Welcome to your Five-fold

Ephesians chapter 4 lists five unique gifts that are given by God in order to build His body, the called out ones, also described as 'ecclesia'. These are the ones that have been called out of darkness into the light; God's eternal purpose. The context of these gifts are the very being of God. He is their origin and they have an eternal purpose. Through the redeemed they are again restored to their God-given purpose.

You will find a range of statements that you need to evaluate. The intent is that they aid you in clarifying which of the gifts are potentially the strongest in your life. The five that are listed in Ephesians are: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd and Teacher.

As with all assessments of this kind it remains your responsibility to steward the information you receive. This may be helpful for your further growth and development, and for assisting you in going deeper in God's purpose for your life.
