I'm sorry. I don't fully understand your phrasing of the question. Did you mean, "Do you have to be baptized to become a Christian to go to heaven?" Well, yes, baptism is part of the salvation process, but by itself it is no more than getting wet. As Strawberry said, "Baptism cannot be a requirement for salvation." Such is the case for anything that people can think is enough by itself : repenting, believing, praying, confessing, etc. Eph 3:1-14; 1 Cor 2:4-9; 2 Tim. 1:7-10; Titus 1:1-3, etc. all show that God had the plan in place even before creating the world! And verses like Eph. 5:2; Hebrews 7 : 24 - 27; Heb. 9:26 and 10:12; Rom. 3:23,24,25 ; 1John 4:10; 1Pet. 1:17,18,19; Eph. 1:7, etc. show clearly that it is through Christ's sacrifice that we obtain salvation. However, God is wanting a covenant relationship with us, and as such we "have to do our part", as little as that may be in comparison to what God has done! Yes, to be a Christian to go to heaven you have to hear the Gospel, believe it, repent of your wrongs, confess the Lord, and be baptized into Jesus to receive the forgiveness of sins and receive the Holy Spirit. As a Christian you then need to grow in Christ, bearing fruit of the spirit to go to heaven. Again, I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I hope it does.
Baptism does not save from sin but from a bad conscience. In 1 Peter 3:21, Peter clearly taught that baptism was not a ceremonial act of physical purification, but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. Baptism is the symbol of what has already occurred in the heart and life of one who has trusted Christ as Savior (Romans 6:3-5; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12). Baptism is an important step of obedience that every Christian should take. Baptism cannot be a requirement for salvation. To make it such is an attack on the sufficiency of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I belie when your born into a religion ,as long as you follow and respect whatever religion it might be you will see whatever holds on the other side. As long as your a good person.Baptism is for certain religions
Well this question is interesting. There's only a certain number of people that are actually going to heaven when they die. They number 144,000 (revelation 7:4). God chose them in Pentecost 33 c.e., after Jesus was resurrected. Hence, they are not selected from many different religions. All are Christians, and all proudly bear the name of the Father—Jehovah. When they are resurrected, they receive an assignment of work in the heavens. The prospect of serving God in such a direct way is simply thrilling to them.
Revelation 7:9 speaks of a "great crowd." This great crowd will enjoy peaceful conditions on a paradise earth.
Not really. Salvation is not based on baptism. However baptism is important as an act of faith and obedience once you have become a Christian. I want caution you on at least one answer here. Krobles1127 us a Jehovahs Witness. Its a very arrogant denomination that didnt even exist unto the early 1900's. They misinterpret that Revelations passage - in their own favor of course. Only JWs are going to heaven. No other Christians even, just 144,000 JWs. Dont pay attention to that silliness.
The Bible says that baptism is an important step to gaining salvation. (1 Peter 3:21) This doesn’t mean, though, that baptism is like an insurance policy that you buy to protect yourself in case disaster should strike. You get baptized because you love Jehovah and want to serve him forever with your whole heart.—Mark 12:29, 30. This is why even if you are not baptized, you are still accountable to God for your actions. James 4:17 states: “If one knows how to do what is right and yet does not do it, it is a sin for him”—baptized or not.Baptism itself is not what saves. And though we must ‘put away the filth of the flesh,’ that alone does not save us. Rather, salvation is “through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Are you asking "do you have to be baptized to reach heaven?" Not necessarily. Getting baptized is a sign to people that you have committed your life to the Lord. It isn't really a requirement. It is good to do though. But you can reach heaven if you are not baptized. That doesn't mean you should think, "I don't need to be baptized to get to heaven, so I'm not going to." It is a good thing to do in the Christian life.
