0:00 – INTRO
1:17 – FAITH IDENTITY. EVANGELISM: proclaiming the “good news” (“gospel”) of Jesus Christ to a non-Christian
3:10 – THE GOSPEL: 1. SIN, 2. GOD, 3. JESUS’ DEATH, 4. JESUS’ RESURRECTION, 5. SALVATION, 6. FAITH
4:15 – HOW TO TRANSITION from presenting the gospel to accepting Jesus? 1. GENERAL UNDERSTANDING (“Does this make sense?”) 2. SPECIFIC ACTION (“Do you feel like you’re ready to become a Christian?” “I can lead us in prayer right now, and you can put your faith in Jesus.”). IF THEY SAY THEY’RE NOT READY YET–THAT’S OKAY! Remind them this is a really important decision (urgency).
7:13 – WHAT IF THEY WANT TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN? Lead them in a PRAYER FOR SALVATION. 1. Admit they are a sinner and want to repent. 2. Thank Jesus for dying for them and asking him to be Savior. 3. They are “born again” and have eternal life.
8:36 – PRAYER FOR SALVATION. Go back through the points of the gospel you shared. They can pray and repeat after you: “Dear God, I confess I am a sinner. Thank you that Jesus died on the cross to forgive my sin and rose again. I want to trust and follow Jesus as my Savior. Thank you that if I trust in Jesus alone, you give me the gift of a right relationship with you forever. Amen.” You can remind them that salvation is theirs (Romans 10:9)! Help them take their first steps in their new Christian faith.
10:35 – SO WHAT?
