Biblical View of Ministry

To summarize Ephesians 4:11,12 Paul says that God gifts the church with pastors so that they will equip the church to do the work of the ministry.

Therefore the pastor’s primary job is to “equip” the members.

Charles Brock in his book Indigenous Church Planting says that when this happens the following will be true about church members:

When sharing their faith, they are not seen as paid salesmen; they are known as satisfied customers.

When the church functions this way a church is functioning the Bible way.  In this way members and pastors are doing their God-given job and the world is being impacted.
