Ephesians 4:4-8,11-16
4 There is one body, and one
Spirit, even as ye are called in one
hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, who is
above all, and through all, and in
you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given
grace according to the measure of the
gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he saith, When he
ascended up on high, he led captivity
captive, and gave gifts unto men.
11 And he gave some, apostles; and
some, prophets; and some, evangelists;
and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the
saints, for the work of the ministry,
for the edifying of the body of
13 Till we all come in the unity of
the faith, and of the knowledge of
the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of
the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more
children, tossed to and fro, and
carried about with every wind of
doctrine, by the sleight of men, and
cunning craftiness, whereby they lie
in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love,
may grow up into him in all things,
which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly
joined together and compacted by that
which every joint supplieth,
according to the effectual working in
the measure of every part, maketh
increase of the body unto the
edifying of itself in love.
