John's baptism was old testament. He was baptizing unto repentance. He was preparing the way for Jesus to start His ministry.(Matthew3:11)
---Rickey on 6/26/06

Yes two baptisms..(John's baptism with water for repentanc,e and Jesus' baptism of the Holy Ghost for power for witnessing) Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

#2 This one baptism is speaking of the one baptism that took place on the day of Pentecost when the Church on that day was all baptized into one body. There after when anyone receives the infilling of the Spirit, they are not actually baptized , but filled with the Spirit. There was actually only one Baptism, concerning the Spirit, as it says here in Scripture. There is also water baptism which is a outward showing that we have been saved and enter into Christ's death, burial and resurrection.
