Life in the Spirit Seminar

What is a Life in the Spirit Seminar?
A Life in the Spirit Seminar is a journey that one undergoes when he or she has that desire to enter into a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ through the release of the Holy Spirit.

Who can take part in a Life in the Spirit Seminar?
The Life in the Spirit Seminar is open to anyone who has that zeal to want to know more about Christ in a deeper way. 

What benefit does one gain in doing a Life in the Spirit Seminar?
In addition to gaining a more intimate relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit now becomes your personal advocate. Throughout this journey, the Holy Spirit is released in your life and you may experience particular gifts (see 1 Cor 12:4-11). This is where you are now 'baptized in the spirit' and your work begins in the army of the Lord. This 'work' we speak of involves you bringing others to know Christ in the same way that you now know him. 

Why should I do a Life in the Spirit Seminar?
As mentioned above, you and Jesus begin or grow deeper in an intimate relationship of love . Your thoughts and actions are inspired by the Spirit of God and you feel even more in love with God, his word and you now try to become more like him. In this consecrated life, when you face trials and tribulations, the Power of God's Spirit living in you will give you that strength to persevere. Also, others will see a difference in you by the Joy and Love of Christ in which you execute. Your life now becomes a living testimony. 

What happens at these Seminars?
Each session starts off the same; with Praise & Worship, then a Speaker will give his or her sharing on the specific theme for that session and then the candidates are broken up into groups with their team leaders and they will do a short recap on the talk that was given and the team leaders will then explain what they are to expect when living a "Life in the Spirit". However, for the Healing Service and the Lay on of Hands Session, the format will alter.

The Life in the Spirit Seminar is divided into 8 sessions.
Session 1: God's Love
Session 2: Salvation
Session 3: The New Life
Session 4: Receiving God's Gift
Session 5: Healing Service
Session 6: Baptism in the Spirit (The Laying on of Hands)
Session 7: Growth in the Spirit
Session 8: Transformation

The Life in the Spirit Seminar begins this Sunday (June 2nd) and continues Every Sunday until July 28th in St. Joseph R.C. Church from 3PM to 6:30PM. Remember to walk with your bibles and your note books to record all the Spiritual Knowledge you will receive!

*"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.  There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone, it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines." -   1 Cor. 12:4-11
