Each believer in Jesus Christ is given spiritually empowered capacities to build up and strengthen the Body of Christ. These capacities are called Spiritual Gifts. Each spiritual gift is actually an manifestation of the Holy Spirit of God through the believer to accomplish God’s purposes for the Church. The Apostle Paul writes, “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills” (1 Cor. 12:7-11).
