This is not a test, so there are no wrong answers. The Spiritual Gifts Survey consists of 80

others are statements of belief.

* Select the one response you feel best characterizes yourself and place that number in the blank provided. Record
your answer in the blank beside each item.
* Do not spend too much time on any one item. Remember, it is not a test. Usually your immediate response is best.
* Please give an answer for each item. Do not skip any items.
* Do not ask others how they are answering or how they think you should answer.
* Work at your own pace.
