Who Has Spiritual Gifts?
Each Christian has at least one spiritual gift. The Bible says in Ephesians 4:7 “But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.” If you read in 1 Corinthians 12:7 it says “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” Then in verse 11 it states “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” These passages of scripture confirm that each of us has a spiritual gift, if not more than one.
It takes several individual parts to make up the church body. You are a special member of the body of Christ and your part is needed to make the church successful in its ministries for the church members as well as the community it serves. As a member of the body God already has plans for your spiritual gifts. He has an expectation that you would listen to His calling and to use the gifts He has given you.
What Are Your Spiritual Gifts?
Not sure where you should share your gifts? Need assistance in understanding where your strengths lie? Take the spiritual gifts assessment to help you better understand where you can best serve. You should pray for discernment prior to taking the assessment.
Discovering and exercising your God-given spiritual gifts allows you to experience maximum fulfillment with minimum frustration in your Christian life and ministry. For that reason, we are pleased to offer this personal Spiritual Gifts Survey to anyone who is interested in identifying which gifts they have to share with Christ's church body and the community we serve.
Join a Fondren Ministry Department
Once you have completed the spiritual gifts inventory, we invite you to review the information on our Ministries Council page that includes information about the various ministries that operate within Fondren. We would love for you to connect with one of our Elders who support and lead our councils to discuss how your newly defined spiritual gifts can be used at Fondren.
