Pneumatology and the Church


The purpose of this study is to expand the boundaries of our knowledge by exploring some relevant facts related to church's position on the Holy Spirit. Before making the lesson plan, we have obtained copies of the statement of doctrine/beliefs and the mission statement for church, and also conducted interview with the pastor/minister for clear focus and understanding about the church's belief on the work of the Holy Spirit. In the next section, the author will present a lesson plan that will present a lesson plan that could be presented to a group in the church. This teaching plan would clearly explain the church's position on the Holy Spirit. It would also present evidence of the Holy Spirit's work in the church and ways the Spirit should be involved in the life of the church.

Pneumatological views in the Pentateuch, therefore, evolved from the concept of the Spirit as an objective instrument of divine will (Welker, 2006).

The theme of the relationship between Jesus and the Holy Spirit is really important from the Trinitarian view, and from the Christological point of view of theological anthropology. From the Trinitarian view, the issue is important because the personality of the Holy Spirit is manifested particularly in his relationship with Jesus.
