We believe in the PERSON and WORK of Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and in the congregation. We believe Holy Spirit reveals the heart of God to mankind, convict’s humanity of sin and guides us into all truth. We believe that Holy Spirit is to be recognized, honored, obeyed and that we are commanded not to grieve Him. We believe Holy Spirit empowers us to complete the work of the ministry through wisdom, callings, giftings, skills, etc. We also believe in the Baptism of Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
