Ephesians 2:8-10; 4:7-8, 11-14

If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, you have been given spiritual gift(s) by the Holy Spirit. Your “job” then is to discover and develop your gift(s) for maximum impact in God’s mission. Some people don’t believe they have a place of ministry in God’s Kingdom, but every Christ-follower has been gifted by the Holy Spirit with spiritual gifts for the purpose of building up the body of Christ, the church. Jesus gave specific gifts, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher to equip Christ-followers for ministry, to build up the church and mature the church. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? Are you equipping yourself to grow in your understanding and application of your gifts for the work of ministry and strengthening of the body of Christ? Today we will introduce the equipping gifts and explore how you can equip yourself for ministry in God’s kingdom.


Current Series



E-transfer does not refer to a financial transaction.  Rather, the "E" refers to the energy received from the person of the Holy Spirit to carry on the ministry of Jesus.   As we examine stories of the early church from the Book of Acts (six weeks), we will consider God's vision for Willingdon in the 21st century.  Following this overview, we will study what God has to say to us about spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12-14). Spiritual gifts are the way God has chosen to empower us, so that we might live out the vision he has called us to.  The purpose of the series is for God inspire and empower all his people at Willingdon to participate in his mission to Metro Vancouver, Canada and the world.
