How are the gifts of the Spirit viewed?
We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit motivate, equip and empower the Church for the mission of the Body of Christ. The LAM rejoices in and affirms the expression of all of the gifts, while recognizing that extreme positions have resulted in divisiveness. Respect must be given to all the Spirit’s gifts as we carry out our mission to build the church. But great care must be exercised in not giving any gift a more important role than Scripture does.
