The Transformational Discipleship Assessment

Through extensive testing (the largest research project of its kind ever done), the LifeWay Research team has discovered that certain factors are at work in the lives of believers who are progressing in spiritual maturity. We refer to them as the attributes of discipleship:

  1. Bible Engagement
  2. Obeying God and Denying Self
  3. Serving God and Others
  4. Sharing Christ
  5. Exercising Faith
  6. Seeking God
  7. Building Relationships
  8. Unashamed (Transparency)

These eight attributes are biblical factors that consistently show up in the life of a maturing believer. Built on this research, the TDA is a simple, online assessment tool that helps individuals and groups discover their strengths and weaknesses in these eight areas and in basic doctrinal beliefs.
