XIV. The Baptism of the Spirit - Speaker Baptism of the Spirit OR Download

The baptism of the Spirit is the act of receiving the Holy Spirit as a begettal from God the Father.  This spiritual begettal is granted to each believer through the laying on of hands after baptism by full immersion in water.  Upon receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, the believer becomes a begotten child of God the Father.  The baptism of the Holy Spirit places the believer into the spiritual Church of God, the Body of Jesus Christ, of which all begotten children of God are members.
