From the cup of coffee at daybreak to the late night movie marathon with my wife and the radical morning service and awesome Discipleship Training in between, I love the Body of Christ, and I am thankful to be connected with the amazing people at Emmanuel Fellowship Church.
If any of you missed yesterday’s service, I strongly encourage you to listen to the podcast of the message. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a foundational teaching of who we are as a congregation, and I want each of us to be able to wrap our minds around what our hearts are chasing!
Grace and Peace to all of you!
“The Baptism in the Holy Spirit,” part 3 of Pastor Eric’s “Experiencing the Holy Spirit” series is now available online. Click to listen now.
