Pentecost – The Birth of the Church

Sermon from: Pastor Paul Bottrill-Chau

 

Today, in Pentecost Sunday join Pastor Paul in an exciting journey to the birth of the Church almost 2000 years ago, when the Holy Spirit was given to Jesus' followers and the Gospel started spreading from Jerusalem to every nation under heaven! Thus faithfully and graciously fulfilling His promises given in the Old Testament:

6 And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant—
7 these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
8 The Sovereign Lord declares— he who gathers the exiles of Israel: “I will gather still others to them besides those already gathered.”

Isaiah 56:6-8 (NIV)
