To rober; I might make a mistake if I looked for it myself, so please tell me chapter and verse. Also I looked up your profile, Praise the Lord for what he has done for you. Tell us about your recent experience of being "filled" with the Holy Spirit.

"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." Here we have the very words that Philip accepted from the Eunch as disqualifying him to be baptized. Are most of our churches following this pattern given in Scripture?

It doesn't matter if you are talking about water baptism or the infilling of the Spirit, the only eligibility required is that you be born again. If you are born again, water baptism or the infilling of the Spirit won't make you more saved or less saved if you don't take part in it.

First you must confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth and repent of your sins.

Biblically speaking it says "repent and be baptized". That seems quite clear. And they baptized them right away, not after a bunch of classes about church membership and their responsibilty to tithe etc. On the day of Pentecost they preached and baptized 3000 people. They were not screened very good either.LOL. A far cry what we see now in mainstream churches.

Anyone who has beem born again,saved by believing and confessing Jesus.Romans 10:9,10. SEE: Acts 8:35-38 for an example.

Biblically what is required for Baptism (water Baptism that is) is that one be born-again - that is that one believes that Jesus died on the Cross for their sins and that He rose from the dead. Water Baptism is symbolic of being crucified with Christ, buried with Him and rising from the dead with Him -- all because one is in Christ.
