The Holy Spirit: God's personal, empowering presence

The DCV elders have discerned that the Lord has invited our church into a season of being energized for ministry and mission. The source of this energy does not come from within ourselves. It doesn’t come from digging deep, pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, or another dose of caffeine.

It’s the very Spirit of God that energizes us to both demonstrate and proclaim the Kingdom of God!

The Hebrew word for "Spirit" in the Old Testament is ruakh, meaning breath or wind. Like breath or wind, the Spirit is God’s personal animating, creative energy.

Jesus understood the Spirit in this way: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The Holy Spirit is God’s personal presence in our lives that empowers us to be Kingdom witnesses wherever we go!

Join us this Summer for a sermon series on the Holy Spirit where we will study the third member of the Trinity in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. We will also have plenty of space for Holy Spirit ministry on Sunday mornings to seek the Spirit’s empowerment in our lives and the life of our church.
