Spiritual Gifts Test
This Spiritual Gifts Test is being provided, as a resource, for use by students of the Soul Care Ministries International Institute (SCMi Institute). This resource is being brought to you in partnership with Spiritual Gifts Test. This test is trusted by more than 1500 churches, and ministries, and has been taken by more than one million people.
This test can identify serving gifts, foundation gifts, revelatory gifts, and manifestation gifts. However, we cannot guarantee what gifts you have, but this resource is a helpful tool to use in getting an idea of how you are gifted. We encourage you to take the test; then talk to other Christians in your church or community to assist you in discovering your gifts. You may even desire to serve in different ministries to see what fits and how you can further glorify God in your gifts. God may even transform some of your known natural gifts and talents into spiritual gifts.
God has given each believer the manifestation of spiritual gift(s) that He wants each of us to use for His glory. Each person upon accepting the gift of salvation, by receiving Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior, receives the Holy Spirit inside as a seal of his/her salvation (cf. Ephesians 1:12–14). It is the Holy Spirit who graces us with spiritual gifts(s).
There are no ungifted believers (cf. 1 Peter 4:10). We, here at SCMi, often find that students (1) don’t fully know what their spiritual gifts are, (2) have not experienced the manifestation of their spiritual gifts, and/or (3) some of their spiritual gift(s) have not been activated.
God calls and sets apart some from birth (cf. Psalm 22:9-10, Psalm 139:13-16, Isaiah 49:1-5, Jeremiah 1:5, Galatians 1:15-16). The Holy Spirit even graced Jesus from the womb (cf. Luke 1:15-16).
The Bible teaches that spiritual gifts are a work of the Holy Spirit (cf. 1 Cor. 12:7-11), not earned or merited, and given by grace (cf. Romans 12:6). We can glean, from the scriptures, two time when the Holy Spirit graces believers with spiritual gifts:
- at the time of salvation (cf. Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14), and
- through the laying on of hands (cf. 2 Timothy 1:6-7
The Bible, in Ephesians 4:7 (NKJV), says “But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift”. In 1 Corinthians 12:7 (NKJV), the Bible states “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”
Some Reasons God Graces Us With Gifts of the Spirit are to:
- empower us to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and advance the King of God through outreach ministries (cf. Acts 1:8),
- manifest the gifts in promoting the common good of the body of Christ (cf. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7),
- inspire members of the body of Christ to work together using the most helpful gifts (cf. 1 Corinthians 12:8-31),
- edify and build up the church Church spiritually (cf. 1 Corinthians 14:12 ),
- provide to the Church apostles as special messengers and representatives; prophets as speakers of messages from God to the people; evangelists as spreaders of the good news of salvation, and pastors and teachers to shepherd, guide, and instruct (cf. Ephesians 4:11),
- fully equip and perfect the people of God for works of service, to build up the body of Christ until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of Christ Jesus, grow spiritually and become mature believers, manifest His spiritual completeness, and work together in exercising our spiritual gifts (cf. Ephesians 4:11-13),
- function as a steward of His grace and serve others (cf. 1 Peter 4:10),
“For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable [for He does not withdraw what He has given, nor does He change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call]” (Romans 11:28-30 AMP Version)
