Bible Q & A

Q. If a person were baptized without first repenting, would he or she ever be forgiven by God?
 
A. Repentance is the key to forgiveness of sin (Acts 2:38; 3:19). If a person is baptized without first repenting then he or her sins are not forgiven. But whether or not those sins are ever forgiven depends on whether or not that person repents in the future. They may again be re-baptized as a symbol of the death of their old self and resurrection to new life in Christ with His Holy Spirit. But God is very merciful, He is glad to forgive us whenever we repent (Ps. 86:5)
