The experience of baptism or filling with the Holy Spirit is about the Christian's need for power & confidence in the Christian life. In the book of Acts the filling with the Spirit is not a reward for being holy! It is a free gift given to empower weak & ordinary people to live lives they otherwise would not have lived. In this message Pastor John shares about his first experience of being baptised with the Holy Spirit & how it changed him. Then he goes on to deal with two questions that are often asked. 1. Is baptism with the Holy Spirit a once off experience? 2. Is speaking in tongues the essential initial physical evidence of baptism with the Holy Spirit?
