Spiritual Gifts

The Apostle Paul discusses the topic of spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians, chapter 12.  He says in verse 7, ". . . the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal."  He goes on to say in verse 12, "For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ."

We at St. David believe that knowing our Spiritual Gifts is essential to serving God.  Also, knowing your Spiritual Gifts can open doors for great ways to serve the Lord according to His divine will. We have made this Spiritual Gift Inventory available to you to help you understand the gifts God has placed in you for His service.  By answering a list of questions, your strengths can emerge in possibly unexpected ways.

You can:

  • Obtain an Inventory from the church or complete the spiritual gifts analysis online
  • Answer the questions in about 20 minutes in the privacy of your home
  • Self-grade or schedule an interview with the Pastor for scoring
  • Learn about the definitions of your strengths
  • Decide how you are going to unwrap and use your gift
