What does the Bible say about serving?
Through serving we glorify God, build up the church body and reach out to others. Here at TGNYC we believe that service is absolutely necessary – the church body needs everybody’s help! As Christians, we are directed to serve (I Pt. 4:10) and this is one of the ways we worship God (I Pt. 4:11, Rom 12:1).
When each of us does our part and uses our God-given gifts, we help to build up the local church and the larger Christian community (Eph. 4:12, Eph. 4:16). We want to help you to be fruitful and fulfilled in a meaningful place of service. Our desire is that every Christian at TGNYC engage in the work of Christ according to the gifts and passions given them by the Holy Spirit.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” – I Peter 4:10
“…to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…” – Ephesians 4:12
