The fivefold must exist in a living church.

Ephesians 4:11-12 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.

The bible tells us that each gift helps the other to grow. (16) Each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. This means that the ministry is never complete with one gift.

Most gifts remains dormant because the church only accept the pastoral gift. There must be apostles and prophets who will correct the body of Christ as God speaks.
