When someone talks about ministry in a church, this is when a person (or persons) becomes a minister of the gospel, an office of service when that person is called to by God. To "minister" means to serve, by rendering help to others, and preaching about the Bible and the gospel.
There are five key areas where our church helps others:
- Spiritual – where we help peoples hearts;
- Mental - where we care for the mind of a person;
- Soulish - the persons soul;
- Physical - their body;
- Social - neighbour
The anointing of Holy Spirit
Pastor Edmond Fowowe speaks about his calling to want to help others. He explains his calling to God.
For Christ's Sake Ministries was given to me in the year 1991. I was a member of a church in South London. I used to write a monthly bulletin for the men's fellowship – It was birthed through my hunger and thirst for God's will to be done in His childrens lives and that we believers will do whatever we do for each other and for God's mission for the sake of what Christ did for us on the Cross at Calvary.
Living for the sake of Christ
What grieved by heart was believers doing things (services) for themselves and not for the love of God and for His mission on earth. Through prayers, Bible studies, fasting and conviction by the Holy Spirit I began to change my lifestyle and start living for the sake of Christ with the genuine love and reverence of God in my heart. Through many years of service in God's mission I was given the other ministries for various ministration of rendering help to the sick.
