Home Church Video: The Spiritual Gift of Faith

Have you ever wondered why there is a spiritual gift of faith when all believers are saved by grace through faith?[1] The latter speaks of the faith that is given to all believers without exception, while the spiritual gift of faith speaks of something distributed by the Spirit to only some members of the body of Christ.[2]

In this video, our home church explores how the life of faith in Jesus Christ includes some within the church also receiving the spiritual gift of faith. We not only consider the distinctiveness of the spiritual gift of faith, but also how it builds up the body of Christ in the use of all the other spiritual gifts.

[1] I Corinthians 12:9; Ephesians 2:8-9
[2] This is true of all the spiritual gifts, that they are distributed by the Spirit throughout the body of Christ, with every believer having some gift to contribute, and no one believer having all the gifts. See I Corinthians 12:1-11, and Romans 12:3-8 for this partnership between the Spirit giving some gift to every believer, and no gift being given to every believer (requiring us to work together, of course).
