Today, we start a brand new sermon series called Equipping: The Work of Ministry. In this series, we are studying how the church should function as the body of Christ. All believers have been given spiritual gifts which exist so that we can build up the body of Christ and be a blessing to others. Today, we look at a key passage in Ephesians 4 that describes how leaders and God’s people work together in unity for the Kingdom.
Spiritual Gifts are special abilities given by the Holy Spirit and distributed to every believer according to God’s design and grace for the common good of the body of Christ.
Our Unity is Based on How We Work Together for the Kingdom
The church functions best when the leaders are equipping the people to use their gifts
Our Goal is Christlikeness
You Have a Role in the Body of Christ that is Needed
