God the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Divine Trinity who convicts the world of sin (righteousness and judgment)

that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead

that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Christ; that He

  • indwells them permanently
  • seals them unto the day of final redemption
  • bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and
  • fills (controls) those who are yielding to Him.

Every believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God.
