First Christian Church
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
After Jesus’ resurrection, he met his disciples in Galilee and said, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them that I commanded you and I am always with you to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). This message has become known as the “Great Commission.”
In John 14:16, the Holy Spirit is described as a helper, comforter and intercessor. Galatians 5:22 says that the fruit—or result—of fellowship with the Holy Spirit is joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and selfcontrol.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is an invaluable asset to believers. Based on the Great Commission, belivers are asked to share the gift of the Holy Spirit through belief in Jesus Christ with the entire world.
