Church Quake.jpg


Church Quake is a spiritual growth experiment. The hope isn't for extraordinary growth in a few individuals, but rather an ordinary step of faith taken by the whole church. Believing that growth is most powerful and most successful when everyone participates, Beach Bible Church is expectantly looking for what God might do through us.

Online Assessment

In order to know what one's next step is to take, he or she needs to know where they currently are. This anonymous online assessment will assess a person's heart and knowledge about ten areas that impact a person's spiritual health.

After taking the test, each participant should add up the two 1 to 5 scores for each section and give themselves an overall score for the section. For example, if a person puts themselves at a 3 in the section about how they feel about hospitality and a 2 in their knowledge of how to be hospitable, their overall score will be a 5 for the section as a whole.


To participate in the campaign, all one must do is to commit to try and increase their score by 1 point over the next year. We believe it is best to make that commitment to grow with others who are committed as well; who can encourage and hold one another accountable.

growth resources

To aid people in their growth, here are some suggested resources for each category addressed in the assessment. Please don't hesitate to suggest resources you may have found to be helpful. We hope to grow this section throughout the campaign as we work together.
