Evangelism Methods is a topic-based study that can be applied to any existing ministry to adults.
An overview of the four lessons are below:
“or do you despise the riches of his kindness, restraint, and patience, not recognizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4)
The focus verse of this evangelistic method is from the book of Romans, one of the 13 epistles penned by the Apostle Paul. The writing took place not long before Paul’s journey to Jerusalem where he presented money collected from Gentile churches for the poor believers in Jerusalem.
The Nations Can Know
“All of our praise rises to the one who is strong enough to make you strong, exactly as preached in Jesus Christ, precisely as revealed in the mystery kept secret for so long but now an open book through the prophetic Scriptures. All the nations of the world can now know the truth and be brought into obedient belief, carrying out the orders of God, who got all this started, down to the very last letter.” Romans 16:25–26
It is believed Paul wrote this letter to the church in Rome while he was in Corinth. Paul wanted to remind the believers in Rome of some fundamental truths of the gospel. Paul uses this letter to outline, support, and defend the gospel of Jesus Christ. Methods of how to reach Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Mormonism are discussed in this topic study.
There Is No Fear
“Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
One individual from the Bible who had many reasons to be concerned, anxious, and even afraid, is Joshua. Caleb and Joshua were among the men Moses sent to explore Canaan. While most of the men reported on the overwhelming size of the people who inhabited the land and the futility of Israel’s attempt to conquer them, Joshua and Caleb spoke out against them. They urged the Israelite community not to be afraid of the people inhabiting the land and reminded them the Lord would go with them and defeat the other nation. (Numbers 13 and 14)
“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15, NIV).
The Apostle Peter is one of the most well known disciples. Thanks to Scripture we know much about him: he was the brother of Andrew, a fisherman in business with James and John, the leader and spokesman for the 12 disciples, and by far the most impulsive in the group. Peter’s life was full of emotion, questions, boldness, and even doubt. While some criticize Peter for taking his eyes off Jesus and sinking in the water, others applaud him for having the courage to get out of the boat.Download
