According to the Christian Post, while the Southern Baptist denomination and other Mainline denominations are losing members and lagging, the Assemblies of God, a Pentecostal denomination, is booming.
As a Southern Baptist, I went to the article to discover what the Assemblies of God was doing differently than the Southern Baptist and other Mainline denominations. I really didn’t discover anything differently.
What I discovered, however, was that the Assemblies of God not only counts water baptisms but also Holy Spirit baptisms. I was taken aback here, to be honest. I didn’t know churches count Holy Spirit baptisms in the same category as water baptisms.
Am I missing something here?
