Evangelism
Guide
Even though you believe in Jesus, it's sometimes difficult to share the news with others. Chaplain Bill Fay has some simple tips on how to share the Gospel without an argument.

Questions to Begin With


First of all, ask some basic questions:
Do you have any kind of spiritual belief?
To you, who is Jesus?
Do you think there is a heaven or a hell?
If you fell over and died, where would you go? If heaven, why do you believe you'll go to heaven?
If what you believed was not true, would you want to know it? If the response is "yes," open your Bible. If it is "no," do nothing. Helpful Scripture


The following scriptures are helpful in sharing the Good News:


All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:3

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me."
John 14:6

Because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For man believes with his heart and so is justified, and he confesses with his lips and so is saved. The scripture says, "No one who believes in him will be put to shame."
Romans 10:9-11

And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.
1 John 5:11-12

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:20

Questions to End With


The Gospel is simple. Ask people the following questions to lead them to Christ:
Are you a sinner? Do you want forgiveness of your sins? Do you believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and rose again? Are you willing to surrender your life to Jesus Christ? Are you ready to invite Jesus Christ into your life and into your heart? If they accept, they become a member of the Family of God. Prayer


It's also helpful to pray with new believers. Here is a suggested prayer:

"Lord Jesus, here is a person who has received you as Savior and Lord. He/she recognizes that he/she is a sinner and understands that You died on the cross for our sins. Thank You for forgiving our sins. We ask that you take control of his/her life. Amen."
