What Are Your Spiritual Gifts?

How to Determine Your Spiritual Gifts:

  1. Study the Scriptures on Spiritual Gifts
    • Ephesians 4:11; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10; 1 Corinthians 12:28-30; Romans 12:6-8; 1 Peter 4:11
  2. Pray and ask God what your spiritual gift(s) are
    • Matthew 7:7; James 1:5
  3. Take a Spiritual Gift Inventory or Assessment
  4. Ask other Christians for their opinion on your gifts
    • Proverbs 11:14; Proverbs 15:22

There are 2 Spiritual Gift assessment tests included in one document. One is based more on experience and one on interest. It is helpful to take them together to create a composite perspective on your potential gifts. Please note that no assessment test is infallible. The tests are helpful because they may provide fodder for your prayers and searching of the Scriptures. Remember that it is Christ who gives spiritual gifts through the Holy Spirit and thus He is the definitive guide for you.

Lastly, please share your results with Pastor Josh. His ministry is to equip the saints for ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-12) Pastor Josh has a document that describes each of the spiritual gifts, their strengths, their weaknesses, suggestions on how to use the gift and guidance on how to develop and strengthen that particular spiritual gift. Please contact Pastor Josh and he will send you this helpful document. (josh@oakgrovechurch.com or 608-882-4488)
