SERMON: May 15th, 2016 Guest Speaker Dr. Stan Helton
Today we welcome Dr. Stan Helton, president of Alberta Bible College on this day of Pentecost Sunday. Dr. Helton shared that he was a VBS kid and because a lady took interest in him when he was six years old, his life became shaped by that moment. Dr. Helton read from Acts 2 where the birth of the church began. Through Acts and throughout the entire Bible we learn that the mission of God was to 1. form a distinct people (today we are ‘the church’) 2. to live a life that looks like God 3. for the sake of the world where we would treat others and this world better. In Numbers 11:29 God’s purpose was that His Spirit would be poured out to all His people. God wants to live in us so closely that He dwells within us. In Acts 2, with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, God has come home.
