Empowered to Serve

We are protectors of people! The hero is a servant of the people, putting their own life at risk to save the ordinary citizen. At the most basic, we are called to care when no one else will.

Empowered to Deliver

Here we come to save the day! The hero’s life is about rescuing people from bad situations. We have been called to do the same. The people around us are in peril whether they know it or not and we are called to set them free.

The Gift and Gifts of the Spirit

When we give each other gifts it is usually to express love to another person. That is certainly an element of receiving gifts from the Spirit, but these gifts are not aimed at the individual. Instead, the intent of giving gifts to each individual of the church is to use those gifts to build each other up.

What Just Happened?

On the day of Pentecost there was a lot of noise and it was clear that something was going on, but no one knew exactly what it was. Some thought it was important and some thought it was a joke. What it was, was God fulfilling his promise to empower his church for mission — exactly what we need today!
