Ministry in the Power of the Holy Spirit


Ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit can refer to many things, including the signs and wonders that often attend missional ministry. It also encourages the love of Jesus and encompasses the empowerment for holy living among his disciples. In this Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Steve Seamands encourages us to consider John Wesley as a model for how to responsibly welcome the ministry of the Holy Spirit among us.

Nicene Creed: And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father [and the Son]; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
