And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…
– The Apostle Paul, Ephesians 4:11-12 ESV
Equipping enables churches to send
One of the primary roles of those who lead a local Church is that of equipping the members of that local Church for the work of the ministry. There are many methodologies which can be employed in order to achieve this end of equipping. With that being said, while the methods we employ may occasionally change, the ideal of equipping will always remain central to who we are.
The regular gatherings of Calvary Chapel La Pine include corporate gatherings as well as smaller groups. Corporate gatherings consist of Christ-centered preaching, the observance of the Sacraments (Communion and Baptism), prayer, and the fellowship of believers. Small groups are more specifically designed to foster a greater relational connection among members within the context of discipleship. The Gospel is central to all of our gatherings and is central in our efforts of equipping our members for the work of the ministry.
