In keeping with his particular works, the Holy Spirit endows the church with gifts.
The main purpose of spiritual gifts is to nurture the maturity and mission of the church by equipping each and every member to engage in ministry.
Other purposes are the confirmation of the gospel message and its messengers; provision of a foretaste of the fuller, future work of the Spirit; and the manifestation of Christ’s victory over his enemies.
It is important that believers identify their gift(s), learn how to use their gift(s), and serve in ministries in accordance with their gift(s).
Disagreement exists between cessationism, which believes that some spiritual gifts have ceased, and continuationism, which maintains that all the gifts continue today.
Spiritual gifts allow us (empowers us) to do what God is calling us to do.
