The ultimate goal of the church is worship. Missions exists because worship does not.

PRAYER. It all starts with prayer! Jesus often took time away so He could be alone with His Father in prayer. He knew how important it was to talk to God about people, before He talked to people about God…and the same is true for us. When we start by praying for the people we are seeking to reach with the gospel, it prepares their hearts to hear the good news of Jesus.

CARE. Jesus also modeled how important it is to care for people’s needs. Jesus often healed the sick, fed the hungry and helped the hurting. He cared for the whole person, not just their spiritual needs. In the same way, we must love those we are trying to reach. We do this by listening to them and caring for them. They are not projects, they’re people!

SHARE. After prayer and care, we must lovingly share the truth of the gospel message clearly and confidently. When we invite someone to put their faith in Christ, we are inviting them to make the biggest and best decision of their entire lives. A restored relationship with God is the absolute best news on the planet, so don’t be afraid to ask them to put their trust in Jesus!

Ways to Share the Gospel
1 Peter 3:15, “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”

1) The Pray and Say This is  an easy method you can use anywhere. It’s quite simple, just tell people that you have a ministry of praying for people and sharing the love of God. Then, ask them what you can pray for them, then pray with them and pray the gospel in your prayer. 

2) The Romans Road: Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, 10:9-10, 10:13

3) The Four Spiritual Laws 

  • God loves you (John 3:16; 10:10).
  • Man is sinful and separated from God. (Romans 3:23; 6:23).
  • Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin. (Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:3 – 6; John 14:6).
  • We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (John 1:12; 3:1 – 8; Ephesians 2:8 – 9; Revelation 3:20).

4) Steps to Peace with God 

  • God’s Plan – Peace and life (God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life. The Bible says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
  • Our Problem – Separation: Our sin separates us from God.
  • God’s Remedy – The Cross: Jesus Died on the cross and rose again. Paying the penalty for our sins, Jesus bridged the gap between us and God.
  • Our Response – Receive Christ: We must trust and receive Christ as our Lord and Savior. (John 1:12)

5) The Share Jesus Without Fear Questions

* Do you have any kind of spiritual beliefs?

* To you, who is Jesus?

* Do you think there is a heaven or a hell?

* If you died tonight, where would you go?

* By the way, if what you were believing is not true, would you want to know?

6) The G.O.S.P.E.L Journey

  • God created us to be with him (Genesis 1-2)
  • Our sins separate us from him (Genesis 3)
  • Sins Cannot be Removed by good deeds (Isaiah 64:6)
  • Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. (John 19:30)
  • Everyone who trusts in him alone has eternal life (1 John 5:11-13)
  • Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever (John 10:10)

7) Way of the MasterWhat Did Jesus Do?

Would you consider yourself a good person?

Do you think you have kept the Ten Commandments?

Judgment by the Ten Commandments: If you were judged based on those 10 commandments, would you be guilty or innocent?

Have you told a lie?, Ever stolen something? Ever used the Lord’s name in vain?

Destiny: do you think you will go to heaven or hell? 

8) 3 Circle Method

* God’s perfect plan * our sin * what Jesus did for us.

9) 2 Ways to Live






6) TWO WAYS TO LIVE: rebellion against God or reconciliation with God- Talk to God, Submit to Jesus, Trust Jesus

10) One Verse Evangelism Method

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

Styles of Sharing the Gospel

Confrontational Approach (Peter)— Acts 2:22-41

If Peter was convinced he was right, there was no stopping him. He was direct, he was bold, and he was to the point. Some of you are like Peter.

Instead of complying, he defied. Instead of being quiet, he proclaimed.

Many of you know or have observed people are who will walk up to anyone:

“Hey, How is it going?  Have you read your bible today? Do you know Jesus!”

Intellectual Approach (Paul)— Acts 17:15-34

The Apostle Paul was a thinker. He wrote ½ the NT including Romans.

He articulated the gospel to Greeks, Jews, Romans in a contextually appropriate ways.

His approach to the Unknown God at Athens is a testimony of how to present a rational case, and debate philosophers in such a way that they want to know more.

CS Lewis was like this. Many come to faith because of his book “Mere Christianity.”

Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel and others like him, have been effective with apologetics.

Invitational Approach (Samaritan Women) – John 4

When Jesus encountered this woman and transformed her life, she ran back to town and invited people to: “Come and See.”

This simple invitation resulted in Jesus staying in their town for two more days.

Many people became His followers because of her invitation

If you are excited about what God is doing in your life and in this church? Invite them to see what God is doing and to hear others proclaiming the news.


Testimonial Approach (Blind Man)— John 9:1-15,25

This man, born blind, could only speak from his experience.

He confidently declared: “One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.

Life change is hard to argue with. You may not know all that you believe, but when your life has been transformed, it’s worth talking about acknowledging Jesus as the reason.

Relational Approach (Matthew) – Luke 5:27-29

Instead of inviting people to church as the first step, Matthew invited fellow tax collectors and sinners to his home. Do you enjoy having people into your home, sharing a meal, and spending time in conversation? Many people may never be reached until someone takes the time to build a deeper relationship with them.

Servant Approach (Dorcas/Tabitha) – Acts 9.

Gifts of hospitality, the welcoming of strangers, acts of service to those in need are all viable forms of evangelism.  It’s a tangible way of expressing the love of Jesus.

Find ways to provide tangible assistance, water bottles at the park, mow a neighbor’s lawn, provide food to a new mom or a shut-in senior adult. Servant evangelism is a great way to love others and open the opportunity to share the gospel.

Conversational Approach (Philip) – Acts 8

The interaction between Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch demonstrates evangelistic conversations. These may be planned or spontaneous opportunities from God.

A spiritually thirsty person is drawn by the Lord to a particular time and place.

They may be ready to take another step towards Jesus and at the same time, you are being led to meet that person and introduce them to Jesus.
