Lecture Description

The Ephesian church is an incredible example in the New Testament which provides timeless principles on empowering the church in the 21st century. Drawing from the teachings of Jesus and the Apostle Paul, the New Testament church is empowered through the proclamation of the Gospel, strategic prayer, reliance on the Holy Spirit and unity among the believers. By recognizing and equipping each member's unique calling and gifts, churches can become centers of spiritual vitality transforming their communities.
