I Corinthians 12

Today we take a turning point in our sermon series. Over the next number of weeks, we will be looking at the spiritual gifts that God gives to the church. A spiritual gift is a special attribute or special skill given by the Holy Spirit to every member of the Body of Christ that is used to build up the Body of Christ and to carry on the mission Jesus has entrusted to us. There are all sorts of spiritual gifts listed in Scripture. We will get into many of the specific gifts in the coming weeks, but this week we will take a broader view and talk about how all the gifts are meant to function in the church.


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.
