The Coming of the Holy Spirit
The Church tends to huddle together, enjoying each other's company, & sharing life. But the Holy Spirit wants to spread the good news of the Kingdom and Christ. When persecution hit the Church in Jerusalem, the disciples were forced to flee outward throughout Judea and Samaria. Philip brought the good news to the Samaritans, healing, delivering, and baptizing them. However, they did not receive the Spirit till Peter & John laid hands on them. The Spirit always works outside our neat boxes.

By Pastor Glenn Pease If Simon the Zealot was a right-winger and Matthew the Publican a left- winger, Philip was a cautious middle of the roader. He had both liberal and conservative leanings.

The mission to spread the Gospel to every people, nation, and language on earth is still our mission today. Pastor Isaiah recaps a recent trip to Guatemala for that purpose and shares how our church is living out this aspect of our calling to help reach the world today!
