Spiritual Gifts

Already/Not Yet

Spiritual gifts can be a confusing, intimidating subject, but the basic truth is straightforward: if you are a follower of Jesus, then you have been given certain talents, passions and abilities that our Church needs to accomplish what God is calling us to. The Church needs you to be who God has created you to be. You're an indispensable part of what God is doing here in Beavercreek! And the best way to figure out your gifts is to jump in and serve.

From Series: "Already/Not Yet"

Jesus' resurrection wasn't the end of the story; it was the beginning of God's new creation. The Resurrection is God's first step toward reclaiming creation, and we get to be a part of it. By choosing to follow Jesus, we leave the old reality dominated by sin and death and step into God's kingdom, where we find life. This new life has already begun. And yet we're also still waiting, because God's kingdom has not yet come in full. How do we live in the tension between the Already and the Not Yet? This series explores who God calls the Church to be, and how the Holy Spirit enables us to join in God's mission in the space between the Resurrection and the Second Coming. We're not just waiting around for God to show up. God is already here and working, so we're joining in!
