Do only Baptists get saved?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the Baptist doctrine, so please excuse my ignorant inquiries. I would like to know about salvation. Do Christians who adhere to the teachings of other Christian denominations (sub-denominations / groups / Churches etc.) have a chance at salvation, or do only Baptists get saved?

Salvation is not in any church. 

Roman's 10

9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

 10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

No mention of any church there, just trusting in Christ.

And also:

Ephesians 2

8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it isthe gift of God:

 9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

No mention of any church.

Salvation is about what Jesus Christ has done to pay for our sins.

Basically Baptist Doctrine is based on what you read in the bible alone as your authority for faith and Practice. Catholic doctrine is based on what the catholic church teaches for authority in faith and practice. Catholics believe that you must be part of their church and keep all their commandments to be saved. Baptist believe as the bible teaches, that salvation is given to anyone who puts their faith in Christ alone. This means baptist believe anyone can be saved regardless of what church they attend or not. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Romans 3:21-30 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30 seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.


Romans 10:6-13 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) 7 or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) 8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

I agree whole-heartedly with the answers that have been given above by Brother Dave and Brother John.  Yet I would add that spiritual growth AFTER salvation may be greatly helped or hindered by the church that an individual chooses and by the teaching that an individual receives through that church.  

1 Peter 2:2 states, "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby."  According to this verse, spiritual growth AFTER salvation is rooted in and founded upon the teaching of God's Word.  Therefore, a church that is less Biblically faithful in its teaching will be less helpful to a saved individual's spiritual growth; and a church that is more Biblically faithful in its teaching will be more helpful to a saved individual's spiritual growth.
