Sin is eternal separation to God but once we accept Lord Jesus as Lord and Savior we are save to death because of sin and as one who believed to Christ that He had die for all sinner we follow him and we commit our life to him through baptism but it is not necessarily needed to have baptism again when we commit sin after we became a Christian. All we need to do is to ask forgiveness to God through prayer
Praise God for your beautiful question Sir! God blesses you all the time!
IF you believe in Jesus Christ as your PERSONAL saviour and are baptized in His name you will be saved. To MAINTAIN your salvation God has provided that IF you confess your sins He is faithful and just to forgive you of your sins and to cleanse you from ALL unrighteousness. This enables us to continue to walk with Him as we grow in Him and become changed more into His image along the way. This does not give us a license to sin but should we sin, it gives us a way back to His mercy and cleansing. A new beginning point so to speak. Also, when we sin we have an Advocate or Lawyer, Christ Jesus, who stands in our defense based upon His sacrifice upon the cross which paid for our sins, past, present and future.
Baptizing has become an action of man. I am pretty sure God never said for us to be baptized (I could be wrong) but once your saved and you sin, repent! You have to mean it though! God will know if your saying it just to sin again! (lol)
Absolutely YES, if only you are not been baptized in one true religion yet. You need to be baptized again becuase there's only one baptism and only one religion that will lead us through ALMIGHTY GOD.
I've always believed that baptism is a commitment to living a Godly life. We can't be perfect, and baptized or not we'll all make mistakes. I have heard of people falling away from God and living a sinful life, then regretting it and getting re-baptized to show that they are renewing that commitment. Personally, I believe after the initial baptism we just need to continue confessing our sins to God and asking for forgiveness.
Baptism was and is a symbolic signal of profession of ones belief in Christ Jesus. He was baptised to symbolize that John the Baptist was preaching the truth in his ministry. Some people believe that if you are not baptized you are not saved--WRONG. A chaplain witnesses to a dying person that accepts and dies before baptize is no less save that one by imersion, etc. How many times did Christ did ONCE! Thus once saved always saved. Some will fall away that did not really accept Him but went thru the act. Remember wolves in sheeps clothing-thus hypocrits.

All the other churches that are not a Church of Christ teach a damnable doctrine and people ignorantly believe these pastors, evangelists, ministers and elders of these denominational churches. I'll tell you why!For instance, the Catholics place Jesus in a manger on December 25th, when He is God...

Do you think that if a baby dies without being baptized, it's soul ends up in Hell? And if you do, What are your means for justification?

Why do most people not baptize those they lead to the Lord right away?Most people that lead someone to the Lord (being born again according to scripture) do not take them and baptize them right away. Why not ?

Why would any christian church provide a Certificate of Baptism for a person baptized?What is the purpose for any any christian denomination to provide a certificate of baptism? Is this suppose to show some kind of proof? Does true baptism require some kind of writen proof?

How does one determine that their baptism by water and fire is correctly done by authority?Most people recognize authority, and in the Christians world, for example, baptism by immersion is the first step back to God. The drawback on this matter is the number of times one needs to be baptized...
