The Bible is clear that God provides the church with special gifts to operate with power and be effective. To deny or ignore these gifts is a fatal mistake. To misuse them is a grievous error.
Bible believing churches and Christians must understand this important teaching. While we emphasize so many topics over and over again, we often skim over this one. Few Bible believing authors and pastors deal with it other than a cursory mention in passing. Indeed, Paul wrote,
1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
Gifts of the Spirit is a one of a kind book that surveys the eighteen New Testament Gifts giving examples, uses, tendencies, and warnings for each. This is a “must” read.
