and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3
Our Ministries. How, What, and Why
God has blessed us with an abundant life. The goodness he brings into our lives we believe is to be shared with the world. Often in our life before we come to know and love Jesus, we are caught in a lifestyle of sin. We, in our sinful nature get caught in worldly ways and it is only by the power of His spirit we are set free from the bondage of Sin. The Bible tells us that those who overcome are truly blessed. Part of that blessing is having the power, insight and wisdom to help others out of similar situations.
The Apostle Paul writes to the church in Ephesus concerning the purpose of the gifts Jesus gave men for the building up of The Church
Ephesians 4: 11,12
11And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.
12His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church),
Other blessings God brings into our lives can equip us to expand His Kingdom Ministries . Our ministries are inspired and empowered by the work of The Holy Spirit.
