Essence of Essential 1

Most evangelical groups have essentials for salvation - the things that must be there in order for one to be saved.

Baptism, communion, speaking in tongues, praying Jesus into your heart...etc. It all too often turns into a list - a list with with bullet point scriptures following each point.

It becomes the dogma that answers the question, "what must I do to be saved?" before it is even asked. Answers are fine, but not when the question is not even asked.

So, what is essential to salvation?
