What is Spirit-Baptism?

3:21-22; Acts 2:1-4,33-39,42-47; I Cor. 6:15-20; 12:13,27.

4. In Acts 2:1-4, all previously water-baptized people, being Hebrews, now received the completion of their water-baptism — in their Spirit-baptism into Christ's new earthly body (the Visible Church). As His wheat, they were then gathered into Christ's new storehouse. Gathered together were not only the twelve apostles who miraculously spoke forth the Gospel in foreign languages. Acts 1:2,8,11,26 & 2:1-4,7,14. Also there were the rest of the disciples, who did not then so speak. Acts 1:14-15 cf. Lk. 3:10-16. As Prof. Dr. F.F. Bruce declares in his Commentary on Acts 2:4, "the Spirit-baptism took place once for all, so far as the believing community was concerned."
