I Corinthians 12:9-10

There is power in personal experience.  It is one thing to have the Grand Canyon described to you, but a completely different experience to walk up to the edge of the canyon and be awestruck by the enormity of it.  This comparison between the described and the experienced can be applied to the three spiritual gifts we will study today.  In a world where so many feel alone, vulnerable and even hopeless, these gifts serve as a tangible expression of God’s presence, compassion and power.  What are they?


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.
