House of Judah Theology
We must get to know Him before we can love Him, and we must love Him before we can desire to obey Him.
We at House of Judah believe in the purpose and function of the five-fold ministry(Ephesians 4:11) , "to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
We believe each and every believer has been given by the indwelling of the Spirit of God, gifts of the Spirit (Acts 2:38) Paul tells us that “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them”. No two gifts are the same and generally no two believers have exactly the same gifts but always these gifts are given for the common good of the church. These gifts of the Spirit are given not for the believer but for the Body of Christ. It is to make the Body complete. These gifts are intended for the church to edify it, to strengthen it, to feed it, to exhort it, to encourage it and to have the Body of Christ empowered to do the work of Christ. These gifts are always to exalt Christ, to witness of God’s power, to build up the Body, and to work to enlarge the Body of Christ by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost.
We at House of Judah believe, as members of the body of Christ, we must be serving together in order for the body to be fully-functional. That is why a church needs pastors, teachers, helpers, servants, administrators, those with great faith, etc. All of the gifts of the Holy Spirit working together are needed to produce the full potential of the church. Since the gifts of the Spirit are gifts of grace, there use must be controlled by the love of the cross - the greatest of all the gifts of the Spirit .
