Spiritual Gifts Survey Questionnaire


Beside each statement, indicate the degree to which it describes you by using the following numerical scores.

"This statement describes me..."
0 = not at all or just a little 2 = more than a little
4 = pretty well 6 = very well! This is me!!

Hints: Try to use the 0 and 6 as much as possible. ALSO, remember that even though you want to consider yourself extra spiritual, IT IS OK to use the 0 or 2 on a given question if it doesn’t represent a STRONG sentiment to you. For example, most Christians know they should share the gospel, but those without the GIFT of evangelism will probably find that they are not as excited about it as is conveyed in the statement, "I seek out unbelievers in a continual manner..." Be honest! Be you!
