Salvation

Humanity in its natural state is at enmity with God. We can do nothing to make ourselves holy and righteous before a holy and righteous God, therefore we are in desperate need of God's grace. Thankfully, Christ in His mercy has redeemed us of our sins when He stepped forth into the world to take our sins upon Himself. When Jesus appeared before John the Baptist, He went down into the water without sin but when He arose from the water, "He who knew no sin became sin for us." (2 Cor. 5:21) Taking our sins upon Himself in baptism He bore the penalty of sin, carrying it to the cross where God himself was crucified on our behalf, giving to us the full forgiveness of Christ. In Baptism we exchange our sinfulness for Christ's forgiveness. As Jesus said, "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."(Mark 16:16)

"The benefits of Baptism is that it gives the forgiveness of sins, rescues from death and the devil, and gives eternal salvation to all who believe. Baptism also indicates that the Old Adam in us should, by daily contrition and repentance, be drown and die with all sins and evil desires, and that the new man should daily emerge and arise to live before God in righteousness and purity forever." (Luther's Small Catechism)
