Bible verses about "being baptized" | CLV

Acts 2:1-47

1 And at the fulfillment of the day of Pentecost they were all alike in the same place. 2 And suddenly there came out of heaven a blare, even as of a violent, carrying blast, and it fills the whole house where they were sitting." 3 And seen by them were dividing tongues as if of fire, and one is seated on each one of them." 4 And they are all filled with holy spirit, and they begin to speak in different languages, according as the spirit gave them to declaim." 5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem, Jews, pious men from every nation under heaven." 6 Now when this sound occurs, the multitude came together and was confused, for each one hears them speaking in his own vernacular." 7 Now they are all amazed, and marveled, saying, "Lo! are not all these who are speaking, Galileans? 8 And how are we hearing, each in our own vernacular in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea, as well as Cappadocia, Pontus, and the province of Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and the repatriated Romans, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs - we are hearing them speaking in these languages of ours of the great things of God!" 12 Now, amazed are they all, and they were bewildered, saying one to another, "What is this wanting to be? 13 Yet other, taunting, said that "With sweet wine are they bloated!" 14 Now Peter, standing with the eleven, lifts up his voice and declaims to them: "Men! Jews! and all who are dwelling at Jerusalem! Let this be known to you, and give ear to my declarations, 15 for these are not drunk, as you take it, for it is the third hour of the day." 16 But this is that which has been declared through the prophet Joel: 17 And it shall be in the last days,' (God is saying) 'I shall be pouring out from My spirit on all flesh, And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your youths visions shall be seeing, And your elders dreams shall be dreaming, 18 And surely on My men slaves and on My women slaves in those days shall I be pouring out from My spirit,' and they shall be prophesying." 19 And I will give miracles in heaven above, And signs on the earth below, Blood and fire and vapor pillars of smoke, 20 The sun shall be converted into darkness And the moon into blood Ere the coming of the day of the Lord, The great and advent day." 21 And it shall be that everyone, whosoever should be invoking the name of the Lord, shall be saved.'" 22 Men! Israelites! Hear these words: Jesus, the Nazarene, a Man demonstrated to be from God for you by powerful deeds and miracles and signs, which God does through Him in the midst of you, according as you yourselves are aware -" 23 This One, given up in the specific counsel and foreknowledge of God, you, gibbeting by the hand of the lawless, assassinate, 24 Whom God raises, loosing the pangs of death, forasmuch as it was not possible for Him to be held by it." 25 For David is saying to Him, I saw the Lord before me continually, Seeing that He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken." 26 Therefore gladdened was my heart, And exultant my tongue. Now, still my flesh also shall be tenting in expectation, 27 For Thou wilt not be forsaking my soul in the unseen, Nor wilt Thou be giving Thy Benign One to be acquainted with decay." 28 Thou makest known to me the paths of life. Thou wilt be filling me with gladness with Thy face.' 29 Men! Brethren! Allow me to say to you with boldness concerning the patriarch David, that he deceases also and was entombed, and his tomb is among us until this day." 30 Being, then, inherently, a prophet, and having perceived that God swears to him with an oath, out of the fruit of his loin to seat One on his throne, 31 perceiving this before, he speaks concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither forsaken in the unseen, nor was His flesh acquainted with decay." 32 This Jesus God raises, of Whom we all are witnesses." 33 Being, then, to the right hand of God exalted, besides obtaining the promise of the holy spirit from the Father, He pours out this which you are observing and hearing." 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, yet he is saying, 'Said the Lord to my Lord, "Sit at My right" 35 Till I should be placing Thine enemies for a footstool for Thy feet."'" 36 Let all the house of Israel know certainly, then, that God makes Him Lord as well as Christ - this Jesus Whom you crucify!" 37 Now, hearing this, their heart was pricked with compunction. Besides, they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "What should we be doing, men, brethren? 38 Now Peter is averring to them, "Repent and be baptized each of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the pardon of your sins, and you shall be obtaining the gratuity of the holy spirit." 39 For to you is the promise and to your children, and to all those afar, whosoever the Lord our God should be calling to Him." 40 Besides, with more and different words, he conjures and entreated them, saying, "Be saved from this crooked generation!" 41 Those indeed, then, who welcome his word, are baptized, and there were added in that day about three thousand souls." 42 Now they were persevering in the teaching of the apostles, and in fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." 43 Now on every soul came fear, yet many miracles and signs occurred through the apostles in Jerusalem. Besides, great fear was on all." 44 Now all those who believe also were in the same place and had all things in common. 45 And they disposed of the acquisitions and the properties, and divided them to all, forasmuch as some would have had need." 46 Besides persevering day by day with one accord in the sanctuary, besides breaking bread home by home, they partook of nourishment with exultation and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor for the whole people. Now the Lord added those being saved day by day in the same place.

Acts 16:31

31 Now they say, "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household."

2 Peter 3:9

9 The Lord is not tardy as to the promise, as some are deeming tardiness, but is patient because of you, not intending any to perish, but all to make room for repentance."

Romans 6:1-23

1 What, then, shall we declare? That we may be persisting in sin that grace should be increasing? 2 May it not be coming to that! We, who died to sin, how shall we still be living in it? 3 Or are you ignorant that whoever are baptized into Christ Jesus, are baptized into His death? 4 We, then, were entombed together with Him through baptism into death, that, even as Christ was roused from among the dead through the glory of the Father, thus we also should be walking in newness of life." 5 For if we have become planted together in the likeness of His death, nevertheless we shall be of the resurrection also, 6 knowing this, that our old humanity was crucified together with Him, that the body of Sin may be nullified, for us by no means to be still slaving for Sin, 7 for one who dies has been justified from Sin. 8 Now if we died together with Christ, we believe that we shall be living together with Him also, 9 having perceived that Christ, being roused from among the dead, is no longer dying. Death is lording it over Him no longer, 10 for in that He died, He died to Sin once for all time, yet in that He is living, He is living to God." 11 Thus you also, be reckoning yourselves to be dead, indeed, to Sin, yet living to God in Christ Jesus, our Lord." 12 Let not Sin, then, be reigning in your mortal body, for you to be obeying its lusts." 13 Nor yet be presenting your members, as implements of injustice, to Sin, but present yourselves to God as if alive from among the dead, and your members as implements of righteousness to God." 14 For Sin shall not be lording it over you, for you are not under law, but under grace." 15 What then? Should we be sinning, seeing that we are not under law, but under grace? May it not be coming to that!" 16 Are you not aware that to whom you are presenting yourselves as slaves for obedience, his slaves you are, whom you are obeying, whether of Sin for death, or of Obedience for righteousness? 17 Now thanks be to God that you were slaves of Sin, yet you obey from the heart the type of teaching to which you were given over." 18 Now, being freed from Sin, you are enslaved to Righteousness." 19 As a man am I saying this, because of the infirmity of your flesh. For even as you present your members as slaves to Uncleanness and to Lawlessness for lawlessness, thus now present your members as slaves to Righteousness for holiness." 20 For when you were slaves of Sin, you were free as to Righteousness." 21 What fruit, then, had you then? - of which you are now ashamed, for, indeed, the consummation of those things is death." 22 Yet, now, being freed from Sin, yet enslaved to God, you have your fruit for holiness. Now the consummation is life eonian." 23 For the ration of Sin is death, yet the gracious gift of God is life eonian, in Christ Jesus, our Lord."

Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For in grace, through faith, are you saved, and this is not out of you; it is God's approach present, 9 not of works, lest anyone should be boasting."

Acts 8:36-38

36 Now as they went along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch is averring, "Lo! Water! What is preventing me from being baptized? 37 -38 And he orders the chariot to stand, and they both descended into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptizes him."

16 He who believes and is baptized shall be saved, yet he who disbelieves shall be condemned."

16 And now, why do you defer? Rise, be baptized, and bathe off your sins, invoking His name.'"

27 For whoever are baptized into Christ, put on Christ,
