    "repentance"

    baptism
    The action is to believe Jesus is resurrected from the dead, and to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. The rest of the list is reactionary from the action.
    FreedomFighter, Why do you think these baptism passages are Holy Spirit baptisms? Remember Eph 4:5 says there is only one baptism. Do you believe that water baptism should not be practiced today? Does reactionary mean they are not important to received salvation? Thanks again for your comments. Norm1
