We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ; that He convicts the world of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, and baptizes him into the Church, which is the Body of Christ.
We believe that He indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer for godly living and service, and that He seals and keeps him until the Lord comes. We believe that He bestows spiritual gifts upon each person and fills those who are yielded to Him.
We believe that each believer has received one or more spiritual gifts so that he might exercise them for the strengthening and outreach of the Body of Christ. We believe that some of the gifts mentioned in Scripture were for the founding of the church and, therefore, were temporary in nature. While we recognize that God may give any gift to the church at any time, we believe that apostleship, prophecy and tongues are foundational gifts and are not being given today.
