In brief, I believe you are confusing baptism of the Holy Spirit with Jesus' water baptism of the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20). The following article analyzes the details of the various baptisms mentioned in the Bible, noting conflicts that prohibit baptism of the Holy Spirit from applying to modern times (outside of the first century):

If you would like to discuss this in more detail, I will be happy to do so, as time permits. However, for starters, I would ask that you read and consider the above article, as it contains the kernel of my response. Unfortunately, I do not have time to restate many of the arguments that are already contained therein.
Just as a side clarification, I do not believe John 3:1-8 or I Corinthians 12:13 refer to the baptism of the Holy Spirit, as referenced in Acts 1-2, 10-11. However, I would not debate that directly, since that conclusion proceeds from those derived in the above article.
I look forward to hearing from you. I will be happy to respond, but I will be fairly slow in responding due to previous commitments.
May God help us to have a sincere love of the truth,
(P.S. I appreciate and agree with your admonishment to be diligent and honest in our search for the truth. Thanks for the exhortation.)
