Connect with the life-changing ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Disciples of the Holy Spirit shows how a dynamic, close walk with God can be yours each day through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. As the energizer of your faith, the Spirit wants to bring you into a transforming communion with Christ. He wants to empower you to love your enemies, live without fear, and give generously out of an inner abundance. Your part? Simply yielding to him through the following spiritual disciplines:
- Solitude--helping you draw near to God for spiritual growth and vigor
- Surrender--helping you surrender to God's will and purpose for your life, preparing you for effective ministry
- Service--helping you move into fellowship with others and partnership with God in reaching a broken world
As you practice the spiritual disciplines, your concept of what it means to be a Christian will acquire a new, life-changing dimension. You'll grow closer to Jesus--and your life will increasingly reflect the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.
