In 1st Corinthians 12, the apostle Paul shares with a group of gathered Christians about the meaning, purpose, and structure of Spiritual Gifts. In summation he comes to the conclusion that many of us have God given talents such as wisdom, knowledge, prophecy, service, healing and even the gift of tongues. However, before he gets in to any of that, he makes it very clear that Spiritual Gifts are about serving God. They are about bringing God glory and establishing his kingdom on earth. Here at First we believe that everyone has special gifts, talents, passions, and training. We also believe that these gifts are from God and that we are called to use them to glorify His name and serve others. Our goal is to empower everyone to do just that. Maybe you are well aware of your gifts and you are ready to jump in and serve or maybe you are new to this whole thing and not really sure what your gifts are or where to go from here. Below you will find two action steps. One is a short assessment that will help you identify areas that you may be gifted in and gives direction to ministries that may be a fit for you. The other action step will connect you to a form to fill out so that we can get you connected to the right ministry here at First. Whatever place you find yourself in, we hope to connect with you very soon!
