Spiritual growth

Your spiritual journey as a follower of Christ began the moment you admitted personal sin and placed your trust in Christ as Savior and Lord. From that point, until death or the return of Christ, your life’s call is to grow in Christlikeness.

God expects His children to grow spiritually and His Word encourages personal examination as an element of growth.

The assessment (download from the link to the right) helps you think carefully about your spiritual development related to six specific spiritual disciplines; abiding in Christ, living in the Word, praying in faith, fellowshipping with believers, witnessing to the world, ministering to others.

Use these tools to help you to understand where you are spiritually and how God has gifted you.

What the Bible says about spiritual gifts:

Here are a few verses to get you thinking about what you need to reinforce (1 Corinthians 12:4-11):

  • Each believer is given at least one gift.
    (1 Corinthians 12:7)
  • The Holy Spirit determines who receives which gifts.
    (1 Corinthians 12:11)
  • Each gift is equally valuable. (1 Corinthians 12:21-26)
  • We are to use our gifts to serve others for the benefit of the body. (Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:12)
  • We are commanded to use our gifts. (1 Peter 4:10)
  • Exercising our gifts will help us develop spiritual maturity. (Ephesians 4:13)

Pray for revelation:

God will reveal your gifts through His Holy Spirit. Believers should pray and study what God says about gifts in His Word and also remember God uses other believers to affirm our gift.

Once gifts are discovered:

Once your discover your gifts, find a place to serve God. He has given you these gifts to help his body of believers to grow. You will bless other as you serve and you will also be blessed understand and knowing the purpose in which you were created
