But then the Bible contradicts itself.What I'm saying is that holding to the same message as the apostle Peter and Paul is good. Anything less is incomplete, and you'll be accountable to God for something different. We are all accountable to God, and I'd rather do what he says than only partially. Jesus warned about the dangers of the traditions of men.
Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. ”

John 3:16–18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God

How do you reconcile your position given the above quoted verses that do not require baptism for salvation?
Ah...so you do belong to a cult. The oneness pentecostal cult. The heresy of modalism. That makes all this clearer for me about you.The Trinity is a manmade doctrine, not found in the Bible. There is one, Holy God, the Father, who was manifested in the flesh as the Son of God. Jesus is God and the Holy Spirit is God's presence acting upon and infilling people. God is Spirit.
