Baptists/work fo the Holy Spirit


Greetings, Pastor Abrams. I was searching the internet on a particular subject about the Holy Spirit, and came upon your truth webpage, and low and behold, a graduate of Piedmont BC. I live in Clemmons.

Anyway, I see many verses using the term baptism with the Holy Spirit, or by the Holy Spirit, or the Spirit coming upon individuals, but nowhere is "of" used, as in baptism OF the Holy Spirit. Is this correct? I am beginning a study in Acts next week with 50 ladies, one of which is from outside our local congregation and claims the "second work of baptism of the Holy Spirit". I want to stick with the Word, and make sure of my above facts. Thank you!

Hi Rose,
    I have written an article on what the New Testament teaches about the baptism vs the filling of the Holy Spirit.   The article is at .
    There is also another article on "Who is the Holy Spirit?"
    I have several articles that deal with the false teachings of the Charismatic/Pentecostal churches. .
    It is tragic that so many have been deceived by the false teachers.  I have tried to show those who are interest in what God's says to find the truth.
Thank you for writing.  Our home church is Calvary Baptist Church in King.  May God bless and direct your study.
