Since FBCG is a house of worship, you will be asked a series of questions to not only assess your professional work experience but also your spiritual maturity. This may include determining your Spirit-Controlled Temperament. If you don’t know your temperament, which is a combination of inborn traits that subconsciously affect our behavior, “Spirit-Controlled Temperament” by Tim LaHaye is an excellent resource. There are also tests available online to help identify your temperament.
Secondly, do you know your gifts of the Holy Spirit? Everyone who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior receives spiritual gifts. The gifts are to be used to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, which is the body of Christ. Here are some scripture references: Eph. 4:11-12, Rom. 12:6-8, 1 Cor. 12:4-12 and Heb. 2:4. The Institutes offers a class on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, in addition to materials available in the FBCG Media Center.
Does your life reflect the Fruit of the Spirit? When the Holy Spirit controls our lives, He will produce the Fruit of the Spirit in us: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Read more about the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-26.
First Baptist Church of Glenarden uses a character-based performance evaluation model. Character is the real you! The Bible refers to it as “the hidden person of the heart” (1 Peter 3:4). Character combines your temperament, training, moral values, beliefs and habit patterns. It is sometimes referred to as “the soul” of a person, which is made up of the mind, emotions and will. View the full listing of character traits that FBCG staff embodies.
