Does Baptism "SAVE" you?  No. Why?

Is Baptism important? yes.  In the AUTHORITY "Name" of Jesus? yes.
It is the first act of obedience. 
FAITH is "believing"
WORKS is "baptism"
What "saves" you?
What did Paul say on the subject?

Acts 2:38, "Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.‘"
This verse is often used to say that baptism is part of salvation, but we know from other scriptures that it is not, lest there be a contradiction. What is going on here is simply that repentance and forgiveness of sins are connected. In the Greek, "repent" is in the plural and so is "your" of "your sins." They are meant to be understood as being related to each other. It is like saying, "All of you repent, each of you get baptized, and all of you will receive forgiveness." Repentance is a mark of salvation because it is granted by God (2 Tim. 2:25) and is given to believers only. In this context, only the regenerated, repentant person is to be baptized. Baptism is the manifestation of the repentance, that gift from God, that is the sign of the circumcised heart. That is why it says, "repent and be baptized."

Also, please notice that there is no mention of faith in Acts 2:38. If this verse is a description of what is necessary for salvation, then why is faith not mentioned? Simply saying it is implied isn't good enough. Peter is not teaching a formula for salvation but for covenant obedience, which is why the next verse says that the promise is for their children as well.

ABOUT OUR Car situation

 A while back in July of 2016 my Bank account debit card was hacked with some guy down in Mexico racking up about $6,000.oo worth of charges and the Bank realizing that surely it was not us put a stop to it.  Along with all of the "stop-charges" was to State Farm Bank the lean holder on our car. So we just started paying on the car with old fashion checks instead of the digital withdrawal.  As things went on somehow or other we fell behind on some things, and one of those items was about two car payments. 
   With the 2016 TAX INCOME Returns, we were able to get caught up on our funds that were in the red. So Lady Snow goes ahead and tells the "old car" lean holder to go ahead and withdraw their due from the account before we fall any more behind. Lo and Behold - forgetting about the "stop-payment" hold there is a "non-sufficient funds" overdraft charge.
   This past Monday I got ready to go to work like any other day and the handicap parking space is empty with only the distinctive circular marks only a horrid tow-truck could have left behind! My car was missing.  An imploding, gut wrenching feeling came over me.  "Was my car stolen?" After much questioning and investigation I finally called the Police and sure enough, the informed me that indeed my vehicle had been - Repocessed.

   We had the funds.  We had made the payment.  But time and situations and confusion we had also forgotten to lift the "stop-payment" Order, and now accrued an additional $545.78 of additional debt of which we were certainly unable to deal with.  My daughter was more than willing but after circling the camp of out of the box thinking no matter how much she wanted to help things fell through.  We lost our car, sustained a "bad Credit" rating and panic and fear set in.  Answered prayers and clearer thinking lead us to another dealership and we gained a new car with a little lower insurance rates and I got to keep my job. Beginning, middle, and end - God is always good and we still learn lessons.
