Our main vision for the Workers’ Ministries platform is to properly define the topic of spiritual work and ministries in the Body of Christ and develop a new generation of workers.
The Workers’ Ministries main burden is to assure the following verses in Ephesians Chapter 4 is functioning properly in the Church.
Ephesians Chapter 4: 11-13
“11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”
Body of Christ: Life and Ministry
The Body of Christ combines all born-again Christians wherever they are. Our focus is to encourage the Lord’s people, especially the younger generation, by motivating, developing, and preparing them to serve God. The contents and the biblical teachings of this website will be in the area of spiritual work, service, and ministering.
The Body of Christ had two aspects; first is the life aspect, and second is the ministry aspect.
In regards to the life aspect, all God’s people possess the life of God by the Holy Spirit and must learn to express it in a natural way. As a member of the Body of Christ, each Christian must express the “life” of God in their local church, which the Lord has established in a city based upon the vicinity where an individual lives.
Perhaps one of the most important expressions of the life of God is for a member of a church to be able to love the other members of the Body of Christ. All of God’s people that possess the life of God must reach a point where they love their brothers and sisters in a practical manner. In fact, if a Christian fails on this aspect he has already failed in the aspect of spiritual service.
In 1st Corinthians chapter 13, Paul the apostle explains the meaning of this love in great detail. For instance, in verse 2 he states,
“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.”
Paul is emphasizing the importance of the aspect of love between members of a church and that without love, all services in a church are void of life.
Ministry Aspect (the main focus of our site)
While maintaining the importance of the function of love in the “life” aspect of the members of the Body of Christ, we should also pay close attention to the “ministry” aspect of the Body of Christ. These two aspects compliment one another and are both essential to a proper functioning church.
The main emphasis of our website is the ministry aspect, both in the Universal Church as well as the churches.
The Bible categorizes ministry into two parts. One is the ministry that relates to the Universal Church and the other that relates to the churches.
- The Universal Church includes all of those who belong to the Lord in the entire world, whereas the local churches include only the members of a particular local church. For instance, there can be Christian churches in Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, and Moscow, and all individuals within those churches are considered members of the Universal Church. The local churches however, are the individual churches in Los Angeles, Mexico City, etc.
Anyone who wants to serve God must be able to see the life aspect as well as the ministry aspect of the Body of Christ.
As far as the ministry aspect is concerned, a believer should be clear in regards to ministry as it relates to the Universal Church as well as the ministry within a local church where he or she is attending. There is a vast different between these two; however, all are directed towards one goal, which is to build the Body of Christ.
Our website will explain, through the writings of the Bible, what the true meaning of the Body of Christ is in both its universal and local aspects.
Unfortunately, the word “church” has lost its meaning from what God originally had in His mind. In fact, many biblical truths have lost their spiritual meaning. In order to recover the original meaning, we should go back to the scriptures and see the origin of that biblical truth. We cannot interpret the meaning of spiritual truths based upon our human assumptions, preferences, and out of convenience. Wherever that truth originates in the bible, we can discover God’s original will regarding that topic.
God Doesn’t Change
Always keep this principle in mind; God never changes His original will. It is foolish to think that God has changed His original mind because of the failure of the churches or because of our current condition.
This principle applies to the subject of the Universal Church and the physical churches. It also applies to matters such as the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how these gifts should be used in the churches. Furthermore, preaching and teaching also has an original meaning—the bible not only tells us what we should preach and teach, but it also writes how we should minister the word. In 1st Corinthians chapter 14, Paul goes as far as to explain how to conduct a church meeting as well as prayer meetings and what the true meaning of leadership and eldership in the Church and how they should oversee the affairs of the Church. It also discusses many other important issues that Christians should understand in order to serve God and His Church according to His mind.
We cannot take it upon ourselves to adjust and accommodate the ministries of the churches based upon current events, trends, and technologies. Technology, for instance, is an amazing tool that can be used to accompany a ministry; however, it should not replace the way in which the scriptures command our ministries to operate.
The Hope of Workers Ministries
Our main desire and earnest prayer is that we set aside our own opinions and assumptions and find out the truth. If a church fails to base its ministries on the proper Biblical principles, the churches will lack the flow of God’s life and power, even if that church emphasizes “love” and teaches many deep truths.
When the ministers and ministries of a church are grounded in Biblical truth, it is then that a Church as a whole, and its individual members, can be built up and grows. Our mission is to provide those truths to those dear brothers and the sisters that sincerely seek the truth of the Bible in many aspects of spiritual life in order to serve God properly.
