Bible Studies on Evangelism
As followers of Christ, we have a mandate to share God’s love with others in ways that can impact their lives and redirect their eternities. But few of us are naturally comfortable doing this. We wrestle with internal fears, a lack of preparation, and the sense that reaching out to others might force us to act like someone we’re not. We need to be equipped to talk to people about Jesus in ways that fit our God-given personalities, and we would benefit greatly from an infusion of fresh inspiration and practical ideas.
In this Contagious Faith video training course, bestselling author and teacher Mark Mittelberg, the primary author of the celebrated Becoming a Contagious Christian course, introduces you to the five Contagious Faith Styles—Friendship-Building, Selfless-Serving, Story-Sharing, Reason-Giving, and Truth-Telling—and helps you discover which of these approaches (or combination of them) will enable you to naturally share your faith in Jesus with the people around you. He also explains in a down-to-earth fashion several key skills that will help you communicate your faith in infectious ways, illustrating his message with real-life accounts of ordinary believers who applied these principles for extraordinary impact.
Contagious Faith will help you share the good news of Jesus effectively—even in our increasingly resistant culture.
Displaying God's love in today's world
When it comes to talking about Jesus with our family members, friends, classmates, and coworkers, many of us aren't sure how to go about doing it. We don't want to come off as awkward, pushy, or weird. We wonder if we have the right answers or if we'll say the wrong thing. As a result, we sometimes give up on sharing about Jesus altogether.
In this five-session study, bestselling author and spoken-word artist Hosanna Wong crushes the lies that hold us back from sharing the most important story in the world. Join Hosanna in discovering what God's Word actually says about revealing His love to the people right next us, and how we are already equipped to reach those who don't know how much God loves them (yet).
With honesty and humor, Hosanna will help you:
- Embrace your unique story to naturally talk about Jesus without being weird or pushy.
- Discover the three most effective steps to take when fighting for a loved one who is in a tough place.
- Overcome the lies that hold you back so you can step into your calling and empower people to encounter God.
- Heal from past hurts in the church and learn how to create the community you've longed for.
Does evidence for an afterlife actually exist?
Each of us wants to know what awaits on the other side of death. Is there any convincing proof that we will live on in eternity? If so, what will our experience be like? In this five-session video-based study, bestselling author Lee Strobel investigates the evidence for the existence of heaven and hell.
Strobel offers compelling answers for questions such as:
- How can we know there is an afterlife
- What will heaven be like?
- Does God really send people to hell?
- Will we have the same personality after we die?
- What does it mean to live with an eye on eternity?
Along the way, you will encounter explorations of such topics as angels, Satan, demons, and the exclusivity claims of Christ. In addition, you’ll receive a unique perspective from Lee based on his own experience of nearly dying several years ago. Follow Strobel on this journey of discovery of the entirely credible, believable, and exhilarating life to come.
Do you ever feel that you need to be qualified to talk about your faith? Or that God only uses “special” people who can preach and lead ministries? Or that even if you did step up and do something bold for God . . . that it wouldn’t really matter much in the end?
When you the look at the stories of the men and women in the early church, most were not people we would consider “qualified” for the tasks that God set before them. Many were not trained in religious matters or even educated. Few of them had the skills to persuade people through eloquent speech.
Certainly, none of them considered they were accomplishing extraordinary things for God that extend to today. But all had one thing in common. They stepped out in faith and took action when they felt the leading of the Holy Spirit.
In this video Bible study, bestselling author and pastor Jim Cymbala draws on examples of these ordinary people—men and women such as Ananias, Philip, and the 120 who waited in the Upper Room—along with modern-day testimonies to show how God can use anyone and everyone who follows his guidance. As you go through this study, you will learn how to obey the Spirit’s directions and extend the kingdom through sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
