Spiritual Gifts Survey

A Spiritual Gifts Survey is a set of statements and/or characteristics that describe you. The statements are used to determine what your God-given gifts are to better guide you in serving Him. This is not specifically designed for the church as a building but as The Church as a whole and how you fit in.

This is not a test and it is not graded. Depending on how you answer each statement, the totals from certain questions get added together to determine the gifts you have.

The more honest you answer these statements, the more accurate your survey results will be. We take care in reviewing these individually and will get back to you with your results. We will not pressure you into anything. We simply want to share with you your results and answer any questions you may have.
