You Are Only Pentecostal If You Possess Pentecost

Acts 2:1-1
Topic: Holy Spirit Infilling
Many think of “Pentecostal” as being a denomination or a church we can belong to. However, “Pentecost” is something you experience, not something you join.

This same Spirit gives us the power to be witnesses (Acts 1:8). So, it is when we receive this same gift that was poured out at Pentecost that we become Pentecostal. [ read more... ]
