Briefly:
Today: Only ONE Baptism = "BY" The ONE Spirit = God's OPERATION,
Spiritually Identifying members In (The ONE Body Of) CHRIST!!
(Ephesians 4:5; Colossians 2:12; Galatians 3:27;
Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13 KJB!)
-------------------------------------------------
Expanded Version, For your Edification/spiritual Building Up!, follows:

God’s Doctrine of ONE Baptism Under HIS GRACE!

Grace and Peace! To ALL Dear Readers who have Persevered
through the many previous baptisms, and have come to this
point of Weighing ALL Of God’s Scriptural Evidence In HIS Very
Critically Important Doctrine Of Baptisms!

Is God’s Doctrine of ONE Baptism, as many think, water?

We are Spiritually Identified With (Baptized Into) CHRIST, HIS
Crucifixion, HIS Death, HIS Burial, And HIS Resurrection!

(Sounds like The Greatest News I've Ever heard!), so…

...some of The Confirming Scriptures:

Romans 6:3 ...Baptized Into JESUS CHRIST...Baptized Into HIS Death!

Romans 6:4 ...Buried With HIM By Baptism Into Death!

Romans 6:6 ...Crucified (JESUS' Baptism?) With HIM! - And also:

“For as many of you as Have Been BAPTIZED Into
CHRIST
Have Put On CHRIST!” (Galatians 3:27!)

How does a physical ritual "Baptize us into a Spiritual Organism"?

In addition, there is NO water Found “In God's Context” Of Any Of
These Baptism Passages! }, Precious friend(s), do you Agree With God?
Or, can we simply Add/Infer water into HIS Context "to fit" another view?

With The SuperNatural Help Of The Blessed Holy Spirit, And Comparing
Spiritual Scripture WITH Spiritual Scriptures (1 Corinthians 2:13!),
This ONE Baptism Makes us Spiritually:

“COMPLETE In HIM, WHO Is The Head Of ALL principality and power!”
(Colossians 2:10!), having:

“...The Circumcision Made WITHOUT HANDS { God’s Operation? }
...The Circumcision Of CHRIST!” (Colossians 2:11!), And Spiritually:

“Buried With HIM In BAPTISM, Wherein Also ye Are Risen With
HIM Through The Faith Of THE OPERATION Of God, Who
Hath RAISED HIM From The Dead!” (Colossians 2:12!), AND
Further:

“Not by works of righteousness {water?} which we have done, But
According To HIS Mercy HE SAVED us By The WASHING of REGENERATION
{Operation Of God’s BLOOD? }, And RENEWING Of The Holy Ghost!” (Titus 3:5!)

“Which HE Shed on us Abundantly Through JESUS CHRIST our SAVIOUR!”
(Titus 3:6!)

This Should “Complete The Spiritual OPERATION” of The Triune GodHead,
But, Are we done “Comparing ALL The Scriptures” Of The ONE Baptism?
All diligent students Should see That, In:

The Revelation Of The Mystery (Gospel Of GRACE For "us Today”),
with a Prayerful and Careful study, Rightly Divided, God Teaches:

Ephesians 4:5 KJB, Clearly States: “...One LORD, one faith, ONE BAPTISM...”
{perchance Paul was mistaken, and he really meant two?}

So, What Saith The Holy Scriptures “In It's Context,” About This ONE Baptism?:

“Endeavouring to keep The Unity Of The Spirit in the bond of Peace!
There is One Body, and One Spirit, even as ye are called in One hope
of your calling; One LORD, One faith, ONE Baptism, One God And Father
of ALL, Who Is Above ALL, and through All, and In you All!”
(Ephesians 4:3-6!)

Are we All Really "endeavouring to keep this "Unity"?

Now, unless we are mistaken, there are 3 choices of understanding
God’s Context In This Critically Important Passage!:

1) all “physical” { Wrong "unity" } = Destruction of “HIS Context," agreed?

2) “combo” of 6 Spiritual + 1 “physical,” lifted “out, and”

“isolated”​

From HIS Context, to be interpreted as: “water” baptism =
Destruction { NO Unity! } Of God's Context, agreed?

3) These Seven Unities Of God's Spirit are All Spiritual, so
now we kindly/humbly ask, Is God’s ONE Baptism “Spiritual”?

Let us, Finally:
Make ONE More "Scriptural Comparison" (1 Corinthians 2 : 13!), And Ask:
“What Saith The Scripture?” And, The ONE Answer we hear, From God, IS:

For 'BY' ONE Spirit are we all Baptized Into ONE Body, whether
we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; And Have
Been ALL Made To Drink Into ONE Spirit!"
(1 Corinthians 12:13 KJB!)

UNITED! Or Severely Divided?

If This "ONE BAPTISM" Is Not = The OPERATION Of God,”
then we would have to concede that it is:

men & religion with ‘water' that saves us – any takers?

{ Please advise: Is it not sin to take God’s “Spiritual Operation" Of "ONE
Baptism," and for men To “ADD to IT Or Replace IT with” water? Is this
[ Wrongly Combining, instead of "Rightly Dividing, God's Word of Truth" ]
not why the “weak And Severely Divided Church” is Thoroughly Confused? }

“For God Is not The Author of confusion, but Of PEACE,
as in ALL churches of the saints!” (1 Corinthians 14:33 KJB!)
Amen?

Thus, All True Believers who come to God, In The Way God Has
Prescribed In His HOLY WORD, By The Gospel Of The GRACE Of God,
And Place Complete 100% faith In:

The LORD JESUS CHRIST, In HIS Precious BLOOD, And In HIS Resurrection!

Will ALWAYS have spiritual UNITY!, In:

God's “Spiritual OPERATION” Of Eternal Salvation For EverMore! Amen?

Are All in "agreement With God" with your Final Verdict Of HIS Truth!?
(1 Corinthians 1:9-18 cp Romans 15:6; Philippians 1:27!)

IF so, could that Really be the start of practical earthly UNITY Of
The Already "spiritually UNITED ( members one of another!” ), Church
{ In Heaven! }, Which Is HIS Body, Of CHRIST!? (Ephesians 4:3 KJB!)

And, That "fellowship Based On" our mutual FAITH In CHRIST!
{ instead of VARIOUS Unsound water doctrines! } Amen?

Please pray for this “Unity Of The Spirit In The Bond Of Peace!” And,
thanks kindly For Your Patient Review of This Critically Important study!

ONE BAPTISM Video IF you wish...

And, Please Be Very RICHLY Blessed!
==========================================================
LORD JESUS, thank You for This Precious Word Of Truth That Has Solved my
"confusion." May This Also be used for the Encouragement of Many others.
Amen.

The One Baptism spoken of in Scripture is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Water baptism deals with the earthly person(s). It is an act of obedience.

(in my opinion)

how to know you've got baptism first part and second?
Precious friend, A Very Warm Welcome to Chat. Please clarify your question:
Do you believe baptism has TWO parts?

Please Be Very RICHLY Encouraged, Enlightened, Exhorted, And Edified In
The LORD JESUS CHRIST, And In His Word Of Truth, Rightly Divided!

GRACE And Peace...

how to know you've got baptism first part and second?
it is like christs baptism baptism has never changed from what God established through John the Baptist TV is is baptism established by God

John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judæa, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬


“Now when all the people were baptized, ( in water ) it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:21-22‬ ‭

baptism is the same now it’s for remission of sins the Holy Ghost is a gift of belief

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:38‬ ‭

just like Jesus and all the people did. The confusion I think comes in here

“I indeed have baptized you with water:

but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

John was talking about pentocost when the soirit was shed forth johns words are understood here

“and, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭1:4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Then it was fulfilled here


“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:1-

That’s when he baptized then with the spirit. All Of them had been baptized for remission of sins beforehand now they received the promise

I’m not sure why people have an issue with the only baptism described in the Bible but if water was now not necassary. Why did they keep doing it ? Commanding it immediately upon conversion ?

After they received the soirit from Jesus foretold By John

“And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And be commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭8:36-38‬ ‭KJV‬‬

same baptism in water

“And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.

Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭10:45-48‬ ‭

same baltism in water commanded by Peter already bekng himself full
Of the Holy Ghost

it doesn’t change because God already established baltism for remission of sins. The argument against it are based on berses that don’t specifically mention water like this

“..Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.

And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭9:17-18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

because this doesn’t specifically say “ Paul was baptized in water for remission “ is their logic that water isn’t involved even though it’s already well established and there’s no need to keep saying “ baltism in water for remission of sins “

it’s already established and there’s just one baptism established in scripture by the baptist John who came preceding Jesus

“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism,”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:4-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Either we have to say jesusnlartook of the wrong baptism , Peter commanded ten wrong baptism , and real baptism is some other thing not written in scripture that somehow erases what is written plainly in scripture every reference to baptism is referring to the one and only baptism for remission of sins in Jesus name

Baltism isn’t even a complex matter it’s plain and repetitively wrotten for us

5For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his
Thanks, Precious friend. No water in God's Context Here, Correct?

"Know ye not, that so many of us as were Baptized into Jesus Christ​
were baptized into His Death? Therefore we are Buried With Him By​
Baptism into Death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead​
By The Glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness​
of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of His​
Death, we shall be also in the likeness of His Resurrection:"​
(Romans 6:3-5)​

Thus, Under GRACE Today, It Is "God's OPERATION To Be Baptized Into Christ":

1) Today, There Is Only ONE Baptism (Ephesians 4:5)

2) It Is The OPERATION Of God (Colossians 2:12) (18-point study)

a) Into His Death (Romans 6:3)
b) Buried, and Risen With Him (Colossians 2:12)

3) By God, The Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13)

Conclusion: As "works" would Cancel GRACE (Romans 11:6), it
Can Not be water of yesterday's law (#'s 4, 9, & 10 here). Amen?

GRACE And Peace...
