Experiencing the Spirit Fully

There is power in the presence of God
so we seek to be in communion with him

One thing that makes Church of the Spirit different from many other Community Churches is our love for the sacraments. Those are the ways in which we do more than talk about God, we experience him for ourselves. For instance, in Baptism and Communion we find God changes us, helping us to grow closer to him. We hold confirmation services for those who want to reaffirm their faith in God after having been away for a while … and we also offer you prayers for healing and the Sacrament of Anointing. All these are special ways you can encounter the power of God’s presence.

Accept no substitutes. There is simply a great power when God shows up. So instead of talking about him, we live with him, and let his Spirit fill us up. To experience the fullness of joy and life Jesus promised, start by being filled to overflowing with God’s Spirit. As Jesus told us, “It’s Spirit which gives life.”
