Additional Resources on Every Member Ministry

An Overview:
At Lakewood Bible Chapel, we believe in Every Member Ministry.  
The New Testament uses many metaphors to illustrate God's relationship to His people; one being the church as a body, with the Lord Jesus Christ operating as the head. Just as the physical body is under submission to and guided by the head, so the church is in submission to and guided by Christ.
 
Each member of Christ's body has been given at least one gift for the building up of the body for the glory of the head, and therefore, each member of the body is a minister in the church.
 
At Lakewood Bible Chapel, we have a number of ways to get involved and participate in the body which can not only help identify your particular gifting, but also allow us to better equip you to utilize that gifting for the edification and encouragement of the other members.

Romans 12:4-5
