“Building His Church by Equipping the Saints”
“Building His church by equipping the Saints”
"Building His Church…"
Jesus is the Head - Christ the Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20)
We join the Body - Foundation of the Apostles & Prophets (Ephesians 2:20)
Together, we are like living stones - A Holy Priesthood ( 1 Peter 2:5)
"...by Equipping the Saints."
We use our God giftings to prepare God’s people for works of service
so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith,
knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure
of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
All believers are to be servants just as Jesus taught us.
All Christians are to be ministers to each other
and to a world in need.
Christians are a part of a royal priesthood.
All believers are called to be in ministry.
The pastor is just one of many ministers in this body.
