Know Your Spiritual Gifts

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of activities,  but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good."       1Corinthians 12:4-7

Did you know that your education, training, and skills do not determine your spiritual gifts? Every Christian is empowered by the Holy Spirit with at least one spiritual gift. The children of God are to cooperately use their gifts to further God's kingdom. 

If you would like to know your spiritual gifts, click on the link below and answer the questions as honestly and accurately as you can. The test results will show your top 5 spiritual gifts.

Spiritual Gifts Test

But, don't stop there!

After you get your results, do the following:

  1. Pray for guidance on how you can use your gift(s) for God's glory.
  2. Join ministries that will allow you to work in each of the 5 gifts. Let the Holy Spirit lead you to the ministry or ministries for you.
St. John Members,  make sure you email  your test results to Pastor Reaves ( ) after taking the test.
