Power For Life
Why Every Believer Needs to Be Baptized in the Holy Spirit
Jeff Leake George O. Wood
General Council of The Assemblies of God
"The baptism in the Holy Spirit is truly the gateway to living a supernatural life." Jeff Leake
Many people are curious and yet confused about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. It often launches a discussion about "speaking in tongues" and raises all sorts of questions:
- What is the baptism in the Holy Spirit?
- Is it necessary?
- Is it available for every believer?
- Is it still relevant?
Based on a solid biblical foundation and written in an easily accessible style, Power for Life answers those questions and many more. Jeff Leake helps every believer understand who they are in Christ and who the Holy Spirit is within their lives. Don't just read this book to resolve a controversy or solve some sense of awkward confusion. Read this book to come to grips with the supernatural potential of the Holy Spirit in your life. Read it with a hunger to see God do all He is able to do through you.
For the past twenty-four years, Jeff Leake has served as the lead pastor of Allison Park Church, a multi-campus church in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is the founder of The Network of Hope and The Northeast Ministry School. He holds an MA in missiology from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary and is the author of God in Motion, The Question That Changed My Life, Praying with Confidence, and Learning to Follow Jesus.
