The Holy Spirit and Conversion

Home > Pastor's Blog > The Holy Spirit and Conversion

On Wednesday Night, January 9th, we will revisit an earlier discussion from December concerning “The State of American Theology in 2018.” This survey was conducted by Ligonier Ministries (founded by Dr. R.C.Sproul) & Lifeway Research (SBC). During our discussion, question number 7 caused the most controversy; therefore, we have been asked to discuss this question further. The discussion heated up concerning the proper sequence of how God’s plan of salvation works. Do we have faith before we are “born again” or do we need to be “born again” before we have faith?

To prepare for our Wednesday Night discussion – please read John 3 and Ephesians 2 and then evaluate the following survey statement:

The Holy Spirit gives a spiritual new birth or new life before a person has faith in Jesus Christ.
