1 Evangelism 101 Pastor Leon McDaniels, Sr., M.A., M.Div., Paradise Baptist Church, Oakland, California Student Workbook

2 ED 101 ASSURANCE OF SALVATION Jesus Christ said, Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with Me. (Rev. 3:20) Coupled with this wonderful truth in the Gospel of John that, to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. (John 1:12). If you have received Jesus Christ, God s Son, as your Savior, according to the scriptures above, you have become a child of God. If you have not accepted God into your life, this lesson will give you the biblical truths as to how you can enter into the family of God, and have Everlasting life. TO ASSURE IS TO PUT BEYOND ALL DOUBT. This lesson on Assurance of Salvation will help introduce some basic promises God has made to Christians. Begin to memorize, meditate on, study and apply 1 John 5: You will become convinced of the reality of this promise. On the basis of this testimony - god s written Word you can know that you have the Lord Jesus, and with Him, eternal life. I. THE TWO DIAGNOSTIC QUESTIONS A. Have you come to a place in your spiritual life, where you know for certain that, if you were to die today, you would go to heaven? B. Suppose you were to die tonight and stand before God, and He said to you: Why should I let you into my heaven? What would you say? MEMORIZE I JOHN 5: (ASSURANCE OF SALVATION) 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. II. EXPLORING I JOHN 5:11-13 A. Based on this scripture, who gives eternal life? B. Where is eternal life found? ED (2013) Page 1

3 C. Who has eternal life? D. Who does not have eternal life? GOD HAS GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE Based on Romans 5:8, what did God do to show that He loved you? According to the diagram below, what results of man s sinfulness are listed in Isaiah 59:2? Notice four areas of your sins in Isaiah 59: A. (vs. 3a) We sin with our hands. That represents what we are is wrong. B. (vs. 3b) We sin with our lips. That represents what we are is wrong. (Psalm 141:3-4) C. (vs. 7a) We sin with our feet. That represents where we are is wrong. (Proverbs 6:18) D. (vs. 7b) We sin with our thoughts. That represents what we are is wrong. (Philippians 4:8) Read Ephesians 2:8-9. Why do human efforts always fail to reach God? ED (2013) Page 2

4 According to the diagram below, what means did Jesus provide to reconcile man back to himself? Read John 1:12. What two components are mentioned to become a child of God? In John 10:27-29, Jesus made some promises to His followers. What are they? ED (2013) Page 3

5 Based on II Corinthians 5:17, what happens if a man is in Christ? Which of the following changes have you experienced since becoming a Christian? Inner Peace Victory Over Sin New Awareness of Sin New Love for God Desire to Read the Bible Attitude Change Sense of Forgiveness New Concern for Others APPLICATION Now, write your response to these two questions: I. THE TWO DIAGNOSTIC QUESTIONS A. Have you come to a place in your spiritual life, where you know for certain that if you were to die today, you would go to heaven? B. Suppose you were to die tonight and stand before God, and He said to you: Why should I let you into my heaven? What would you say? ED (2013) Page 4

6 ED 101 THE SOURCE OF EVANGELISM T he Source of Evangelism is its place of origin; the prime cause of; from whence it springs or stems. God, Himself went in search of the first lost man, Adam. (Genesis 3:8, 9). He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to the world to procure salvation through His own death and resurrection. (John 3:16; Romans 10:9). The Holy Spirit is the dynamics or power of evangelism. It must be understood and accepted that is the source of evangelism. I. EVANGELISM DEFINED: A. The Proclaiming of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, 1) That men should come to put their trust in God through Him, 2) accepting Him as Savior, and 3) serve Him as Lord of their personal lives, and 4) in corporate fellowship of the church. B. The proclaiming of the Good News that Christ died and rose again to rescue this world from sin and death. C. Simply taking the initiative to share Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and leaving the results to God. D. Another good definition of evangelism is: The total impact of the church upon the world (in its broader sense); in its narrower sense, it is the concentration of effort designed to bring about a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. ED (2013) Page 1

7 II. HOW DO WE EVANGELIZE? A. By proclaiming. B. By proclaiming. C. By taking the to share in the of the. III. WHY DO WE EVANGELIZE? A. It is a from Christ. B. It is the of the church. C. A for Christ. IV. WHO SHOULD EVANGELIZE? A. Every in Christ. V. WHERE SHOULD WE EVANGELIZE? A. Wherever are. B. Name several places as examples: ED (2013) Page 2

8 ED 101 CORRECT OF CONCEPTION OF EVANGELISM For the most part, the proper definition of a particular thing will provide the correct conception. There are some biblical principles concerning evangelism that must be understood intellectually before one can start to perform the task. I. The Correct Conception of Jesus Christ A. His mission was to and the. Luke 19:10 B. His mission on earth was more important than the of. 2 Corinthians 8:9 C. His mission on earth was more important than. John 10:11 D. His birth was to a. Matthew 1:18-25 E. He lived a, life. Hebrews 4:15, 2 Corinthians 5:21 F. His death was. Isaiah 53, Romans 4:25, 1 Peter 3:18 G. His is the crowning fact of salvation. Romans 4:25, 1 Corinthians 15:17 H. He is the of God, and He is. John 5:10-18 ED (2013) Page 1

9 II. THE CORRECT CONCEPTION OF SIN A. Sin is to God. Romans 5:19 B. Sin man from God. Isaiah 59:1-2 D. All have. Romans 3:23 E. Believers still have a. 1 John 1:8, Gal. 5:16-17 III. THE CORRECT CONCEPTION OF DEATH A. Death was brought into the by. Romans 5:12 B. There is death and death. John 11:25-26 C. There is also death. Colossians 2:13 D. There is also death. Luke 16 E. Death does not mean. Luke 16:23, Hebrews 9:27, 2 Cor 5:10 F. The in shall rise. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ED (2013) Page 2

10 IV. The Importance of One s Soul A. Christ died for the entire.1 John 2:2 B. Heaven when is saved. Luke 15:10, 7 C. One soul is more than the whole. Mark 8:36-37; Hebrews 13:17 V. The Importance of God s Word A. We must believe that the is. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 B. We must believe that God s Word is. 2 Peter 1:20-21 C. We must believe that God s Word is. D. We must believe that God s Word is the. VI. What Evangelism is Not A. It is not we do. B. It is not merely people to join our church. C. It is not merely people in a new. D. It is not syncretism or religion. VI. The Profile of an Evangelistic Church A. Truth must challenge. B. Right must challenge. C. Sanctimony must challenge. ED (2013) Page 3

11 ED 101 THE NECESSITY OF EVANGELISM In considering the necessity of evangelism, let us look at the aims of evangelism and its theological basis. We must not allow the word theology to throw us off. It simply means man s study of: 1) The Existence, 2) Nature, and 3)Laws of God. The First Aim of Evangelism: To confront the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To do this effectively, one must have an intellectual grasp of the Gospel. In other words we must have a working knowledge of the Gospel. The Second Aim of Evangelism: To secure a clear and definite decision to accept Jesus as Saviour and to enlist all converts as effective followers disciples of Christ. This aim is achieved only, through effective confrontation. To accomplish the goal of effective confrontation, theology is a necessity. The proper knowledge and understanding of theology contributes to effective evangelism in two ways: A. It helps keep evangelism simple B. It is an agent in conserving results C. It keeps you on track So, we can see that evangelism and theology are complementary of each other and therefore, depend upon each other. The very heart of the Gospel of the New Testament is theological. We must study to show ourselves approved unto God, workmen that need not be ashamed, dividing the true word of God correctly. (II Timothy 2:15) The great doctrines of God are what make up our theology. We must be found correct in such doctrines as the judgment, sin atonement, repentance, faith, justification, Jesus Christ, the resurrection and many others. ED (2013) Page 1

12 I. Sin and Salvation: SOME OF THE VITAL THEOLOGY OF EVANGELISM: A. Sin is that which man. Psalm 51:5 B. Sin placed man in a state. Ezekiel 18:20 C. Salvation is the initial experience of deliverance from the of. Romans 6:17, 18, 20, 21 D. Redemption comes from - never from. 1 Peter 2:17 E. Man s responsibility is to want. Acts 16:30-31 F. Man must accept salvation on terms, not on his own terms. Titus 3:5-6 G. Salvation is not a matter of and, and. It is a fellowship between a and a. H. Salvation is God s answer to the problem. Romans 6:23 II. Repentance and Faith A. Repentance is described as a of allegiance from sin to God. 1 Thessalonians 1:9 B. Faith is a of self to God. Benefits of Trusting God Proverbs 3 1. v.2-2. V v.8-4. vv. 9,10- ED (2013) Page 2

13 ED 101 MAINTAINING AN ATMOSPHERE OF EVANGELISM Just as Jesus had one main mission on this earth to seek and save the lost the church must also have one main mission, evangelism. The work of evangelism is primarily the task of the church. Unattached and unauthorized, evangelism is generally short lived and unwise. All the work of the Christian faith is centered in the local church. When any phase of the Christian work is ungoverned by the church, it may do little good and great harm. Evangelism is an imperative for the local church. The church which ceases to evangelize neglects one of its primary reasons for existing and begins the process of decline. I. The entire atmosphere of the church must be permeated with a. A. The sense of God s presence will provide an atmosphere where can be. B. The church must have a vision of her mission in the. (Matt 28:19,20) C. Because a great number of church members have never received Christ as Savior, they too must be. (Luke 15:8-9) D. It is believed that of our evangelistic opportunity in America is within the themselves. II. The strategy of evangelism employed by the local church will depend for its success on the true evangelistic spirit of the church through its members. A. If the proper atmosphere will be maintained in the church, it is absolutely essential that will prevail. How does this happen? Ephesians 4:11-14 B. The of the of cannot thrive in the midst of. (Acts 4:23-31; Romans 8:9) C. The members of the church must be to evangelism. D. It takes, hard work and frequent to maintain an atmosphere for evangelism. (Acts 2:41, 42) III. See Handout on the Holy Spirit. ED (2013) Page 1
