240 The Holy Spirit and the Church
The Holy Spirit is revealed in the Bible as a member of the Godhead, worthy of equal honor and active in all phases of God’s eternal plan. Who He is and what He does must be understood if we are to live lives pleasing to Him. It was the Holy Spirit Who founded the Church and Who now provides its ongoing vitality. This assembly of believers takes various organizational forms but its essential nature and purpose are clearly presented in the Bible. Contemporary views of the Holy Spirit and of the Church need to be liberated from the muddled thinking present in today’s Christian culture.
