"Baptisms" is equivalent to chapter 3 of seven chapters in the book "A Child of God," designed to give the new believer in Christ an understanding of what salvation is and what our inheritance and position in Christ includes. This booklet will lead you through the meaning and importance of water baptism as an act of establishing your covenant with Christ and becoming part of His "death and resurrection." Then it deals with the aim and nature of the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an endowment of power to be an effective witness for Christ. It also includes a chapter about the importance of speaking in tongues, both with regard to your personal daily prayer life as well releasing the revelation gifts of the Holy Spirit in your life and ministry.
