In the life of Alva Baptist Church we have come to the point of discussing the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. This first sermon in a series of sermons explores the earliest descriptions of receiving the promised Holy Spirit that we find in the book of Acts. Chapters 2, 8, 10 and 19.
We will look at the visit of Peter to Cornelius, the day of Pentecost, the visit of Paul to Ephesus, the conversion of the Samaritans through the preaching of Philip and the rebuke of Simon the Magi by Peter. The sermon is presented below in 4 parts of 10 minutes or less.
