Welcome to The Tab Family
Pastor Dwain & Pam Kitchens
Most of my ministry, I served as a Senior Pastor in Southern Baptist churches. I graduated from Southwest Baptist College, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Mid-American Baptist Theological Seminary and thought I had my theology neatly wrapped in a nice little system. But, in March 2000 I experienced the fresh wind of the Holy Spirit that dramatically transformed my life. I received what many refer to as the baptism “in” the Holy Spirit. The experience was so profound that it caused me to reevaluate my theological position on the Holy Spirit. I now feel I have a proper balance between the Word and the Spirit. I am not sure who made the following statement, but this is where I have theologically landed: “If you have the Word but not the Spirit you will dry up. If you have the Spirit but not The Word you will blow up! If you have The Spirit AND The Word you will grow up.”
