Survival Guide to a Spirit Filled Service

If you are not familiar with a Spirit filled service then this guide may help you!

Most of us, the first time we came to a Spirit filled service didn’t understand everything. Rest assured, everything we do has its foundation in the Word of God (the Bible).

Where’s the bulletin?
We don’t use one as we allow the Holy Spirit to direct the service and we don’t lock Him out by our plan. There is a general order but this can vary based on the leading of the Holy Spirit.

How do I know what to do?
Just follow those around you but there’s no pressure to do anything uncomfortable.

If you see or hear something unfamiliar don’t be concerned. (Often people are apprehensive of new things especially spiritual things.)
