Eph4:11 he handed out gifts above a apostle, prophet, evangelist and pastor
, teacher to train christs followers in skilled servant work, working within christbody the church until we’re all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God’s Son, mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ. (MSG)
The fivefold ministry is still in operation in today’s church including the office of apostle. There are many people that would disagree that the office of apostle is still operation and that it ceased with the first set of apostles. But, if this is true then all of the offices should of ceased but they didn’t. So, I believe that the office is still in effect today but used a little a different way. I think that that the fivefold ministry is important because God has men skilled in these specific areas. I also believe that some people pick what verses to follow and not to follow.Besides Jesus said to obey all of the bible and I don’t think that we would not take it out of operation for today’s church. So, we need to get back to the basics and get back to his true word. The fivefold ministry is very important in today’s church because I believe that it shows that your church is healthy.
