes with, which purges the inner man that he may be made a new creature by the renewing of the mind unto good works and faith toward Alahayim to make him worthy of receiving the Holy Spirit. The process in part, is brought about by the washing of water by the word, {Eph 5:26} which cleanses us from within by learning the words of righteousness to discern good and evil {Heb 5:13-14} that we may be transformed in our minds by the Spirit to have the mind of Yache. {I Cor 2:16} This process sanctifies us after the inner man, which Alahayim looketh toward and is of great price in his sight, {Jer 17:10;I Chron 28:9; II Pet 3:4} so we may be found blameless and unreprovable. By the physical water Baptism and Spiritual baptism of fire after the inner man, we may become one whole new creature, within and without, that we may live unto Alahayim. 


  • John the Baptist was a testimony unto the righteousness of baptism in water. Hence we are instructed to baptize in water when people have come to repentance unto Alahayim. 

MATT 3:1-6

1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.


  •  Yache avouched that baptism was necessary to “fulfill all righteousness” as evidence that we are to be baptized as well.


Matt 3:13-17

13 Then cometh Yache from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

15 And Yache answering said unto him, Suffer {it to be so} now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

16 And Yache, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of Alahayim descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

  • Yache had his disciples baptizing in water while he walked with them.

JOHN 4:1-2

When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Yache made and baptized more disciples than John, (Though Yache himself baptized not, but his disciples)


  • Yache commanded his disciples before he left also to baptize in the name of Ahayah the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit and teach men to observe all things whatsoever he commanded, and so shall we do by the grace of Ahayah Alahayim.

Matt 28:18-20

18 And Yache came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, {even} unto the end of the world. Amen.

  • The disciples continued to baptize in water even after Lord Yache ascended on high. 

Acts 8:29-39

29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

30 And Philip ran thither to {him}, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Yache.

36 And as they went on {their} way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Yache Christ is the Son of Alahayim.

38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

  • Peter  also baptized in water as an example of how baptisms must be:

Acts of Peter Chapter 5

...Now when there was a calm upon the ship in Hadria (the Adriatic), Theon showed it to Peter, saying unto him: If thou wilt account me worthy, whom thou mayest baptize with the seal of the Lord thou hast an opportunity. For all that were in the ship had fallen asleep, being drunken. And Peter went down by a rope and baptized Theon in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit: and he came up out of the water rejoicing with great joy, and Peter also was glad because Alahayim had accounted Theon worthy of his name.


G907   (Strong)




From a derivative of G911; to make whelmed (that is, fully wet); used only (in the New Testament) of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism: - baptist, baptize, wash.

Thayer Definition:

1) to dip repeatedly, to immerse, to submerge (of vessels sunk)

2) to cleanse by dipping or submerging, to wash, to make clean with water, to wash one’s self, bathe

  • One's heart must truly be found believing on the Son of Alahayim to be ready for baptism and only the Lord knows when that time has come as was the case with the Ethiopian Eunuch and he will bring it to pass by his apostles when the person is ready, just as he had done in his testimonies. We have to be prepared in our walk for baptism, because if we are still walking in our former sins and are baptized life becomes more difficult. We can't continue sinning often in the same transgressions and repenting, after we are baptized, for our repentance becomes unprofitable.


Shepherd of Hermas Mandate 4

3[31]:1 "I will still proceed, Sir," say I, "to ask a further question." "Speak on," saith he. "I have heard, Sir," say I, "from certain teachers, that there is no other repentance, save that which took place when we went down into the water and obtained remission of our former sins."

3[31]:2 He saith to me; "Thou hast well heard; for so it is. For he that hath received remission of sins ought no longer to sin, but to dwell in purity.

3[31]:3 But, since thou enquirest all things accurately, I will declare unto thee this also, so as to give no excuse to those who shall hereafter believe or those who have already believed, on the Lord. For they that have already believed, or shall hereafter believe, have not repentance for sins, but have only remission of their former sins.

3[31]:4 To those then that were called before these days the Lord has appointed repentance. For the Lord, being a discerner of hearts and foreknowing all things, perceived the weakness of men and the manifold wiles of the devil, how that he will be doing some mischief to the servants of Alahayim, and will deal wickedly with them. 3[31]:5 the Lord then, being very compassionate, had pity on His handiwork, and appointed this (opportunity of) repentance, and to me was given the authority over this repentance.

3[31]:6 But I say unto you," saith he, "if after this great and holy calling any one, being tempted of the devil, shall commit sin, he hath only one (opportunity of) repentance. But if he sin often and repent, repentance is unprofitable for such a man; for he shall live with difficulty."

3[31]:7 I say unto him, "I was quickened unto life again, when I heard these things from thee so precisely. For I know that, if I shall add no more to my sins, I shall be saved." "Thou shalt be saved," he saith, "thou and all, as many as shall do these things."

  • So we must strive to overcome the struggles of the evil spirits that are affecting us or have place in us before baptism in order to keep our baptism pure.

  • For Baptism, water is required, yet it does not have to be done in a living body of water as the Lord testimonies foretold of being purified by "water" and being born of "water." The definition of "baptism" also shows that a body of living water is not required to actually "baptize," that is, "to make someone fully wet or whelm someone in water" or "to immerse someone to make them clean with water." Hence, the scriptures show baptism can be done by immersing or whelming a person in water as the Apostle Thomas used a vessel of water to baptize and fulfill all righteousness:

Acts of Thomas 129

...And he commanded a vessel to be brought and baptized them in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  • Baptism is the Seal we must have to enter the kingdom:

Shepard of Hermas Parable 9

16[92]:1 "Show me still further, Sir," say I. "What desirest thou to know besides?" saith he. "Wherefore, Sir," say I, "did the stones come up from the deep, and wherefore were they placed into the building, though they bore these spirits?"
16[92]:2 "It was necessary for them," saith he, "to rise up through water, that they might be made alive; for otherwise they could not enter into the kingdom of Alahayim, except they had put aside the deadness of their [former] life.
16[92]:3 So these likewise that had fallen asleep received
the seal of the Son of Alahayim and entered into the kingdom of Alahayim. For before a man," saith he, "has borne the name of [the Son of] Alahayim, he is dead; but when he has received the seal, he layeth aside his deadness, and resumeth life.
16[92]:4 The seal then is the water: so they go down into the water dead, and they come up alive. "thus to them also this seal was preached, and they availed themselves of it that they might enter into the kingdom of Alahayim."
16[92]:5 "Wherefore, Sir," say I, "did the forty stones also come up with them from the deep, though they had already received the seal?" "Because," saith he, "these, the apostles and the teachers who preached the name of the Son of Alahayim, after they had fallen asleep in the power and faith of the Son of Alahayim, preached also to them that had fallen asleep before them, and themselves gave unto them the seal of the preaching.
16[92]:6 Therefore they went down with them into the water, and came up again. But these went down alive [and again came up alive]; whereas the others that had fallen asleep before them went down dead and came up alive.
16[92]:7 So by their means they were quickened into life, and came to the full knowledge of the name of the Son of Alahayim. For this cause also they came up with them, and were fitted with them into the building of the tower and were builded with them, without being shaped; for they fell asleep in righteousness and in great purity. Only they had not this seal. Thou hast then the interpretation of these things also." "I have, Sir," say I.

  • There is a proper procedure for baptizing women that Ahayah has revealed in one of the Holy records, we have not included it in this write up for the soul's sake of those who are unlearned in regards to the true gospel before baptism and for our soul's sake that we don't be a stumbling block to someone whose not appointed to baptize or who goes and baptizes themselves or someone else in the wrong names to bind that person to an unclean spirit or someone who baptizes someone in the true names before they were truly ready and had understanding of the calling. These things will lead a person to eventually fall away and have no more remission of their former sins.  Please contact us to discuss the requirements and procedure for proper baptism.
