Training and Equipping the Body of Christ

August 8, 2021 Speaker: Will Barkley Series: Ephesians

Passage: Ephesians 4:11–4:16

SMALL GROUP DISCUSSION

- What is theology? What is Christian doctrine? For followers of Christ, what is the source of our theology and doctrine?

- Read Ephesians 4:11-16. These verses mention apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherda and teachers, but does that mean those are the only ones who need to be concerned with theology and doctrine? In what ways do theology and doctrine impact your life? Where do we see theology in practice?

- Why is spiritual maturity important? (hint: Ephesians 4:14) In your own life, how have you grown in faith and your understanding of God's Word over the time you've given your life to Christ? What do you think made this happen?

- Why is an individual's spiritual maturity important to the church? (hint: Ephesians 4:16) What are some ways you can contribute to the church working properly and being built up in love?
