If you aren’t sure what your spiritual gifts are, I wouldn’t worry about it. If you give yourself to other believers in the church, you will inevitably be using your gifts.

Steve sees five characteristics at the heart of the “movement” of the Southern Baptist Convention that keep it healthy. I agree with his assessment of the SBC and the significance of these beliefs:

  1. The authority of Scripture
  2. The primary missionary task
  3. The independence of the local church
  4. The priesthood of every believer
  5. Descendants that can’t be counted
