Hi Frances
Thank you for your reply it seams we are thinking along the same lines that there is more to baptism than just a church ceremony although this may server an outward show to others that a person has committed themselves to God.

so what is the spiritual baptism spoken of by John the one of spirit and fire how dose our Lord baptise us with these gifts I believe the first step is being washed clean this is achieved with the word of God as Paul makes plain.

Eph 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Eph 5:26  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
       


The washing of water by the word  this means to me that we need a knowledge of the word of God to immerse ourselves in the word and die to self to live with Christ.

Love and Peace
Dave
