Before You Share Your Faith: Five Ways to be Evangelism Ready

Before You Share Your Faith: Five Ways to Be Evangelism Ready by pastor Matt Smethurst offers five foundational recommendations to help you talk to others about Jesus with confidence. Packed with theological and pastoral wisdom, this book will help you consider what barriers might make it harder for someone to have a direct encounter with Christ. It also digs into hurdles you may need to overcome when explaining the Gospel, like the fear of rejection or of the feeling of being ill-equipped. This easy-to-reference little handbook can be read in an hour or so, and is designed for easy browsing, so you can revisit the concepts before each Gospel conversation. If you find the work of evangelism intimidating, this instructive little book offers a helpful boost of confidence.

About Truth For Life

At Truth For Life, we believe and teach the Gospel: that God created men and women in His image to live in relationship with Him. Yet all people have rebelled against God and rejected that relationship. But God, in His mercy, sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross to bear the consequences of our sins and to restore us to a right relationship with God. We desire that unbelieving men and women would hear and believe this message. If you would like to learn more about this message, read how to become a follower of Christ.

The Bible teaches that the Christian life is one of ongoing growth as we become more like Christ. It is our desire that the preaching on Truth For Life would assist believers in their understanding of Scripture and the responsibilities of Christian living.

The local church is a primary means through which discipleship occurs in a Christian's life. The sermons and materials we offer are meant to supplement, not substitute, the regular preaching of the Word that exists in the local church. We encourage listeners to be active members in their local church and to commit financially in support of them before considering giving to our ministry.
