More About Us
We are a charismatic community, believing that God the Holy Spirit gifts his church to do the work of ministry in these last days. We believe the "baptism of the Spirit" is part of receiving Christ, as Paul wrote, "For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body--Jews or Greeks, slaves or free--and all were made to drink of one Spirit" 1 Corinthians 12:13.
There is one baptism of the Spirit, many fillings of the Spirit; He can be trusted to pour out gifts on believers, including tongues, prophecy, discerning of spirits, healings, miracles, words of knowledge and wisdom, faith, interpreting of tongues. We practice these gifts in our times together and in our daily lives. The Spirit bestows them as he chooses (1 Cor. 12:11). We do not believe any one of these gifts is the particular evidence of the "baptism of the Spirit" nor do we require speaking in tongues as a gift for everyone. Our attitude comes from 1 Corinthians 14, where Paul wrote:
- I want all of you to speak in tongues, but more to prophesy
- I want you to excel in gifts that build up the church, not an individual
- Tongues without interpretation is out of order in a public meeting
We trust and expect God to release power, presence, and supernatural signs and wonders as we continually seek the Spirit's filling. We also seek the fruit of the Holy Spirit as he transforms our character into that of Jesus Christ.
