We all have gifts. Some of the gifts God has given you fall into the category of “natural talents.” Talents are given to everyone. The saying “you’re born with it” is really true. At our physical birth, we’re born with natural abilities that we can do well. Things like sports, cooking, artistic ability, and math aptitude would fall into this category.
The writers of the Bible tell us that at our spiritual birth we receive a different set of gifts called spiritual gifts. This isn’t anything weird or crazy. Spiritual gifts are something God has given us that are a part of who we are that helps us live out who God created us to be. God wants us to be knowledgeable about spiritual gifts; every Christ-follower has been given at least one gift; God wants us to use our gifts; he’s given us gifts to equip us to be able to serve, and God has given us opportunities to use these gifts.
To help you learn about your gifts we have an assessment we invite you to take. The link to the assessment is located at the bottom of this page. The chart below shows you the spiritual gifts this assessment targets. You can read about these gifts in 1 Corinthians 12:1, 1 Peter 4:10, 1 Timothy 4:14, Ephesians 4:11-12, and Ephesians 2:10 but you will also learn about them in detail after you’ve taken the assessment.
After you’ve taken the gift assessment you’ll receive a profile sheet for each of the gifts you’ve identified. The sheet will give you more information about the gift and possible serving opportunities to use the gift. We will contact you as well to encourage you with different ministry opportunities to use your gifts.
Our gift discovery journey is part of our ongoing spiritual development and maturity. In fact, you might want to retake the gift assessment a year from now to see if your results change after having experienced new serving opportunities.
We are looking forward to helping you with this part of your spiritual journey as you grow into who God created you to be.
