What we believe



Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit was promised by the Father and confirmed by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers, even in this dispensation. (Matthew 3:11-12; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 2:38-39). The baptism of the Holy Spirit is evidenced by speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance; and is received subsequent to the new birth. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to live a sanctified life and be a personal witness (John 14:24-26; Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; I Corinthians 14:5, 14-15, 39).
