How did the church in Corinth receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit?


How did the Corinthian church receive the Holy Spirit in a miraculous way? Was it by the laying on hands by the apostles or what? Or does the Bible not say?


The church in Corinth was started by the Apostle Paul (Acts 18). He initially taught there for 18 months (Acts 18:11) and returned several times. As an apostle, Paul had the ability to pass on the gifts of the Holy Spirit (II Timothy 1:6). Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that Paul passed on the gifts to members of the church at Corinth while he was there.


Thank you, sir.
