"In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, 'You have faith; I have deeds.' Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do." James 2:17-18
Ministry is not an activity reserved for "professionals." The Bible teaches that every believer has a role to serve within the body of Christ (cf. 1 Corinthians 12). Ministry to one another (within the church) serves as a testimony and even lays the foundation for our mission in reaching others (as you will see in CLASS 104). Listed below are some of the ministry opportunities within our church.
