Acts chapter 2 records the event that birthed the church—the falling of the Holy Spirit of God on his people at Pentecost. In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Steve Seamands explains how three elements present at Pentecost—wind, fire, and speaking in tongues, all represent the continual work that the Spirit of God wants to accomplish in and through his church.
