In every congregation, ministry work is essential. It is by our Lord’s own example that we are encouraged to remember that we are called to serve. Serving through ministry helps give perspective, direction, foundation, and focus to congregants of Christ’s church. As servants of Christ, we are commanded to serve, and through His church, we offer our services (ministries) to others as a demonstration of our love, loyalty, and liberty to Christ and His Church.
Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13
