The Life-Development Church

The Ephesians 4 Model

The Life-Development Church Model is built on Ephesians 4: 11-16

"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love."

He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of waters that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. ---Psalm 1:3
