After Jesus ascended to heaven, the Holy Spirit was given to all believers empowering them to be effective witnesses in the world. This privilege and responsibility continues for all Christ followers until He returns.
Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8, 4:8, 4:31
We believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit, who indwells, seals and empowers all believers, baptizing them into the Body of Christ. We believe in the fullness of the Holy Spirit for all believers who ask in faith, enabling them to preach the Gospel in power.
John 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13; Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 1:8
We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit described in the New Testament are vital for the church and should be expressed within biblical guidelines.
Hebrews 2:4; Romans 11:29; 1 Corinthians 12,14
We believe that demonstrating the genuine love of Christ is more important than all the gifts, and without this love, all exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless.
1 Corinthians 13
