The Five Fold Ministry

For the month of October, we have been focusing on the Five Fold Ministry.

The Five Fold Ministries are like the five fingers on your hand. When working together they form a fist and punch a hole of light in the kingdom of darkness. When unified, they help to hold the body of Christ together and carry the kingdom of heaven from one place to the other.

In Ephesians 4:11-13 it says, “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

The Five Fold Ministries are vital for the building up of the body. They are key ministries to moving forward in the Kingdom of God. God gave these ministries to many individuals in His body to bring about balance and growth throughout. The more we recognize and understand them, the better we are able to facilitate unity and covenant relationship with each other and those around us.
