When the Bible talks about "ministry," what is it talking about? When it says that christians are to be involved in "works of ministry," what does it mean? Everyone in the church should serve. Memebers are encouraged to become actively involved within the church body. We ALL can serve in various places of ministry. It should be done for GOD to get the glory and praise. As christians in our church we serve and minister as a community within the framework of a body of believers.
