…. the Holy Spirit is God, the Lord and has always existed along with the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit as triune God. The Holy Spirit carries out the work of the Trinity and is the One who brings about the eternal will of God in heaven and on the earth. He is the one promised by Jesus when he said ‘I will send another like me’. He is our counselor, advocate and teacher and the one who reveals all truth. It is only through the power of the Spirit that the Church will be all He intends. It is the Spirit who indwells believers enabling them to live holy lives and to minister supernaturally. The Baptism of the Spirit is given according to scripture as a distinct experience to salvation and is not intended to be a one off experience but a ‘life in the Spirit’ evidenced by both the fruits of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit.
