Evangelism and Outreach
Led by Pastor Steve Scharnell
In the Great Commission Jesus told us to do four things: Go … make disciples … baptize them … and teach them to obey. Why is this? This is because salvation is the most important thing there is. It is so important that God sent his only Son to die for the whole world, and He did, guaranteeing salvation for all who believe. The work of salvation is done, and yet not everyone is saved. This is because salvation comes only through faith in Jesus Christ. No one comes to the Father except through the Son. Salvation is ONLY through faith in Jesus Christ. This faith comes through the Word. Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ. That is it.
The problem is that the devil does an amazing job in convincing people that salvation can be achieved in a number of ways, i.e., “all words lead to heaven.” This is why we are called. We are called to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with all, because God wishes all to be saved. We have a huge mission field right outside our doors.
Does your heart break when you think about all of the lost? Is your prayer that all the lost be brought to faith? Are you intimidated and/or confused with the myriad of religions and beliefs out there? Are you afraid that you won’t know what to say to someone when they question your faith? Then please prayerfully consider the next Bible study I am offering.
Topics of discussion will include:
- All Places Are Mission Fields
- Reach Your Community
- Reach Out to Different Cultures and Ages
- Get to Know Unbelievers
- Help Others Repent
- Touch Broken Lives
Please join us as we discuss current issues and obstacles in reaching out and serving those in our own community. As the children of God, you have the greatest gift to share. Be an active members of the body of Christ through serving others.
