What's with the name?
The phrase "Spirit and Truth" comes directly from a quote from Jesus himself in John 4. While speaking to the woman at the well Jesus talks about the kind of worshippers that his Father seeks, ones that worship "in Spirit and in truth." Historically, one of the things that made the Wesleyan renewal movement so powerful was John Wesley's emphasis on the combination of both heart and head. Wesley had a conviction that the Christian life was to include both the truth of God's word and the experiential power of his Spirit. This ministry seeks to bring a renewed focus to this kind of wholistic approach to Christianity. We don't want to chase after only experience, but we we also don't want a bunch of knowledge that doesn't lead to changed living. The full life that Jesus offers is a life lived in the power of the Holy Spirit, who guides us into all truth.
