What We Believe about ...

God the Holy Spirit

Community Baptist Church believes the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old to write the Holy Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand the Scriptures 2 Timothy 3:16. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin and righteousness Ephesians 4:30. He calls men to the Saviour, and effects regeneration. At the moment of regeneration He baptizes every believer into the Body of Christ. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church 1 Corinthians 12:3-11; 1 Corinthians 12:13. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
