The New Testament is replete with references to the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost), for example, 1 Thessalonians 4:8 : "He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit."

To disbelieve in the Holy Spirit would therefore mean seeing the New Testament as theologically unreliable, which is a difficult position for a Christian to take. On the other hand, belief in the Holy Trinity is somewhat less fundamental to Christian faith.

It is in the bible. specifically in acts.

Jews and a minority of Christians believe that the Holy Spirit Is God's Power, while a majority of Christians believe that the Holy Spirit IS God (Third Person Of the Trinity).

In the gospels we read that when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan river by John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove. So Christians have used the dove to depict the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and therefore He is very important.

Pentecost is very important in that on the Day of Pentecost the disciples of Jesus Christ were given the Holy Spirit to dwell in them permanently.

The Holy Spirit has been around from ever, but not until the Christian period began did the Holy Spirit indwell persons (Christians) like He does today. I Corinthians 2:14, " But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." The natural man will never know the things of God or what the Bible truly says because they do not have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them.
