Spiritual Growth Assessment Process
PDF Print E-mail

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, you life’s call is to grow in Christlikeness. Accomplishing this challenging assignment requires growing in your understanding of what it means to be a Christian, expanding your personal knowledge of biblical truth, and applying daily what you learn. Thought the presence of His indwelling Spirit, God enables you to know, obey, and serve Him. The Spiritual Growth Assessment 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, and ministering to others. After completing the assessment, please contact the Discipleship Pastor for guidance on growth opportunities.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS ASSESSMENT

Helping you Discover your Spiritual Gift - Ken Hemphill defines a spiritual gift as...“an individual manifestation of grace from the Father that enables you to serve Him and thus play a vital role in His plan for the redemption of the world." Peter Wagner defines a spiritual gift as...“a special attribute given by the Holy Spirit to every member of the Body of Christ according to God’s grace for use within the context of the Body.” Gene Wilkes uses this definition: "A spiritual gift is an expression of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers which empowers them to serve the body of Christ, the church." HERE is a Spiritual Gift test to help you discover your gifts. After completion, contact any FBC pastor to discover how you can use your gift.
