Baptism In Water & In Spirit

Water baptism  Dove descending


Jesus' Baptism In Water & Holy Spirit 
  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
