The Keys to Church Growth – Part II


In these verses (Eph 4:12-16), Paul gives the four key purposes of the gifts which Christ has imparted to the church.

We saw the first two purposes last week – they were given to:

1. Build Maturity (4:12)

2. Build Unity (4:13)


This week, we will study the final two purposes – they were given to:

3. Bring About Protection (4:14)

4. Bring About Growth (4:15-16)


“Today’s church cannot remain faithful if it tolerates false teachers and leaves their teaching uncorrected and unconfronted” – Albert Mohler

"Spiritual growth depends on two things: first a willingness to live according to the Word of God; second, a willingness to take whatever consequences emerge as a result." - Sinclair B. Ferguson
