baptism as a requirement to be saved is faith plus works
Calling baptism a work is not a stretch. The word for " work" or "deed" in the Bible is "Ergon " and means " to toil ". Here is a question for those who teach that you are not saved until you are baptized; Did God carry you to and immerse you under the water on the day that you were baptized? No. Man did, and he did it by toiling, or working. If man cannot be saved unless man toils (water baptism), then man cannot be saved without works ( faith and works ).
