ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
“We believe that the Holy Spirit is the power that sent by the Father in the name of Christ”
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the power (cf. Acts 1:8, TEV) sent by the Father in the name of Christ, to teach and remind His messengers of all things that Christ said (cf. Jn. 14:26), to help us in our weaknesses and infirmities (cf. Jn. 15:26; Rom. 8:26). The Holy Spirit strengthens, edifies, and comforts the Church Of Christ (cf. Eph. 3:16-17; Jn. 14:26). And though the Holy Spirit is a spirit, but the Scriptures never refer to it as “God the Holy Spirit” because the Holy Spirit is not God but one of the spirits being sent by God (cf. Rev. 5:6).
