About The Five Fold Ministry
What if you could know your God-given calling and gifting? What if you could have answers to questions such as; How does God want to use me? How do I serve God? How to I participate with God in building his church? How do I contribute to building up of people for God?
All of these questions are answered when you discover your God-given gifting and calling. What if you could know what that is? Well, we have built a tool to help you do exactly that. Its called the Five Fold Ministry Test.
We believe the answer to how we are to minister with God is found in the biblical example Paul instructs for believers.
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-16 (NASB)
