THE MANIFESTATION GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

This Sunday we will be looking at 1 Corinthians 12 and the role of the manifestation gifts in the ministry of the church. Although chapter 12 will be the focus, 1 Corinthians 12 through 14 gives us a holistic perspective on these gifts. So, what is the source of these gifts, purpose of these gifts, the context for these gifts and the outcome of using these gifts?
