We teach that although gifts of the Holy Spirit are still given today, they are not given to authenticate a person’s message; nor are they given to communicate divine revelation that adds to or contradicts Scripture. Now that the New Testament is complete, Scripture alone is the only authority.
We teach that the only gifts in operation today are non-revelatory, ministering gifts, given to equip believers for edifying one another (Romans 12:6-8), and must be exercised within the Scriptural guidelines (1 Corinthians 14).
We teach that the Holy Spirit desires to draw attention to Christ, not to Himself (John 16:14). We as believers are to covet the best gifts, seeking to exercise them in His love that the whole Body of Christ might be edified (1 Corinthians 12:4-7).
We teach that Biblical love is more important than any spiritual gift, and without this love the exercise of spiritual gifts is worthless (1 Corinthians 12:31, 1 Corinthians 13:1-3).
