Phil MI was impressed
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
I grew up going to a traditional church. My experience of God consisted of attendance, ceremony and a vague hope.
I heard the full gospel from a guy at work. Six months later my life was unravelling badly. When I went to a Revival meeting, I was impressed that the people had real peace, joy, and purpose in their lives. I was challenged by the scriptures which directed me towards baptism and receiving the Holy Spirit. I had nothing to lose so I got baptised.
A few weeks later I received the Holy Spirit and spoke in an unknown tongue. This born-again experience was a powerful thing and immediately I had an inner strength and peace which I had lacked.
Since then I've experienced God's goodness and love in every aspect of my life. I've seen miracles of healing and many answers to prayer. I now have a hope based on my experience of the true God of the Bible.
