Prep for baptism starts with one BIG step, and that is how do you really feel about our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. As Savior, do you believe that He is the only way to be saved into His kingdom? That means that any other entity is excluded, and that one's own good works are not enough. This is clear in the Bible: John 14:6Ephesians 2:8-10. To believe that Jesus is Lord, is to agree to rely on God's Holy Spirit to empower you to keep His commandments as you build upon your love relationship with Jesus, and become aware of the ways in which He wants you to live your life as it is stated in John 14:15-17
