SPIRITUAL GIFTS

ABOUT THE GIFTS

Spiritual gifts are special qualities that God gives each of us as believers to equip us for serving each other and the world. Learning about our spiritual gifts gives us a better idea of where we fit into service. Click on the link below to take our free spiritual gifts test.

“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.” Romans 12:4-6

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
