Ready to be used by God, but not sure where to serve? You're at the right place!
The following assessment is designed to help believers to be fruitful and fulfilled in meaningful service at Atlee Church. This will help you understand more of who God has made you to be and how you can make a unique contribution that will make a difference for eternity.
What are spiritual gifts? They are special abilities that God gives to believers to be used to build up His kingdom. Read 1 Corinthians 12-13 to see how the Bible describes them. These gifts are chosen by God and not by us. God will give every believer at least one gift and no one gets all of them. This can happen throughout your life in Christ. It is important to remember that a spiritual gift is extraordinary. For example, any believer can have faith but someone with the spiritual gift of faith has it in a way that is beyond most believers.
It is also important to remember what spiritual gifts are not. They are not natural talents (though God can match your gifts with your talents). Spiritual gifts are also not an indication of how good or holy a person is. A believer with the gift of wisdom or leadership is not any better than a believer without those gifts. Finally, spiritual gifts are not given to benefit the believer (though they do) but to benefit The Church.
