Spiritual Gifts Inventory

This is not a test so there are no wrong answers. The Spiritual Gifts Inventory consists of 80 statement items.

Some items reflect concrete actions; other items are descriptive traits; and still others are statements of belief.

Helpful Hints in taking the Inventory:

  • Take your time. There is no need to rush.
  • Go with your first response. That is usually your real belief.
  • Do not ask for help from others.
  • Select the one response that best describes you.
  • Allow yourself about 30 minutes to take the inventory.

3–Describes me most of the time, usually true
