Apostolic Update: Since April 1, 2012 we’ve had just under 25 receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and many of those baptized in the name of the Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins! On average, our attendance has been up around 115-118 people for our 2:20pm service with many of those returning guests who are being plugged in to various “connect points” within our church such as: life groups, bible studies, and discipleship classes.
Not only have we seen people being plugged in after experiencing the New Birth by receiving the Spirit and being baptized in Jesus name, but we have seen several physical healings take place, deliverance from addictions, and those who have been bound by various aliments be set-free by the power of the Spirit. Not only have some been delivered from something, but other have been brought into to something greater than what they have ever experienced before: greater life, greater joy, greater peace, God doesn’t have to only deliver us from something, but He can also take us into an area of something “greater” for our lives…and it has been happening on a weekly basis.
Those who come are experiencing the awesome power of God as they feel His power draw them closer to Him. This is what it’s about, it’s who we are, and it’s why we do “church.” And because of that, to God be the glory.
