Pastor Irene – The blueprint for Capital River of Life in my heart

Church is the Congress. Christians are the members of Congress.
1.Why do we need church?
A. Jesus’s salvation brings the hope.
B. Bringing Transformation to the country or community (Uganda; Hemet ,CA)
The most critical element in church is not building, program, but instead it is the people who are gathering, Ephesians 1:18-20 something everyone in church should understand “The great hope of His calling”” Showing the richness of God’s glorious inheritance”” How great is the might of His power”
2.Ephesians 4:7-12 The Glorious Church of God’s Plan
A. We’re living in a kingdom where we are taken care of
1.) Jesus has Capture us back (v8)
2.) Jesus gives everyone gifts (v8b)
3.) Jesus gave 5 great gifts of ministry in the church
3.The functions and goal of the fivefold ministries:
“In order to become sanctified, we need to do our part. Build the body of Christ, until we are all as one in truth”(Ephesians4:12)
To become whole, we need to be equipped
(1) Equipping is for the perfecting of the saints:
(2) The goal for equipping is to lead Christians to ministry
(3) The mission of equipping is to build up the body of Christ (that is the church)
Ephesians 4:1-3: ἀξίως Commensurate: worthy of: suitably, worthily, in a manner worthy of
