The Doctrine of Spiritual Gifts
What is a “Spiritual Gift”?
Developing the capacity you need to function effectively in your spiritual gift.
The individual spiritual gifts found in the New Testament
What are the categories of spiritual gifts?
The individual spiritual gifts and their categories.
There are two major categories of spiritual gifts found in the Bible.
a. Temporary spiritual gifts were operational during the pre-canon period of the Church Age, i.e., from approx. AD 30 to AD 96.
b. Permanent spiritual gifts function throughout the Church Age, until the Rapture of the Church, whenever that occurs.
Temporary spiritual gifts only functioned during the pre-canon period.
Permanent spiritual gifts function throughout the Church Age, but are emphasized from the time of the completion of the Canon forward.
You can further divide the temporary spiritual gifts into three kinds: foundational, sign, and revelatory.
You can further divide the permanent spiritual gifts into two kinds: speaking and serving.

Every believer has a spiritual gift in his portfolio of invisible assets; this gift is given to him at salvation.
When a person has mastered the functions of impersonal unconditional love then his gift will function to the maximum.
Your spiritual gift will not function to the maximum before you reach spiritual maturity, for its maximum function comes in spiritual adulthood.
