Q: When you emphasize the spiritual gift of evangelism aren't you neglecting the other gifts which are just as valid and important? A: This is a great and important question. I know many people who have asked this question. It is good to be able to address it for mutual edification. Hopefully we can bring clarity to spiritual gifts and the purpose of the body. Before diving in, it is important to state that we agree whole-heartedly and without qualification that every spiritual gift which is given by the Lord is valid and important. There is very little agreement in the professing Church as to what, exactly , the gifts of the Spirit are. Debate swirls around which gifts are still around today. This is not territory that we would like to explore in this particular question. However, whatever gifts the Spirit gives to His followers today are all valid and important. This is the major point of agreement. The Apostle Paul makes this point clear enough in 1 Corinthians 12:14-26
