five fold ministry

We believe in the total body ministry; that is the governmental ministries of the five fold offices as outlined in Ephesians 4:11, apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. To this end every believer in the body of Christ is given functional ministry, seen or unseen. We will commit to evangelize and build our local community with moral instructions, personal development & job readiness. We intend to establish a world outreach to take the gospel into the disenfranchised communities offering the same type of support we give to the local community. We will expand these areas of ministry by ongoing training programs so that we may equip and release, the field is ready for harvest!

The pastor is the prime caretaker of the Lord’s sheep. The Lord was very specific in his choice of titles here, using an image that was common in that day, and clearly portrayed the work of a spiritual pastor as being the same as a pastor of sheep. The pastor has three basic functions. They are:

Protect the sheep

Make sure the sheep are well fed

Lead the sheep where they need to go

The role of the teacher is to study and teach. Some teachers have an anointing to teach adults, others teens, and still others children. Some teachers have an anointing to only teach a certain subject, or area of subjects. It is important to seek out the particular anointing that a teacher has, and use him in that area. Trying to have a teacher that is anointed to teach adults about the Holy Spirit teach children doesn’t work. The teacher ends up talking over the children’s heads. Likewise, a teacher anointed to teach children doesn’t teach in a manner that will appeal to youth.
The apostolic ministry is actually the first one that our Lord, Jesus, established in the New Testament church.

And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles.

Lk 6:13

Why did Jesus establish the apostolic ministry first? Because it was to be the foundation of the church government in the New Testament, as the priesthood was the foundation of the ministry in the Old Testament. So, without apostles in the ministry, the ministry gifts are literally without the necessary foundation.

And (you) are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone.

Eph 2:20

The word apostle is a Greek word, and literally means, “one who is sent.” If I tell my son to take out the trash, he is an apostle to the trash. In the Christian context, that means that an apostle is one who is commissioned by the Lord, and sent to accomplish a specific purpose.

Although they are not called apostles (because that term being Greek, didn’t exist until the New Testament) we find apostles in the Old Testament as well. The greatest examples of these are Moses, and Nehemiah. In both of these cases, they were commissioned by God, and sent out, to accomplish a specific purpose for His kingdom.

The most common understanding of the apostolic ministry is that of pioneers, doing the missionary work 2 of planting churches in new areas of the world. This is based upon Paul’s ministry, as shown in the book of Acts. While this is part of the apostolic ministry, it is not all of it. This definition totally ignores the works of the other 12 apostles. Nor is it even all of what Paul did.


The work of the evangelist is twofold; evangelizing and motivating. Although everyone in the Body of Christ has a responsibility to help fulfill the great commission, the evangelist is called, equipped and anointed specifically in this area.
Throughout history, the prophet has always been God’s messenger, or mouthpiece. He has used them to communicate his warnings and plans; especially when His people weren’t otherwise listening to His voice. Most of these messages appeared negative to the average believer, and especially to the unbeliever.

However, the idea we have today of prophets is not the same. When we talk of prophets in the church, we think that the message and purpose of the prophet has changed to giving nice, sweet, uplifting words. God hasn’t changed, only our understanding has. This understanding has come from a misunderstanding of First Corinthians, chapter 14, verse 3:

But he that prophesies speaks unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

1 Cor 14:3

If we take a closer look at the definition of the three underlined words, we see that they are not nice, sweet, uplifting words, but in fact are strong words.

Edification (Strong’s number 3619) – the act of one who promotes another’s growth in Christian wisdom, piety, holiness, happiness 1

Exhortation (Strong’s number 3874) – a calling near, summons, imploration, supplication, entreaty; words of appeal, containing entreaties; admonition, encouragement; persuasive discourse, stirring address, instructive, admonitory, consolatory, powerful oratory discourse 1

Comfort (Strong’s number 3889) – any address, whether made for the purpose of persuading, or of arousing and stimulating, or of calming and consoling 1

Loving God. Loving People.
