AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
God bestows upon all members of His church in every age
spiritual gifts which each member is to employ in loving ministry
for the common good of the church and of humanity. Given by the
agency of the Holy Spirit, who apportions to each member as He
wills, the gifts provide all abilities and ministries needed by the
church to fulfill its divinely ordained functions. According to the
Scriptures, these gifts include such ministries as faith, healing,
prophecy, proclamation, teaching, administration, reconciliation,
compassion, and self-sacrificing service and charity for the help
and encouragement of people. Some members are called of God
and endowed by the Spirit for functions recognized by the church
in pastoral, evangelistic, apostolic, and teaching ministries
particularly needed to equip the members for service, to build up
the church to spiritual maturity, and to foster unity of the faith and
knowledge of God. When members employ these spiritual gifts as
faithful stewards of God's varied grace, the church is protected
from the destructive influence of false doctrine, grows with a
growth that is from God, and is built up in faith and love.
