Spiritual Gifts Test
with Automatic Analysis
God has blessed each born again Christian with one or moreSpiritual Gifts. Do you know what Spiritual Gift(s) God has given you? If you have been wondering about this, then you have come to the right place!
This on-line Spiritual Gifts Test (sometimes referred to as a Spiritual Gifts Inventory, Assessment, Survey, Analysis, Questionnaire, or Quiz) will help you determine what Spiritual Gift(s) God has given you. The test performs an assessment of 28 Gifts by presenting you with 140 positive statements that you are to respond to by selecting a number between 9 and 0 to indicate how well each statement applies to you, how well it describes you, or how much you agree with the statement.
This test is designed for Christian adults (a youth version of the test is available by clicking HERE ). If you have been a Christian for at least a few years, you should use your personal experiences as the basis for your responses. If you consider yourself to be a new Christian, then your responses should be based on how well each statement describes the desire of your heart (even if you have not yet done what the statement talks about). If you are NOT a Christian, then you should NOT take this test.
This test is not specific to any one Christian Denomination. It should be noted that there is some disagreement among Christians as to exactly how many Spiritual Gifts there are. This test covers a rather broad spectrum of 28 Spiritual Gifts and God given talents.
Please keep in mind that this test was written by people, not by God, and as such it is certainly not perfect. It should be used as a starting place to begin to discover your Spiritual Gifts, but not as an absolute indicator. The test may not always indicate your true Spiritual Gifts. It is just one tool in what should be a life long search for how God has blessed you so you can be a blessing to others.

Test Instructions (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):
The test should take less than an hour to complete. If you don’t have that much time now, then you can ‘Bookmark’ this page or add it to your ‘Favorites’ and take the test later. You must complete the test in one sitting because a partially completed test can NOT be saved.
Respond to each statement quickly with your first feeling. Don’t be too modest. However, unless you can walk on water, you will probably respond to more statements with low numbers than with high numbers. If in doubt, then respond with 0.
Select 9 or 8 if the statement describes you exactly or very well.
Select 7 or 6 if you think the statement applies to you better than to most other people.
Select 5 or 4 if the statement somewhat applies to you.
Select 3 or 2 if you can only slightly relate to the statement.
Select 1 or 0 it the statement does not apply to you or you disagree with the statement.
The object is NOT to enter all high numbers, but to distinguish between Gifts that you DO or DO NOT have. If you enter more than a dozen or so 9’s, the analysis process will not be able to clearly distinguish your top Gift(s).
When you have responded to ALL 140 statements, click on‘Submit Spiritual Gifts Test for Analysis’ at the bottom. Your test will be automatically analyzed.

People come to me when they need help in desperate situations, and I am able to point them to a service or ministry that can help them. I feel empowered to stand alone for Christ in a hostile, unbelieving environment. I readily identify with Paul’s desire for others to be single as he was. I enjoy using my artistic talents to make things that bring glory to God. It is easy for me to perceive whether a person is honest or dishonest. I have spoken words of hope that God confirmed in others by the Holy Spirit. I am attracted to non-believers because of my desire to win them to Christ. I have urged others to seek Biblical solutions to their affliction or suffering. I hold fast to my personal belief in the truth even in the presence of ridicule, apparent failure, or pain. I can give sacrificially because I know that God will meet my needs. I feel strongly that my prayers for a sick person effect wholeness for that person. When I serve the Lord, I really don’t care who gets the credit. Our home is always open to whoever God brings to us. I find myself praying when I possibly should be doing other things.

Studying the Bible and sharing my insights with others is very gratifying for me. I have interpreted what was said in tongues so as to help others worship God without confusion. Sometimes when I pray, it seems as if the Spirit steps in and prays in words I cannot understand. I have felt an unusual presence of God and personal confidence when important decisions needed to be made. Sometimes, I express my love for God by writing poems, songs, prayers, or devotionals. I have been responsible for guiding tasks in my church or Christian group to success. I feel God has called me to go forth to establish new churches where people have never heard the gospel. I am single and enjoy it. (Respond 0 if married) I like to make hand made gifts for others that will remind them of God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit. I can sense whether a person is moved by the Holy Spirit, an evil spirit, or by their own flesh. It is a joy to speak uplifting words to people who are discouraged. I have led others to a decision for salvation through faith in Christ. I can challenge others without making them feel condemned. I am totally convinced God will fulfill his word even if He is not doing so yet. God has used me to meet someone’s financial or material need.
