Bible NarrativeKnowing God’s Story

This 88 question test will cover the breadth of the Bible’s story, beginning with creation and ending with the missionary work of the early church. Like the keys on a piano, this assessment will allow you to review God’s work in depth, utilizing two kinds of questions. The majority of them will focus on the basic elements of the story. Another set of questions, will play off the main story and get at your story, looking at the extent to which you apply what you know.

Christian VirtuesThe Fruit of the Spirit Survey

This survey only has 44 questions but it can be taken in two different ways. One way is to simply reflect on the statements yourself. Another way is to ask a close friend or two to fill out the assessment on your behalf. Either way, the idea is to see evidence of God’s spiritual fruit in our lives. In addition to the list that is given in Galatians 5 (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control) we will also look at humility, hope and compassion. Like the Bible Knowledge exam, this tool can be accessed online and provide immediate feedback. (This material is adapted from "The Christian Life Profile" by Randy Frazee through Zondervan.)

Christian PracticeCore Values Assessment

The Christian and Missionary Alliance has a list of seven core values. These values underlie basic Christian practices as found in the adult discipleship ministry of First Alliance Church. We will be living more like Jesus when they show up on the pages of our daily life.

  • Lost people matter to God. He wants them found.
  • Prayer is the primary work of the people of God.
  • Everything we have belongs to God. We are his stewards.
  • Knowing and obeying God's word is fundamental to all true success.
  • Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple.
  • Without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit we can accomplish nothing.
  • Achieving God's purposes means taking faith-filled risks. This always involves change.

Use this assessment to see how well your life reflects these values. Like all self-evaluation tools, it will represent a snapshot in time. Take it now and look for areas of growth. Take it again some time in the future and look for change. One of the best ways to see where we need to go is to start with a healthy assessment of where we are.
