The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, equal with the Father and the Son and of the same substance.  We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgment; bears witness to the truth; is the agent of the new birth; and that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses to, sanctifies, and helps the believer; that He takes up His abode within the individual at the time of regeneration, and thus indwells every born-again believer; that He infills the believer for service upon each experience of surrender and dedication.  We believe that the Holy Spirit testifies concerning Jesus Christ and never leads any person at any time contrary to the teaching of the Bible.  Acts 5:1-4; John 16:7-11.
