How Can I Help?

Believers Church 

4 Biblical Reasons to Serve in the Ministries of the Church

1.    Serving models the life of Jesus. –In Mark 10:45, we read that Jesus came not to be served but to serve and to give His life as ransom. We discover true greatness when we serve because we are becoming like Christ when we serve others.

 

2.    Serving is the natural response to the gospel. In Romans 12:1-2, Paul urges the Christians to present their bodies as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God. The basis for this appeal is the magnificent mercies of God. The depth of the gospel message propels us into a life of all out service to Him. When we rightly understand what we’ve been saved from, we’ll desire to give our lives to Him in service, not to earn His favor or to repay Him but as a natural, loving response to what HE’s already accomplished for us.

 

 

3.    Serving utilizes the spiritual gifts God has given us. In 1 Peter 4:10-11, we learn that each of us has been given a spiritual gift that is to be used to serve others. Each of us is on a mission with God to build up the body of Christ so that all become mature in Christ. As we use our gifts in the ministries of the church, not only are we helping others grow spiritually but we also are growing into maturity.

 

4.    Serving combats our natural self-centeredness. In Philippians2;3-4, we learn that we are to look not only to our own interests but also to the interest of others, as a way of imitating what Christ has done for us. We are all naturally self-centered but serving in the church is a grace by which we combat those sinful tendencies and consider others more important than ourselves.

 

FIRST SERVE

Can you imagine having to sign a six-month to one year lease on a new car just so you could drive it to see if you like it?  Wouldn’t it be better to just take it for a 45-minute test drive first?

Even most cell phone companies offer you 2 –4 weeks to try your phone out before you are stuck with it for 2 years!

Often times, you don’t volunteer to help in a ministry because you don’t know if you would really like it or not,  Right?  You don’t want to commit a year or more to something that you don’t like.

 At Believers, we offer you First Serve: short-term serving opportunities offered at a variety of times and tapping into a wide range of skills and areas of interest.

Take a ministry on a “test drive”.  Come check it out and see if you like it.  No strings attached.

Serve in one of our ministries for 30 days or 4 meeting periods to see if it’s your “fit”.  Every ministry has a different rotation schedule; therefore, a scheduled serving time can be worked out with the ministry leader.
