God’s Plan for Church Growth

Text: Ephesians 4:7-16
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: May 15, 2016

In this sermon we will see what the Lord teaches us through the Apostle Paul about how the church grows.  Our growth is founded upon the gospel which should produce humility, love and patience.  The ascended Christ has given gifts to His church, including leaders who equip the saints to do the work of ministry so that the body is built up (grows) as every member does his/her part.

Please read Ephesians 4:1-16 in preparation for listening to this sermon.
