HOLY SPIRIT

The third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, is fully divine and co-equal with the God the Father and God the Son(Gen. 1:2, Acts. 5:3).  In His work, He regenerates people to new life in Christ, indwells them and enables them to understand the Scriptures, live the Christian life and seals them for the Day of Christ‘s return (Luke 12:12, Jn. 14:26, Eph. 1:13-14, 4:30).  His ministry is to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment but more specifically to the Christian, He guides, comforts and provides a real presence in the life of the believer (Jn. 14:16-17, 16:8 Gal. 4:6).  He is a gift (Jn. 16:7-14, 2 Tim.1:14) and He bestows spiritual gifts to the believer and to the church, to empower the preaching and demonstration of the Gospel (1 Cor. 12:3-11, Luke 24:39, Acts. 4:31).
