The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit In this study, you will learn about the person, ministry, and work of the Holy Spirit in Scripture. You will develop a framework for personally experiencing the Holy Spirit more intimately; learn what it means to be led by the Sprit as well as how to live the Spirit-filled life. Also, you will learn about the gifts and operation of the Spirit, and finally what the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is all about. It’s time to encounter and experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh, new way—to meet the God you may have never known.
