Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 39 (07-01-19)
Bob George continues sharing from the gospel of John. He shared about how the disciples waited in Galilee to receive the promised Holy Spirit. That day they were born again. When they received the Holy Spirit, they were changed men. Before they were once cowardly and fearful, hiding in a room fearing for their lives, and now they are preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ boldly before men.

John the Baptist even spoke of two baptisms in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
