|Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, that He is Savior, Lord, King and the Light of the World. That’s what it means to be a Lighthouse. Sharing your personal testimony and the hope and light that is within you in gentleness and with respect; having a discussion of the purpose of life and what the Bible says about life after death. It’s sharing with those you meet what has been generously given to you – grace from our loving God, touching lives with the gospel message of Jesus Christ.|
|In order to be saved, people must somehow “hear” the good news. The Apostle Paul asks:|
And how can they believe in the one of whom
they have not heard?
Do what you can to make sure that happens. Ask the Lord to open a door of opportunity for you to personally present the gospel. Give them a book or video that focuses on Christ, involve them in a Bible study or take them to a church service or an evangelistic event where they will hear a gospel message. Remember:
The gospel … is the power of God for the salvation
for everyone who believes.
As you get to know your neighbors and they begin to know and trust you as they begin to see prayer requests answered in their lives, you have an open door to share the gospelwith them.

Methods of Evangelism
Be an Inviter
|Invite your friends and neighbors to something you know they would enjoy; like golf or another sporting event, a craft show, etc. Invite them to a church outreach service, evangelistic crusade, retreat or a Bible study/small group.|
And the number one reason people say they don’t go to church…
“I was not invited.”

|For Christian small groups interested in a “worldview tour,” which examines the biblical worldviews of philosophy, science, labor, and government, consider hosting the 13-week TRUTH PROJECT.
