One of the qualities that characterized the early church was boldness. They boldly proclaimed their risen Savior even if it meant imprisonment. And then upon release from prison, they prayed for greater boldness (Acts 4:13)! Yet most American Christians today wil not share their faith with even one person. Paul made it his aim that he would only proclaim Jesus Christ crucified (1 Cor 2:2). How can we claim to be faithful followers of Jesus if we do not fulfill His command to go and tell (Matt 28:18-20)? The greenhouse of gathering and the fertilizer of discipleship and service prepare the believer for boldly sharing the good news of Jesus with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone we might come in contact with. Our responsibility is not to save but to share the good news that saves.
We offer multiple training classes to equip believers to boldly share their faith in word and deed. Pastor Tony teaches a FAITH evangelism course, as well as how to use the EvangeCube, and he facilitates opportunities to share your faith in the Mt. Orab community. For more information, contact Pastor Tony.
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. – 1 Corinthians 2:2 (ESV)
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
