The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, believers are empowered for Christian service and gifted for this service.

The Holy Spirit also enables believers to live a Christ-like life exhibiting Godly character. We believe in the operations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
