God gives them to us through the work of the Holy Spirit.
New Members Orientation Class 3: SERVE Spiritual Gifts 13
New Members Orientation Scripture References: The Apostle Paul addresses the presence of spiritual gifts in three main sections of scripture: Romans 12, I Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4. Peter also verifies their existence in I Peter 4:10. Through these sections of scripture, we learn that all Christians have been given at least one spiritual gift. The purpose of spiritual gifts is twofold: (1) to unify Christians in their faith and (2) to produce growth within the church, both numerical and spiritual. These gifts are to be used out of love for one another, and in service to one another.
New Members Orientation The Spiritual Gift Assessment: The Spiritual Gift Assessment is an exercise that assists you in the discovery of your God given Spiritual Gift. These are activated in areas of ministry where you will be most effective. The tool helps you open your gifts through scripture reference and the self-assessment inventory.
New Members Orientation May the special abilities God has given you be deployed in areas of ministry where they will be most effective for the good of the entire church body. These gifts should also be affirmed by the body and utilized by the one who is gifted. Amen
