A Christian Doesn’t Believe In Water Baptism

John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with (placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5).

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “a person has to be water baptized to be Christian”, that teaching does not agree with what the Bible says.

Ephesians 4:5 One Lord [Yeshua the Messiah], one faith, one baptism.

According to Eph 4:5 there is only one baptism, so baptism is either water baptism or the Holy Spirit. Acts 11:16-18 makes it very clear that water baptism is not the repentance that leads to life, the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the repentance that leads to life (Acts 11:18).

Acts 11:15-16 And as I [Peter] began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them [the Gentiles], just as he did upon us at the beginning.

11:16 – And I remembered the word of the Lord, how he used to say, John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit.

11:17 – Therefore if God gave to them the same gift [the Holy Spirit] as {He gave} to us also after believing in the Lord Yeshua the Messiah who was I that I could stand in God’s way?

11:18 – When they heard this, they quieted down and glorified God, saying, “Well then, God has granted to the Gentiles also the repentance {that leads} to life.”

1 Corinthians 12:13 – For by one Spirit [the Holy Spirit] are we [those who are born of the Spirit] all baptized into one body

A Christian is someone that is baptized in the Holy Spirit, the baptism in the Holy Spirit is what makes a person born of the Spirit, without the baptism in the Holy Spirit, no one is born of God.

The teaching that says a person must be water baptized to receive the Holy Spirit is false, the teaching that says a Christian should be water baptized is false, no one has to be water baptized to receive the Holy Spirit.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say, “a person has to be water baptized to be Christian”, because the Bible does not say that. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something different than what the Bible says a Christian is supposed to believe.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something different than what the Bible says a Christian is supposed to believe, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit], they are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
