The consistent message of the original church was repentance and faith. The apostles called upon those in their preaching to repent of their sins and place their faith in Jesus Christ and submit to believer’s baptism. Repentance and baptism is the entrance point into the kingdom of heaven. Also, repentance and faith do not end with baptism, it only begins. Every disciple of Christ goes through a consistent pattern of repentance and renewing their faith in Jesus Christ.
