We hope that you will be able to make it to our FREE conference at First Baptist Church of Bagdad in Milton, FL, as we examine the Person & Work of the Holy Spirit.

What, or who, is The Holy Spirit? Is He a person in the same sense as The Father and The Son are? If so, what exactly is His ministry, and what role does He actually fulfill in the modern churches and Christians of today? If we hear the scriptures rightly, we know The Father sent His Son to redeem sinners, and together, they have sent the Spirit to abide in the redeemed. We know The Spirit is given to us to dwell within the saints as a deposit of the glory that is still yet to come.

According to scripture, there is no greater gift of God than the gift of God Himself. The Holy Spirit Himself is the gift and deposit of God to the believer. He is the Agent of our salvation, the Enabler of our sanctification, the Seal for our preservation, and the Guarantor of our glorification. His person and His work are indispensable to Christianity. Consider how everything was affected in the church on the day of Pentecost.

Tragically today, concerning this One who guides us into all truth, there is great misunderstanding. Around this One who unifies the Church, there is much disunity. Regarding this One who gives power and unction, there is both misrepresentation and quenching. The Church of God desperately needs a biblical understanding of the Spirit of God, lest we continue to grieve Him and live beneath the spiritual means He has provided.

Join us February 23-25 as various pastors and teachers of FirstLove Ministries press into this great theme of The Holy Spirit, that the churches may be strengthened in this foundational teaching of Christianity.
