This is a summary of an 11 week sermon series that describes our values and our strategy to connect people to living out those values.
We will unpack the differences between the spiritual gifts and the manifestation of the Spirit, and recall the importance of unity in a church with diverse gifts. We will specifically deal with the manifestation of the spirits wisdom and knowledge in a believers life as we do ministry and serve Christ.
We are going to look at the spiritual gift of giving as well as the doctrines of giving. We have discovered that many in our church have never heard about the doctrines of giving and have been surprised as they learned about what the Word says. Since there is not much to be said about the gift of giving, we are going to use this as an opportunity to deal with giving in the body of christ in general as well.

Bible Text: Luke 4:42-44, Matthew 24:14, Mark 1:35 | Preacher: Pastor CJ Counts | Series: What We Are All About | As we grow more mature in our relationship with Christ, our heart will long for the things God’s heart longs for more and more. The more God lives in us, the less attracted we become to the things that do not attract God, and the more passionate we become about the things that God is passionate about.
