According to Christian doctrine all you need to do receive salvation is to believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Baptism is not mandatory for salvation.
I personally rejected the foregoing as a teen because the notion of hell and eternal burning pain pertains to our bodily existence (in our carbon shells) and can't be extended into our spiritual realm beyond the flesh. I also rejected this a long time ago because it was clear to me that no Parent (i.e., JAH) would allow any of His children to suffer such a fate. I think hell is just a human-invented, coercive marketing tool (a la mafia-style arm-twisting) to recruit more revenue suppliers into the church.
In my opinion, the Bible has been compromised over the centuries and contains some false information. The Bible also contains an abundance of Wisdom. To differentiate that which is false from that which is Truth and Wisdom, one must bring a Good and True heart to their study of the Bible and avoid people who offer to "interpret" it for them (e.g., preachers).
Any doctrine, no matter how Good and Righteous can be perverted and put to evil use (e.g., witness some of the promotion of evil that has been put forth in the Name of RastafarI, which I personally regard as the ultimate Righteous path and lifestyle). An impeccably Righteous doctrine cannot be completely shielded from those who would use and abuse it. Again, the key to avoiding charlatans and nefarious misinterpretations is to bring a Good and True heart to your faith and trod, and to always keep the brain turned on. Evil is apparent if you do these things unless one's moral compass has been severely corrupted & one has been blinded by the likes of worldly greed, hatred, resentment, or abuse. If this latter is the case, then only JAH's Love and Compassion can open the blinded person's I's and restore the vision to discern Good from Evil.
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" - Matthew 7:7-8
