Church members must be empowered for ministry. The scriptures state plainly that each member of the body of Christ has been given a special gift for ministry which, when utilized properly, builds up the church.
Every Believer lays the foundation to begin guiding members into understanding the New Testament principle of the priesthood of all believers. It provides a biblical framework to not only teach the importance of spiritual gifts in the body of Christ, but also the importance of using one’s gifts and not falling into the trap of consumer religion.
This leader’s guide includes all of the information you need to start and lead a small group through Every Believer:
If you are a member who has either not found a niche in which to be involved or you feel drained because you are in a place of ministry that doesn’t really match your gifts or you are one of the few faithful members carrying most of the responsibilities in your local church, then it is time to engage more people in an active relationship with Christ and encourage the involvement of every believer.
