Man is lost and must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. Salvation comes through the
birth of the Water and the Spirit. Repentance, baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and
the infilling of the Holy Ghost, speaking with other tongues, is the New Testament plan of
salvation for all mankind. The Holy Spirit enables men to live without sin in this present world.
(John 3:5; Acts 2:38; Acts 2:4; Romans 8; Romans 12)

A Breakdown of What Repentance, Water Baptism, & the Holy Ghost is..........

 Repentance and Remission of Sin

 The only grounds upon which God will accept a sinner is repentance from the heart for his sins that he has committed. A broken and contrite heart He will not despise (Psalm 51:17). John preached repentance, Jesus proclaimed it, and before His ascension commanded that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name, beginning at Jerusalem (Luke 24:47). Peter fulfilled this command on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:38).

 Water Baptism

 The scriptural mode of baptism is immersion, and is only for those who have fully repented, having turned from their sins and a love of the world. It should be administered by a duly authorized minister of the Gospel in obedience to the Word of God and in the name of Jesus Christ, according to the Acts of the Apostles; 2:38; 8:16; 10:48; 19:5, thus obeying and fulfilling Matthew 28:19.

 Holy Ghost Baptism

 John the Baptist, in Matthew 3:11, said “… He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.”

Jesus, in Acts 1:5, said, “… ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”

Luke tells us in Acts 2:4, “… and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues, (languages) as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

The terms “baptized with the Holy Ghost,” “filled with the Holy Ghost,” and the “gift of the Holy Ghost,” are synonymous terms which are interchangeable in the Bible.
