Serve

At the heart of First Baptist Montgomery, you will find a burning desire for each member to be involved in ministry. 1 Peter 4:10 states:
 
"each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve
others faithfully, administering God's grace in various forms."

 
The example of Jesus himself was to serve...not to be served. As a result of these truths, we should be motivated to uniquely use what has been uniquely given. All believers possess special gifts and are scripturally mandated to use those gifts. Finding a place to use your gift will unleash unmeasurable joy and service in and through your life. This is a tool to help you discover and use your God granted gifts. Once the spiritual gift survey is completed, you will be able to find opportunities for ministry that match your gifts. You can indicate your desire to serve by completing the response form.
