Developing our God-given gifts and ministries
God has given each of us gifts, abilities and skills. Our sense of purpose in God's world is enhanced as we learn to develop these gifts and use them in the service of others. The Manual of the United Reformed Church says:
The Lord Jesus Christ continues his ministry in and through the Church, the whole people of God called and committed to his service and equipped by him for it. This service is given by worship, prayer, proclamation of the Gospel, and Christian witness; by mutual and outgoing care and responsibility; and by obedient discipleship in the whole of daily life, according to the gifts and opportunities given to each one. The preparation and strengthening of its members for such ministry and discipleship shall always be a major concern of the United Reformed Church.
