THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR MINISTRY

Pentecost Sunday - Approximately one hundred twenty believers gathered together, waiting for the promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit. And God showed up in a significant way - a loud noise that drew the attention of many and evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit through visible tongues of fire and speaking other languages. This was the church equipped to declare the gospel of Jesus Christ. And it is promised to you - Spruce Grove Alliance Church. (Joel 2:28 - 29; Luke 11:13)
