Spiritual Gifts

All Christians have been given at least one spiritual gift by the Holy Spirit. Many Christians have several spiritual gifts, with typically one dominant gift; this group of gifts is called a gift cluster. The purpose of spiritual gifts is to unify Christians in their faith, build each other up, and to produce growth within the church, both numerical and spiritual. Spiritual gifts are to be used out of love for God and for others, and in service for God and to others.
