Understanding Your Spiritual Gifts

 
 

A.P.E.S.T. ASSESSMENT

Jesus’ vision for the Church was to give each member a gift to equip us for ministry so that we would become mature and attain the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4). Jesus fulfilled this vision by giving us Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds, and Teachers. We believe each member is called to one of these five gifts, which can be determined through this A.P.E.S.T. Assessment.
