Introduction: Christians disagree about baptism. Even Baptists hold
knives to each other’s throats on this topic, especially when someone
suggests that there might be more than one baptism. Because of the
subject’s importance, many hours have been spent studying it. Though
much has been learned from others, this article takes a unique approach
which will hopefully be helpful to the reader. However, no man’s
teaching is without error. As in all doctrinal studies, scripture is the
final authority for all truth.
- Filling of the Spirit: The last one is not a baptism though some would
refer to it as such. It is the filling of the Spirit. However, if you
are a child of God, you are commanded to be filled with the Spirit. You

Spirit Baptism: What is Spirit baptism? Is this some sort of external
experience that we ought to seek today or is this a total

Baptisms - Baptism with the Holy Ghost:
To understand the baptism with the Holy Ghost, you must understand that
it was an event. Acts 1:6 teaches that the baptism with the Holy Ghost
would occur “not many days hence.” We know that this baptism occurred in
Acts chapter two on the Day of Pentecost. It was a special day. It was a
unique day. It is not to be sought again and again. On that day, the
believing Jews were brought into the baptism with the Holy Ghost.
Water Baptism: Generally speaking, the way John baptized Jesus is how we
baptize believers in water today. It is not John baptizing Jesus, but it
is one man, usually a preacher, who as the Administrator takes the
person who has come to be baptized, the Subject, and puts them into the
water, the Medium. You have the Administrator, the Subject and the
Medium. That is still our basic form of baptism as to external physical
