Today is Pentecost Sunday, the day in which we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church. Let us remember today that it is Jesus’ church and not “my church.” This is the universal church established by Jesus. Key Text: Acts 2:38-47 NLT
At Pentecost, we celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit, which became available to Jesus followers. Christians believe that a personal (not private) relationship with God is possible because God comes to dwell WITHIN the heart, soul and life of every believer as the Holy Spirit. You are invited to receive the Holy Spirit and life into the new life made available because of the Holy Spirit.
