the Bible is a complex book with many themes in it. All of these themes have one purpose and one purpose only, the saving of Man’s Soul. That is God’s ultimate desire, but that desire can only be fulfilled His Way. Strangely His Way relies on us. Without us voluntarily offering to love him as he loves us, you can not be saved. Something to remember, and this is important. It is impossible for God to make you love him. You have to do that yourself, and there is a way to show God you are willing to take that step, and that is what we are all about. Because we have been there, right at the point of making that commitment
The history of The Church began on the Day of Pentecost when a crowd of Jews from all nations were gathered in Jerusalem for an important day on their calendar.
On that day the Holy Spirit was poured out on mankind for the first time. Those that witnessed this event heard those that received the Holy Spirit Speak in Tongues.
This was the very first time in the history of mankind this had ever happened, but not the last. In Acts chapter 2 Peter recounted events leading up to that moment. At the end of his discourse he was asked a question, “what shall we do?”. There was a recognition that things had changed, and the listeners wanted to know how to be a part of that change.
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Absolutely nothing has changed. We are still the same church that began on the day of pentecost.
