Founding Documents (Part 4 of 4)

By May 10, 2010 No Comments

A Discourse on the Holy Spirit was written by Walter Scott in 1831. He is considered to be one of the “big four” founding fathers of the American Restoration Movement, along with Stone, Campbell and Campbell. The theology on the Holy Spirit that is held by most in our family of churches was shaped in large measure by this document. Interestingly, it references Acts 2:38, which is considered the “go to” passage of scripture on conversion within the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ to this day.
