The early church was born in a demonstration of the power of God. Not through great public speaking, theological debate, or human charisma. Their strength was not in magnificent buildings and large sprawling campuses. They did not rely upon enlarging bank accounts and influential connections.

The Apostle Paul wrote plainly, “And my speech, and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (I Corinthians 2:4-5). Paul further stated, “. . . the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power” (I Corinthians 4:20).

Jesus left the church with the great mission of reaching the world with the Gospel of the Kingdom. This task will not be accomplished by mere words alone. As in the early church, the church today must understand her authority in Christ and must be armed with our God-given tools and keys to demonstrate the power of God. This includes the operation of Spiritual gifts within the body, a fully functioning five-fold ministry, and various signs, wonders and miracles occurring as the Spirit itself directs. They ". . . went forth and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word with signs following” (Mark 16:20).

This is God’s method for effective ministry, preaching the word, and, the Lord working with us, confirming His Word with miraculous signs.

The world is attracted to Jesus when they see visible results of the power of the Gospel which has changed your life.  There is tremendous power available to each and every believer through the Holy Ghost Baptism!
