What are the Adventist's beliefs about the role of the Holy Spirit in baptism?
The fundamental belief of the Seventh-Day Adventist church on baptism states.
Baptism is a symbol of our union with Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, and our reception of the Holy Spirit
Practically the baptism of the Holy Spirit and baptism for repentance can be separated. In regards to the baptism of the Holy Spirit Adventists do not expect a physical manifestation or 'charisma' experience to happen in the person and it is a much more personal experience in experiencing the presence of God in their life. This experience often proceeds and is a catalyst for the water baptism.
