Wide Awake Missions believes in the active work of the Holy Spirit and the dispersing of His gifts into the life of the believer.
Spiritual gifts are given by the Holy Spirit to Christ-followers to spread the Gospel and to fulfill the Great Commission. They are gifts, given to believers, for the sake of ministering to the body of Christ and evangelizing the lost in ways that are supernatural and otherwise impossible.
Paul tells the Corinthian church about the importance of spiritual gifts and emphasizes the fact that they are intended to build up other believers. Spiritual gifts were a part of the New Testament church. On the day of Pentecost, the apostles speak in tongues. Later on in Acts, we see them performing healings and miracles.
We see Jesus using spiritual gifts as part of His earthly ministry. He performed miracles and healings, and He prophesied. He performed these deeds in His humanity by the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:38) and asked His followers to do the things He had been doing (Luke 9:1).
There are four main lists of spiritual gifts: Romans 12:5, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, Ephesians 4:11-12, and 1 Corinthians 12:28. Paul encourages the Corinthian church to eagerly desire spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 14:1). Paul also encourages Timothy to "fan into flame” the gift God has given him (2 Timothy 1:6).
The fruit of the Holy Spirit, as described in Galatians 5:22–23, is the primary evidence of the Spirit-filled life. These qualities are produced by the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. We evaluate the presence of the Spirit by the presence of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in a person’s life and ministry.
We believe it is essential for believers to discover and exercise their spiritual gifts. These supernatural gifts given by God to Christ-followers testify that He alone is the true and LIVING God. Our expectation is that God will empower each believer with certain gifts for the sake of fulfilling the command to go and make disciples of all nations.
In all things, our sole focus is Jesus, not a particular gift, and our desire is to bring glory to God in all we do.
