Baptism in the Spirit (BHS) is the second theme to be addressed by the ICCRS Doctrinal Commission, following the earlier document Guidelines on Prayer for Healing.
Like the first, this is a pastoral document, primarily written as a pastoral aid for leaders in the Renewal.
It is not primarily a theological document, but it needs to have a sound theological basis understandable to pastoral leaders.
It therefore contains a section with theological reflection (Part III).
The methodology followed is similar to that in the first document, moving from a description of the contemporary reality being addressed through biblical, patristic and theological reflections to a closing pastoral commentary and guidelines.
