How It All Began

Laverne Smoot Ministries

The Foundation for Apostolic Living


We exist so that the ascension 5 fold gifts of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher given to the church by Jesus when He ascended to Heaven will be used to equip God’s people to do His work and build the church, the body of Christ. God is calling the gifts to align with Heaven and bring order to the church.


The Body of Christ will mature, reflect Christ, stand strong against the cunning tricks of the enemy and grow in love as each person does the work they were created to do. Then we will walk in the ways and teachings of Jesus becoming true disciples of Christ. As Christians abide in Christ and fulfill their proper function in the church, they grow closer to one another in love and unity.


To make sure the Body is taught the word from the Lord in truth and love. Then we will grow up following Christ’s example, who is the Head. From Him the whole body-the Church in all its various parts joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies causes the body to grow and mature building itself up in love. We will spread this word to all through classes, books, meetings, conferences, social media, and other virtual avenues. The church’s spiritual growth, then, comes from Christ through the believers' ministry to one another as they employ their spiritual gifts.
