In this insightful interview, hear Pastor Brian Brodersen talk with Ken Sutton, correct inaccurate statements and perspectives regarding the Calvary Chapel Movement by Pastor John MacArthur. In addition to clarifying Calvary Chapel’s true position on and practice of the gifts of the Spirit, the goal of this video is also to encourage all believers to seek a biblically informed experiential relationship with the Holy Spirit.
