"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets,
the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,
to equip his people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge
of the Son of God and become mature,
attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."
