Spiritual Health Assessment
None of us are an accident. God created us for a purpose: to live a purpose driven life. We are called to balance God’s five purposes in our life:

Honor: Planned for God’s pleasure
Connect: You were formed for God’s family
Grow: You were created to become like Christ
Serve: You were shaped for serving God
Share: You were made for a mission

It is our calling, our purpose as followers of Jesus, to balance these five aspects of the life he has called us to. But how do you know if you are balancing the five purposes in your life? To help you evaluate your own life in light of the five purposes, we have put together the Purpose Driven Life Spiritual Health Assessment. The assessment involves rating yourself on a series of statements designed to get at the heart issues behind each of the purposes. Once you have completed the assessment you will have a snapshot of how well you balance the five purposes in your life. This snapshot will enable you to see areas in which you may need to pursue further growth and areas where you have a strength that you could share with others who may need your insight to help them grow in that area. We have included a health plan that gives some ways you can start to grow on purpose.

It is important to understand that this assessment and the items contained in it are only a starting point and are not intended to be all-inclusive of every aspect of life and faith. As a starting point, they are merely a way to begin thinking about how you are balancing God’s purposes for you life. Remember, we will not be perfect this side of heaven so don’t use this assessment to grade yourself in terms of perfection. The assessment is to be used as a way to help you see where you might want to pursue growth and to point you in the direction of growth opportunities. This will help you form a plan that will help you balance God’s five purposes in your life.
As you read each statement, decide to what degree that statement is characteristic or descriptive of you. Use the following scale to make your assessment.
