Some Thoughts Concerning Spiritual Gifts & Prophecy

Two Sundays ago, we were blessed by a special moving of the Lord through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  As a church, we thoroughly believe that God still speaks to His church today.  We know that the Lord is ‘the same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Hebrews 13:8 NLT).  It only makes sense that the Lord would still speak to His church through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

  • to share with you some ‘behind the scenes’ thoughts from Sunday,
  • to help you develop a Biblical theology of the gifts of the Spirit,
  • and to encourage you to seek the Lord for more of His presence in your life.
