Rather than removing wicked immorality from their midst, the church at Corinth did not simply tolerate it, but they were found boasting about its presence within their fellowship. This wickedness had a serious leavening influence in the church body, that required disciplinary action on their part.

Baptized Into Christ‘s Body

The moment a sinner believes Christ died for his/her sins, and rose again, to the saving of one’s soul, that person is placed into the body of Christ, the Church, of which Christ is the Head. Spirit Baptism is NOT a second work, subsequent to salvation, but simultaneous to salvation.
