Is Baptism in the Holy Spirit
in the order of "Converstion, SANCTIFICATION, Spirit Baptism" from Frank Macchia
Given by the Holy Spirit
The Fruit of the Spirit reflects positive changes in our character as someone in whom the Spirit is at work
Not the result of the baptism in the Holy Spirit but of the presence of the Holy Spirit who guides every believer in Jesus
W/o it, we will never have the character necessary to be properly used by God
