The Holy Spirit in the Apostles' Creed
"I believe in the Holy Spirit..." What are we really professing when we say that we believe in the Holy Spirit? In this Groundwork series we study the third section of the Apostles' Creed and the Bible passages which inform it, to better understand who the Holy Spirit is and how he works in our lives and in the broader life of the church. Understanding the third person of the Trinity makes it easier for us to recognize and partner with the Holy Spirit for God's kingdom work.
