Key Quotes From William Wilson

“Spirit-empowered Christianity is really focused on relationship with Jesus that is a dynamic relationship through the immediate presence of the Holy Spirit. Pentecostals, Charismatics believe that God still does today what we read about Him doing in the Book of Acts and that we can see those same things happen in today’s ministry and in our lives, and that we have God’s immediate presence in our life through the fullness of the Holy Spirit every day.”

“Spirit-empowered Christians would believe in a subsequent baptism of the Holy Spirit after conversion.”

“Almost all Pentecostals and Charismatics believe in personal tongues, speaking in tongues, prayer, language, devotional tongues, however they put it. We believe that an individual can communicate with God through the presence of the Holy Spirit in an unknown language.”

“The National Association of Evangelicals, I think, was actually started by a Pentecostal group. And there was a real desire in early Pentecostalism to be accepted by the evangelical community.”
