About the Course
From the earliest Christian communities to our present day churches, ignorance, misunderstanding, and confusion abound when it comes to the third person of the Trinity—the Holy Spirit. Seedbed is pleased to introduce a new course into its Awakening Essentials series—How to Experience the Holy Spirit.
The course will be theological, but even more practical; explanatory, but even more experiential. Join J.D. Walt and Dan Wilt for this resource rich, three-week online course exploring the gift and person of the Holy Spirit —with insights that will help you grow in a practical, working, experiential relationship that impacts your daily walk as a follower of Jesus.
To deepen our understanding of the person, presence, and power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of awakened believers
- To unite and conform our expectations of the Holy Spirit’s work to the purposes manifest in the person of Jesus Christ, the image of God
To ground our spiritual experiences of God’s Spirit in the biblical framework for the Spirit’s divine purposes in our lives and in the world
