Many people get nervous at the prospect of evangelism. Often, they are afraid, or think that one needs to be a Bible expert to truly evangelize. Or that one needs to know the four spiritual laws. But evangelism, and training for evangelism, can be easy.
As easy as ABC, according to Stan Toler, pastor, teacher, and evangelist. Based on a simple plan, ABCs of Evangelism offers practical advice on how to evangelize people. In five steps, Toler shows you how you can effectively reach out and share the gospel. Step one, pray for God's presence in your presentation. Step two, present the ABC plan. Step three, lead the person in a sinner's prayer. Step four, assure the convert of their salvation. Step five, follow up with the new convert.
So what is the ABC plan? A, Admit that you are a sinner, based on Romans 3:23 (For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God). B, Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, based on John 1:12 (Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God). C, Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life, based on Romans 10:9-10 (That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved).
ABCs of Evangelism will help your church learn: the ABC plan, how to refute common objections from the unsaved, soul-winning verses, how to use networking and church events for evangelization, how to share faith in a small group, or with children, or during visitations, and how to have effective altar counseling for altar calls. Plus, there are recordings of messages from Stan Toler and John Maxwell. So let this simple, and short book inspire you to get out and share the good news.
