Aren't we saved the moment we believe and confess Christ (Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:13)? Sacraments are only symbolic of the salvation we have already received. They do not have any saving effect.        

Romans 10:9 says that "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Baptism, footwashing, and Holy Communion are not mentioned; why are they necessary for salvation?        

The Lord Jesus is the author of salvation, not the church, so if I don't go to church, as long as I believe in the Lord Jesus and follow the correct path to salvation, won't I be saved?        

Why does it matter how a person is baptized? And if I've already been baptized in another church, must I be baptized again?        

Isn't trying to do the right thing good enough? Won't God accept me if I try to be a good, sincere person?        

Salvation is by grace through faith, not by works (Ephesians 2:8,9). Aren't sacraments of works, not of faith?        

The apostle Paul stresses that Abraham was justified before circumcision, not after (Romans 4:10-12). Circumcision was only a sign of the righteousness he had already received by faith. Aren't sacraments likewise only signs, with no effect?        

If Christ removed the law by nailing it to the cross (Col 2:14), then why do believers still need to keep that Sabbath?        

Heaven is too "spiritual" and boring. How can you be happy there if you do nothing but worship all day?        

Do baptized believers who have not received the Holy Spirit belong to Christ?
