Romans 8:9 says that anyone who does not have the Spirit does not belong to Christ. So, according to biblical definitions, to ask if a church has the Holy Spirit is to ask whether or not they’re Christian. Now, I know that people who ask this aren’t necessarily bringing into question the salvation of the congregants within any given church. But, what they are doing is hijacking Biblical language to suit their traditions.
According to the words of God, if someone does not have the Spirit, they are not Christian.
To walk in the Holy Spirit has nothing to do with how ecstatic a church service is. It simply means that we have been set free from our slavery to sin and death. That we no longer focus on our carnal desires, but desire to live a life that pleases God.
Yours in Christ,
