Acts 1: 5,8 For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now..But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Why? Jesus tells us in Mark 16:16 that “he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved”.
There are only two biblical sacraments: communion and baptism . Communion should be done regularly, for one, because Jesus said so (Luke 22:19). Again, you cannot lose your salvation, therefore we should not be baptized more than once in life.
Possibility #1: Jesus was baptized in order to identify with those he came to save. And Jesus knewthat he too must identify himself with this movement towards God” John’s baptism was part of the people’s turning from sin and turning toward God. Jesus wanted to identify with this turning.
It was is faith that made him go to Heaven , not baptism . However before Jesus Christ left to go to Heaven , he told his disciples to preach the word and baptize people in the father, son, and the Holy Spirit. You cannot go to Heaven unless you are baptized in the Spirit.
The phrase ” baptized in the Holy Spirit ” occurs two times in Acts of the Apostles, first in Acts 1:4–5 and second in Acts 11:16.
Of course you can. You can be baptized a Catholic at birth, but born again as an Evangelical Protestant. That said, you will receive a second baptism .
Churches of Christ consistently teach that in baptism a believer surrenders his life in faith and obedience to God, and that God “by the merits of Christ’s blood, cleanses one from sin and truly changes the state of the person from an alien to a citizen of God’s kingdom.
Jesus did not baptize anyone (for obvious reasons) but He commanded His disciples to do so as even today He commands all men to “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
At the moment that Jesus was baptised there were significant events : heaven was opened. God’s spirit descended on Jesus . God’s voice was heard.
