Ekklesia Baptism

Matthew 28:19‭-‬20 TPT

When they heard this they were crushed and realized what they had done to Jesus. Deeply moved, they said to Peter and the other apostles, "What do we need to do, brothers?" Peter replied, "Repent and return to God, and each one of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus, the Anointed One, to have your sins removed. Then you may take hold of the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:37‭-‬38 TPT

3000 people gave their lives to Jesus and were baptized. The baptism of the Holy Spirit saves us. Why do we have a tank? An outward sign of an inward change. 

Just as the human body is one, though it has many parts that together form one body, so too is Christ. For by one Spirit we all were immersed and mingled into one single body. And no matter our status—whether we are Jews or non-Jews, oppressed or free—we are all privileged to drink deeply of the same Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:12‭-‬13 TPT

God designed communion to be an intimate a.ct with him and with one another.
