Some believe that salvation occurs, not when we confess Jesus as Lord, but when immersed in water. They believe that the dead condition of the church is because of failure to embrace baptismal regeneration. In reality, its because so few actually turn to Jesus; baptism isn’t the answer–genuine repentance is: “Repent, therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…” (Acts 3:19).
