Course Name: Spiritual Gifts – “Experiencing the Power from on High”  

 Course Description:  Paul told the Corinthian church that he did not want them to be ignorant about spiritual gifts.  Sadly, today, many in the body of Christ are not even aware of what these gifts are, much less how to experience and utilize them for their own benefit and the benefit of others.  The student will study all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit listed in I Corinthians 12 and will learn how God uses these gifts to empower His church.  You will also learn the purpose and the function of all nine gifts and how to exercise them.
