  6. 6. What Is The Baptism Of The Holy Spirit? When Jesus was preparing to return to heaven after His death and resurrection, He instructed His followers to wait in Jerusalem for the baptism in the Holy Spirit. After this baptism, they would be ready to take the message of Jesus to the ends of the earth. The promise was for, “all whom the Lord calls”.
  7. 7. We Will Not Sacrifice The Message For The Sake Of Personal Preference Jesus was doing the work of His Father, which was to seek and save lost people. Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations.
  8. 8. Communion: Remembering Jesus In All Circumstances On Jesus’ last night with His disciples before His death, He ate the Passover meal with them. Jesus commanded us to eat this meal in His memory. We are advised to prepare our hearts before we eat the communion.
  9. 9. Communion: Remembering Jesus In All Circumstances In Review... Jesus instituted Communion at the passover meal. He established a new covenant. Communion is eaten in Jesus’ memory. In addition to remembering His death, we look forward to His return.

  11. 11. What Are The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit? In the body of Christ, each member belongs to all the others. God’s people are to be prepared for works of service.
  12. 12. What Are The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit? The gifts of the Holy Spirit are abilities given by the Holy Spirit to the church, the body of Christ. Just as a nose, a hand and a foot have different roles in the physical body, God gifts members of the church to function differently within the body of Christ.
