Be Equipped and Filled with the Holy SpiritAct 4:31

How does the Holy Spirit equip us?

He give us power to be witnesses (Acts 1:8)Being witnesses simply means sharing the gospel with others to populate the Kingdom.

Help Us Pray in Gods Will (Romans 8:26)When we feel like we do not know what to say in prayer or how, the Holy Spirit will reveal what to say and how to say it. The Holy Spirit  ignites our Passion. When we begin to align our hearts with HIM, He will ignite a passion within us for the things He's asking us to do.

He opens doors (Experiential)He can surprise us by opening doors. The Holy Spirit can also guide others to open opportunities for us.

He helps us conquer our fears (Experiential)When we're afraid of change or afraid to step beyond our comfort zone, He can help us conquer those fears.
He provides the skills we need (Experiential)The Holy Spirit can provide the skills we need. He only asks that we trust and take a step.

He Leads and Guides our FootstepsThe Bible says in Psalm 37:23 "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD." The Holy Spirit lead and guide our lives. The Holy Spirit also connects us with the right people in all facet of life. ((Experiential)).

How can one be Filled with the Holy Spirit?By surrendering your will to the Lord, and believing by faith to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

Pray this prayer:Lord, I surrender my will to Yours, and I ask that You help me to love like You, be like You and understand Your ways. Fill me with Your Spirit by faith and help me to be active in prayer. Show me my purpose and gifts, please. I surrender my lordship to Jesus' Lordship in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Bible reading. (KJV)

26. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

23. The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Tenets
of the Church of Pentecost

1. The Bible


We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scriptures. That the Bible is infallible in its declaration, final in its authority, comprehensive and all-sufficient in its provisions ( 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21)

2. The one True God


We believe in the existence of the One True God, Elohim, maker of the whole universe; undefinable, but revealed as Triune God- the  Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14; Genesis 1:26, one in nature, essence, and attributes- omnipotent (Deuteronomy 6:4;
Job 42:2; Revelations 19:6; Isaiah 46:9,10); omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12; 147:5); omniscient (Isaiah 46:9-10; Job 42:2; Acts 5:4, 5).

3. Mens depraved nature


We believe that all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23; Genesis 3:1-19; Isaiah 53:6),  and are subject to eternal punishment (Romans 6:23; Matthew 13:41,42), and  need repentance ( Acts 2:38;17:30; Matthew 4:17; Acts 20:21) and regeneration ( John 3:3, 5; Titus 3:5).

4. The Savior


We believe man's need of a
Savior has been met in the person of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 1:21; John 4:42;Ephesians 5:23; Philippians 2:6-11)


because of His Deity
(Acts 2:36; John 1:1;20:28; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13, 14; Isaiah 9:6)

Virgin Birth
(Isaiah 7;14;Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:25-26)

Sinless life
(John 8:46; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians5;21)

Atoning Death
(Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:22; 1 John 2;2)

Resurrection
(Acts 2:36; 10:39-40; Matthew 28:5-7; Acts 2:24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

and Ascension
(Acts 1:9-11; 2:33-36)

His abiding intercession
(Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34) 

and His Second coming to judge the living and the dead 
(Revelations 22:12, 20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 2 Timothy 4:1; Acts 1:11;10:42)

5. Repentance, Justification, Sanctification


We believe all men have to repent and confess their sins before God (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 17;30; Luke 15:7),
and believe in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ before they can be justified before God (Romans 4:25; 5:1). We believe in the sanctification of the believer through the working of the Holy Spirit ( 1 Corinthians 1:30; 6:11) and God's gift of eternal life to the believer ( Romans 6:23b; John 17:2, 3; 10:27, 28; 1
John 5:11-13).

6. The Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's supper


We believe in the sacrament of Baptism by immersion as a  testimony of a convert who has attained a responsible age of  13 years (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:9, 10; 16:16; Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38).


Infants and children are not baptized, but are dedicated to the Lord (Luke 2:22-24, 34; Mark 10:13-16). We believe in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion which should be partaken by all members who are in full fellowship (Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 26:21-29; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33).

7. Baptism, Gifts and Fruit of The Holy Spirit


We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues (Joel 2:28, 29; Acts 2:3, 4, 38-39; 10:44-46; 19:1-6).
And in the operation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12: 8-11; 28-30; Romans 12:6-8 and Galatians 5:22, 23).

8. Next Life


We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and the Resurrection of the dead, both the saved and the
unsaved. They that are saved to the resurrection of life and the unsaved to the Resurrection of damnation  (Acts 1:11; 10:42; Mark 13:26; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; Romans 2:7-11; 6:23).

9. Tithes and Offerings


We believe in tithing and in the giving of freewill offerings towards the cause of carrying forward the Kingdom of God. We believe that God blesses a cheerful giver (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:6-10; Hebrews 7:1-4; Matthew 23:23; Acts 20:35; 1 Corinthians 16:1,2).

10. Divine healing


We believe that the healing of sickness and disease is provided for God's people in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:7-13;16,17; James 5:14-16; Luke 13:10-16; Acts 10:38; Mark 16:17,18). However, the Church is not opposed to  medication by qualified medical practitioners.
