I agree completely with what you've said, though I would like to add that at the day of Pentecost Peter gave us the way of salvation in Acts 2:38 which states: "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Also, Jesus gave us the commandment in Mark 16:16 "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues." As he told Nicodemus in John 3:5: "...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." And the Bible speaks of many more times where people where baptized in the name of Jesus as the true way of salvation. Without baptism of water, faith is useless.

I believe that every word of the Bible is God-Breathed. This blessed book is the foundation of truth for faith and practice. If you ask this volunteer a question you will receive an answer from the Bible that is based upon a literal, normal interpretation, taking into account the grammar and culture of the time.


I have been in the ministry 20+ years. During that time I served as a Baptist youth pastor, christian counselor, church planter, and senior pastor.Please know thatI will be answering these questions from a biblical perspective, not a penticostal only perspective. (Since I am a Baptist, anyway) :)
