The Holy Spirit. 1 of 3 parts in the trinity and sent to accomplish God's work within us. We sing about the Holy Spirit, we talk about it, but do we understand fully what is means to have the Holy Spirit dwell within us. Our series, Ghost Stories: Adventures with the Holy Spirit will take us on a journey of understanding who the Holy Spirit is in Scripture and how critical it is for us to understand the power that has been given to us. Who lives within us, who leads us, who empowers us... the Holy Spirit is present and we are embarking on an adventure to discover what God's word says and how we respond in understanding and prayer.

WE can do “it” we can increase and create a healthier life, that is physically, mentally, and spiritually well for us, because Christ is in me.
