Discipleship Foundations Series

Step 3: Salvation - English

God saved us to serve. To serve the purpose of God well, we need to be appropriately equipped. The way God equips His people is by giving them Gifts and Abilities, and we call these Spiritual Gifts. Knowing and Understanding Spiritual Gifts and how God uses these in and through our lives, empowers us to minister more effectively to the Building up of the Body of Christ

Step Three is about Developing our Gifts and Skills to fulfill the great purpose God has for our lives.

Through the five steps of the Discipleship Foundation Series, we are doing just that: We equip you to fulfill that purpose of God. During Step 3 we will complete 5 weekends encounters together. In each of these weekends we will learn and discover some of the gifts and skills God gave each one of us and then learn to develop and use these gifts and skills.
