Garry spoke at our AGM about the need for ongoing development in our individual and corporate lives, looking especially at 3 areas:
what makes us distinctively Pentecostal
In our Bible studies on the book of Acts, we have been seeing how these three strands work together to enable church growth. The early disciples were revolutionised by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, and we need this outpouring on us too if we are to see the signs and wonders which enabled people to see and begin to understand God’s miraculous power among them. They were devoted to prayer and to each other and sought to speak about Jesus everywhere they went. We need to be people who are changed by the Holy Spirit, fired up and sent out by Him into our workplaces, neighbourhoods and communities with the good news of Jesus Christ. Nothing less will change our nation and bring growth to our church.
