Matthew 3:11 (ESV)
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
1 Corinthians 12:13 (ESV)
13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.
We come from different religious backgrounds- some think and believe and practice that the baptism in the Holy Spirit results in speaking in tongues. That is the evidence.
Others believe that the baptism is when we receive Christ and being born again we are baptized spiritually into the body of Christ, the church. There is no outward evidence. And then others just ignore Him. No matter what persuasion you come from this is for sure:
We are immersed( baptized) in the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit.
