HOLY SPIRIT DEPENDENT

We value the Holy Spirit; we know and believe the Holy Spirit empowers us, comforts us and teaches us all things.
• Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on You; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
