Baptism in the Holy Spirit
A Giving Light Discipleship Course
While He still walked the earth, Jesus promised that He would send a helper to His followers to empower us in life. That helper is the Holy Spirit!
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is in addition to salvation and separate from water baptism. When we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we receive the equipping (or clothing) of power by God for life and service. As part of this baptism, He has also given us access to a perfect prayer language that is often called, "praying in tongues" or "praying in the Holy Spirit."
In this Giving Light discipleship course, you will learn:
- The Biblical foundation for this powerful baptism
- The benefits of speaking in tongues
- Receive your Holy Spirit prayer language
- Learn how to lead others in receiving this divine gift
Acts 1:4-5, 8: “In one of these meetings [Jesus] told them not to leave Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit came upon them in fulfillment of the Father’s promise, a matter he had previously discussed with them. ‘John baptized you with water,’ he reminded them, ‘but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit in just a few days.’ …when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power to testify about me with great effect, to the people in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth, about my death and resurrection.” (TLB)
Acts 2:4: “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
