Another Baptism

ACTS 19:2-7

And he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”  And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.” And Paul said, “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying. 7 There were about twelve men in all.

When we come to Christ, we are called to be baptized in water as a sign of commitment to Jesus and our new life. It is a public declaration of our new self. But did you know there is another baptism?Humanity needs the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to live out the life God has for us effectively.In the scripture above, we see how Paul shows the need for baptism into the Holy Spirit to people who are already water baptized and have accepted Jesus.Therefore, a believer must be baptized into the Holy Spirit because He is the one who is on this earth to help guide us into all truth.Watch the video below on the baptism of the Holy Spirit by Pastor Josh:
