The Holy Spirit is the most abused person of the trinity — He is often neglected in favor of focusing on the Father and the Son; sometimes He is given too much focus and is assigned many experiences and events that He has no part in. Pastor Rod Bunton continues his series and helps us to think rightly about the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:1-13 On the day of Pentecost, men from every nation were gathered together listening to preaching about the mighty works of God and were bewildered when each heard it in their own native language.

Acts 2:1-4 Jesus made two promises before he ascended into Heaven: that he would build his church and that he would send the Holy Spirit to be with his believers. Pastor Rod Bunton begins a short series on the person and work of the Holy Spirit that fulfilled both promises.

Psalm 46 Martin Luther, critical to the Christian reformation movement, gained confidence in his position from the word of God, eventually penning the hymn that describes God as our fortress.

Luke 24:36-49 Those who met Jesus on the road to Emmaus were excited to tell the eleven disciples what they had just experienced. Pastor Rod Bunton introduces us to the scene that followed, where Jesus himself appears to the eleven to provides ample evidence of his promised resurrection.
Luke 24:13-35 Although reports of Jesus’ resurrection and appearance to Mary and the apostles had spread to many of his disciples, some were still confused about what had happened.

Luke 24:1-12 After the suffering, death, and burial of Jesus, some may have wondered if God the Father had changed His mind about His plans or maybe they just misunderstood what Jesus had been teaching them.

Luke 23:50-56 With all of the attention that is paid to the death and resurrection of Jesus, it seems that the burial is often overlooked.
