What We Believe About The Holy Spirit

Millersville Bible Church:

The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and enable people to repent and believe in Christ. At the moment of faith, the Holy Spirit permanently indwells each believer, giving him new life, uniting him with the body of Christ, and giving him special abilities with which he can serve the Church. We believe the miraculous gifts were authenticating signs given to the early church to confirm the teaching of the apostles. They were foundational gifts and are not needed today because we have the complete revelation of God in the Scriptures. In His ongoing ministry in the life of the believer, the Holy Spirit provides inner assurance that he is God’s child, power to overcome temptation and sin, and growth in Christlike character. In everything, the Holy Spirit’s primary mission is to glorify Jesus Christ through the worship and witness of the Church.
