How to Share Your Testimony

People can resort to arguments, but they can’t argue with results. In our efforts to grow in the gospel, we must learn how to share our testimony of how we came to faith in Christ.  There are many arguments out there regarding the validity of the Bible or the skepticism concerning a God you cannot see, but most people respect personal stories.  We live in a time when people are very defensive regarding what they believe, but a good majority…

Gospel Intentionality

If you want a church to grow biblically, you must focus on evangelism.  Much of what happens in churches can be attributed to transfer growth vs. conversion growth.  Evangelism can catch fire in a church when everyone assumes the responsibility to grow in the gospel. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen [2 Pet. 3:18]. Evangelism must be out…
