More About Spiritual Gifts
The church needs you. Not because it needs people to fill positions, but because YOU are an important and integral part of the body of Christ. YOU have a significant contribution to make. YOU have a ministry in the church and a mission in the world.
Our spiritual gifts are given by design and make us unique. God has a plan for each of us & has given us gifts to enable us to carry out that plan.
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.” Romans 12:6
Once you learn about your spiritual gifts, you will serve more confidently and competently in those ministries where your gifts can be best utilized and the church as a whole will benefit. When members serve based on the spiritual gifts given them by the Holy Spirit, the church can better fulfill its great commission of making disciples for Jesus Christ.
