When we ask Christ to be our Savior, the next step is baptism. We follow Christ's example of when He had His cousin, John the Baptist, baptize Him in the river Jordan. At this point a dove descended, and God's voice said, "This is my Son, in whom I as well pleased". When we are baptized, we are proclaiming our faith publicly. It represents His death, his resurrection and his conquering death. It is at this point The Holy Spirit comes upon you.
