We recommend the following Spiritual Gifts tests. They were both designed to help you determine which of the nine task-oriented Spiritual Gifts you have been gifted with as a believer in Jesus Christ. Discovering your top two or three gifts will help you know how you can best serve as part of the body of Christ.
In 1 Corinthians 12:7 and 14:12, Paul says: “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good”and “So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church” (TNIV).
There are several important things to note about Spiritual Gifts testing:
- Many questions are experience-based so results of a new or young believer may seem “watered down” and will not necessarily reflect their passion to serve Christ and others.
- These tests are meant only as tools to assist you in finding out what your gifts might be and should not be soley relied upon. Pray and ask God to reveal what gifts you have and how you might use them. Believers around you may also notice what you have been gifted with.
- Remember that the Holy Spirit will give gifts as He determines (1 Corinthians 12:7-11) so do not feel as if you are limited to serve only with the gifts you believe you have been given.
