Baptism is a paradox for many Christians. On the one hand the New Testament says that we are saved by grace, through faith, not by works (Ephesians 2:8-9). On the other hand, people were told to “repent and be baptized … for the forgiveness of your sins” (Acts 2:38). But isn't baptism a "work"?
In this 23-page booklet, L. A. Mott, Jr., argues that baptism, while a condition of salvation, is perfectly compatible with salvation by grace. Rather than cite a litany of proof texts, he uses a brief exposition of the first five chapters of Paul’s Epistle to the Romans to set the context necessary to understand exactly where baptism actually does fit into God’s scheme of redemption for the world.
