Acts 5 verse 20 God instructs the twelve Apostles to preach the “full message” of the Gospel.
The full salvation message declared completely, correctly and concisely is “Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of sin.” Acts 2:38
When the straight forward declaration of the New Life in Jesus is altered in anyway our spiritual walk can be weak, confused and even delusional.
There are many different church dogmas for believing in God but all should be preaching as Ephesians 4:5 commands, “one Lord, one faith, one baptism”.
For example not one time in scripture do you read of a situation where someone prayed a Believers Prayer for the forgiveness of sins. There are many different cultural Christian methods for believing in Jesus but there is only one “full message” that is strong, powerful and free from weakening errors.
That “full message” is summed up in the first sermon Peter preached to the Christian church just coming alive.
“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.
And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.”
Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. (Acts 2:36-41)
