Classic Models of Personal Evangelism
  • Value of Historic Plans

    something
  • They should be considered for at least two
    reasons
  • 1. Valuable part of history of evangelism in the
    church
  • Anyone literate in the subject should be familiar
    with these
  • 2. Elements can be tailored to contemporary
    applications
  • Each adds a unique Tool to our war chest
    against Enemy of souls

Explosion, 1996
  • The point of reference / wellspring of modern
    personal evangelism methods
  • Origins of the title E.E.
  • Response to population explosion
  • Basic addition could not compete with explosion
  • Requires multiplication through lay evangelism

4
Key Prefatory Principles To the EE Program
  • Evangelism is one component within the larger
    discipleship ministry of the Church
  • Trainer and trainees
  • Prayer Partner Ministry
  • Spiritual Parenting
  • Personal evangelism does not supplant other modes
    of viable evangelism
  • Laymen are the strategic key to effective
    evangelism

    win a soul

  • Learn illustrations (flesh out / clarify gospel
    outline)
  • Build on Outline
  • Not a canned approach
  • Intermediary method between memorization and
    spontaneous witness

    appropriately
  • Have you heard of the Four Spiritual Principles?
  • Could I get your opinion of a special booklet
    whose contents have changed my life?
  • You know, I came across a little booklet that
    clearly explains how we can have a personal
    relationship with God.
  • Ive recently found a way to express my faith
    that really makes sense, and Id like to share it
    with you.

23
God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for
your life God loves you and created you to know
Him personally
Gods Love John 316 Gods Plan John 173
What prevents us from knowing God personally?...
24
Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore
he cannot know and experience Gods love and plan
for his life. Man is sinful and separated from
God, so we cannot know Him personally or
experience His love.
Sinful Romans 323 Separated Romans 623
The 3rd principle explains the only way to bridge
this gulf ...
25
Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's
sin. Through Him you can know and experience
God's love and plan for your life. Jesus Christ
is God's only provision for man's sin. Through
Him alone we can know God personally and
experience God's love .
He died in our place Rom 58 He rose from the
dead 1 Cor. 153-6 He is the only way to God Jn
146
It is not enough just to know these 3 truths
26
We must individually receive Jesus as Savior
Lord then we can know experience Gods love
plan for our lives. We must individually receive
Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord then we can know
God personally and experience His love.
We must receive Christ (Jn 112) We must receive
Christ through faith (Eph 28-9) When we receive
Christ, we experience a new birth (Jn 31-8) We
receive Christ by personal invitation (Rev. 320)
You can receive Christ right now by faith through
prayer
