Each of these persons, programs, and organizations fulfills a unique ministry within the Church. It is very important to realize that these church ministry programs are made up of committed people - "the committed people of God" - who are current members of the church body.
The Christian should minister by meeting people's needs with love and humility, on Christ's behalf. (See Matthew 20:26; Mark 10:43; John 2:5,9; Acts 6:3; Romans 1:1; Galatians 1:10; Colossians 4:12) Christians are to minister to others out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others, whether the other people are believers or unbelievers. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional, always seeking to help others as Jesus would.
Ministry should certainly place emphasis on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others so they can come to know Him and receive Him as personal Savior, go on to experience Him as Lord of their life, and go even further to know Christ as the essence of their Life. (See John 1:12; Colossians 2:6-7; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 3:8-10) Ministry can, and should, include ministering to the physical, emotional, mental, vocational, and financial needs of others. Jesus did, and so should we!
