Pastor's response...

ANSWER: "The ministry of the saints is WITHIN the body of Christ and OUTSIDE to the world. It is the effective use of the grace given to every beleiver to serve the body with and to draw those outside to Christ. The five folds Ministry is to prepare the saints to adequately fulfil the work by building them in the doctrine of the kingdom and equipping them with spiritual insight and impartation to do effective and abiding inreach and outreach in summary the believer has the following ministry to fulfil 1. Ministry to God; the saints minister to God in genuine and true spirit led worship, also in prayers to him to advocate his will on earth and judicious use of their bodies, time and resources for his purposes 1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 2.Ministry to the body of Christ, to serve her (our fellow saints) with grace to hold the body together and serve her need for edification, this is what each christian is anointed to do by christ for the nourishment, growth and wellbeing of the body Romans 12:3-8 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness. 3.Ministry to the world, we owe them to shine our lights of good works in Christ jesus and then to present them jesus Christ our king, we do this on all the spheres of influence and culture that we are represented in Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
