The heart of ministry at Indian Trail Church resides in its members.
Scripture is clear that each member is an important part of the body that accomplishes the work of God by serving others in differing ways. Although there are seasons in which our entire focus needs to be on managing ourselves or our families, God’s Spirit prompts his children to do what they can to serve the church or others faithfully whenever they can.
Getting Involved in a Ministry
There are numerous ministries going on at Indian Trail Church—some are year-round, some are seasonal and some only last a few weeks or even days. But many of these ministries would rejoice in welcoming members who want to join them in service.

Speaking to us as believers in Christ, in 1 Corinthians 3:16 the Apostle Paul asks, “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells within you?” He answers his own question in 1 Corinthians 3:17, saying, “For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.” Along the same lines, in 1 Peter 2:9 the Apostle Peter tells us, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” These verses show us that as followers of Christ, God’s business is our business.
In Matthew 22:36, Jesus was asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?” Essentially, the lawyer was asking, what is God’s most important business that he wants us to be about? Jesus’s answer in Matthew 22:37-38 was clear: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” We follow this imperative both in our individual lives and when we gather as a church to worship our Lord.
But even though it may have seemed like the lawyer’s question was answered at that point, Jesus did not stop there. In Matthew 22:39-40, he went on to say, “And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” God’s most important business for us as his children also includes loving those around us. As we see from James 2:17, a life of true faith should be marked by ministry to others.
What Is Ministry?
So what does ministry to others look like? This is where God’s accomplishes his purposes in an amazing variety of ways and timings. Personal ministry could be many things. Our personalities, our God-given gifts, our experience, our spiritual maturity, our season in life—these all could lead us into loving service to our neighbors that looks very different from another member’s loving service. But one thing will be present in any Spirit-led ministry: the gospel of Christ will shine at its heart!
