Baptism In Water & In Spirit

Water baptism  Dove descending

Jesus' Baptism In Water & Holy Spirit Simultaneously   MATTHEW 3:1-14

•  Jesus was baptised in the River Jordan as a sign of repentance from sin
   (although Jesus himself lived a sinless life).   
•  Jesus' baptism in water was accompanied by being baptised in the Holy Spirit
    as God's affirmation and empowerment for ministry
   
In other words Jesus was baptised in water and in Spirit simultaneously

Baptism in Holy Spirit in The Book of Acts

In The Book of the Acts of the Apostles we see several examples of individuals being baptised in water and in Holy Spirit.

•  Sometimes the person was baptised in water & in Spirit simultaneously 
eg ACTS 8:26-39
•  Sometimes the person was baptised in water first and later in Spirit 
eg  ACTS 19:1-7
•  Sometimes the person was baptised in Spirit before being baptised in water 
eg  ACTS 10:23-48
