      In Acts 10 Peter was told by God to go to Cornelius and preach the gospel to him and those who were with him. While he was still preaching this happened:

      While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared, “Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days. (Acts 10:44-48 ESV)

      The Holy Spirit fell on the people who were listening, showing that they were saved. It was only after this had happened that they were baptized in water.

        If water baptism was necessary for salvation, then the thief on the cross could not have been in Paradise with Jesus Christ that same day.

        And baptism would have been included in the 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 passage. -- the Gospel in a nutshell.

        However, water baptism // by immersion Is the outward expression of what has already taken place in our heart.
