Romans 10:9 yea, it is at that same time, that one is expected to give witness to the fact, and confess publicly that Yeshua is your Lord and Savior..You're the one who asked.
That's right. Discipleship, then baptism. Nothing about being saved by baptism.
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
