The Apostle Philip’s mission in Samaria

Acts of the Apostles 8: 11-12 They (Samarians) paid attention to him (Simon the magician) because he had astounded them by his magic for a long time, but once they began to believe Philip as he preached the Good News about the Kingdom of God and the Name of Jesus Christ, men and women alike were baptized.

Acts of the Apostles 8: 14-17 Now when the Apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the Word of God, they sent them Peter and John, who went down and prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for It had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had only been baptized in the Name of the LORD Jesus. Then they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
