WE ARE COMMUNITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Our purpose is simple yet powerful.  We are called to Love God, to Love People, to Seek & Save the Lost, and to Serve our Community.  Founded in 1983 by Bishop James J. Fisher, The Community of the Holy Spirit has always identified with the traditional church, yet we are not bound to the traditions of men. We preach the ideal, yet we minister to the exception. We are conservative in our Christian theology, yet we are progressive in relating to all people. We cross lines, tear down walls, raise eyebrows, and demonstrate the character of Christ to the world. 
 
We are not a denomination, yet we relate to all denominations. We are a bridge from the old to the new. And we bridge from the new back to the old.  The Community of the Holy Spirit is truly a place where we can Come Together In The Unity of the Holy Spirit.

OUR BELIEFS
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God.  (II Timothy 3:16)
  • We believe in one God, Maker of all things who eternally exists in Trinity as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  (I John 5:4-7; John 1:1-14)
  • We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.  (I Corinthians 15:3; I Peter 2:23-24; John 3:16)
  • We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.  We believe that salvation comes by confession of sin and faith in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God, to believe in the heart that Jesus died and rose from the dead, and to proclaim with the mouth that He is Lord. (Romans 3:21-30; Galatians 4:4-7)
  • We believe baptism in water is a direct commandment of our Lord in the Great Commission. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39).
  • We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:1-4).
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the church as the body of Christ made up of believers in Jesus Christ, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return. (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14; 1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible Word of God; inerrant as originally given, verbally inspired by God, the complete and sufficient revelation of His will for salvation and conduct.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto damnation. (John 5:24-29)
  • We believe healing is for the physical ills of the human body. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today. (James 5:14,15; Mark 16:18; Isaiah. 53:4,5; Matthew. 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24)
  • We believe in the imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 21:1-27)
  • We believe in the Great Commission; to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth. Amen.
