She is also a musician, music coordinator, and speaker.
The simple joys of life are her family, friends, and an occasional cup of Starbucks coffee.
So though the Bible says that unless one is born of the water and Spirit he CANNOT enter into the kingdom of God, all denominations but the Apostolic Pentecostal church preached that baptism was optional and not necessary.
-The Bible does in fact, teach that we should repent of our sins (and none of the major denominations disputed this).
I firmly believed this too and had experienced this and seen others experience this.
However, my family members pointed out to me that for someone to say you have to follow what this verse says in order to be saved is ludicrous; “God loves everybody and wants everybody to be saved,” they said.
It also teaches that we should be baptized by water in the name of God–that is, Jesus (Matt. Acts , Acts 19:5, I Peter ) and baptized with the Holy Spirit (or “filled with the Holy Ghost”).
John 3:5- “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Many scriptures throughout the book of Acts show that the one sign that accompanied the believers who were filled with the Spirit was tongues (Acts 2:1-4, Acts -48, Acts 19:1-6).
My only request is this: if you choose to read part of this post that you read all of it.-The ONLY denomination I could find that taught that receiving the Holy Spirit was an experience distinct from the moment you believe in God was the Apostolic Pentecostal Church. Furthermore, I’ve never been in a church that did not allow someone to attend because they didn’t follow a “dress code”.
