Do you feel like you don�t have the courage to share Christ?

 

 Maybe you are just having a hard time Communicating the Gospel because you feel that you dont know enough. You feel like you need to be an expert in apologetics before you can share your faith. Maybe you are afraid someone will ask you a question that you wont have the answer too! Maybe you are just fearful of how people will act or respond when you tell them about Christ. Maybe you have been a Christian for many years and have never shared your faith. Well this is the course for you!
 

The Good Messengers Ministries of Northwest Indiana  is proud to offer our Communicating the Gospel Basic Gospel Principles 101 Course. This course is Biblically based, and is specially formatted to train believers in a group setting to simply and confidently share the gospel with family, friends and strangers. This course is open to any believing Christian men, women, and teens.  Bring a spouse, family member or friend. Bring a spouse, family member or friend. We have included lessons on "What is and isn't Necessarily Evangelism", "What is the Gospel", "What is the Importance of Repentance & Faith", and so much more.

This eight lesson course will teach you to overcome you fears, and help you to share with others a gospel message that makes sense. You will not be at a loss for words. You do not need to be an expert in apologetics. We will show you the process of contextualizing the Biblical message of the missionary mandate originated, given and commanded by Jesus. What we teach is NOT some new found method but rather we show you how Jesus evangelized in the Bible and show you how to use those principles in your witnessing conversations. It's not about a "Presentation," its about a "Conversation." 

We will show some DVD's based off of "The Way of the Master" TV show series with Ray Comfort & Kirk Cameron that will show you through fascinating on-the-street- conversations how to witness. Weekly homework assignments will gradually coax, you, step-by-step, out of your comfort zone to reach your loved ones for Christ. You will be inspired and motivated as you learn, watch, and then do. Like countless others who have taken this course, you will be amazed at how using the Biblical Principles that Jesus gave us will transform your life  and the lives of others. More importantly it will help you Communicate the Gospel more effectively. Our instructors don't just teach it...they use these "Biblical Principles" themselves in witnessing conversations.  We at Good Messengers Ministries of Northwest Indiana dont believe in fancy, modern gospel presentations but rather we will show you how to engage a culture in a conversation "COMMUNICATING THE GOSPEL" of Jesus Christ! 


We Will Come and Teach This Course at Your Church, Bible Study Group, Small Groups, Workshops, Conference, or Seminar at NO CHARGE (Only course materials are required). Our Instructors Do Not Charge to Teach this Course but Rather Volunteer Their Time to the Glory of God. This course can be modified to fit your organizations needs. Please contact us for more details at 4hisservice@sbcglobal.net

"I just wanted to tell you a little bit about what the Way of the Masters course is doing for me.  We have only had two classes and I am already so excited I can barely stand it!!  I would like to tell you why I am so excited and this email might get quite lengthy so hopefully you have time. 

I grew up in a Christian home and had always believed that if you believe in Jesus and were sorry for your sins you would go to heaven, regardless of repenting or living for God.  People would be surprised by the life I have lead, because I just don't seem like "that kind of person".  While in high school and college I rebelled against everyone and everything.  I have done every drug a person can do, I have lied, stolen, ect...  I met a man and became pregnant within the first month of our relationship.  We got married and moved to his home state of Colorado.  When I had my son, it changed my life!  I loved this baby so much.  He was my life and even though my marriage was hard (we barely knew each other), we stuck it out.  I then became pregnant again and had another little boy.  I never thought that I could love another child so much!  But this love was unending.  I lived for my boys.  Everything I did, I did for them.  My second son, was a mother's dream!  He preferred me to any
one, he was funny, mischievous, wiggly, ect. (Not to say my first wasn't of course!)

One Sunday morning I woke up just like any other morning and since my littlest one hadn't woken up yet I took a shower and then went to check on him.  I walk into his room to find him face down in his crib, dead.

In that instant, my life spiraled down and crashed in a despair so deep, I never knew a person could survive such a thing.  As time went on, I got worse and worse.  I was drinking heavily, taking anti-depressants, sleeping pills, and anti anxiety pills by the truck load.  I tried to commit suicide several times.  The last time I tried, I decided that this was it.  I was going to do this once and for all.  When my husband found me I was already cold and unconscious.  I spend two days in intensive care, and when I was coherent, I found I could not see very well and I couldn't move my body.  I thought that God had paralyzed me for what I had done.  I did recover, very fast over the next week.  I had to have my mother come and take care of me because I was hallucinating so bad I couldn't think straight. (because of the amount of drugs I had taken)

After I recovered, I was terrified.  I knew that I had come very close to going to hell, I could feel it when I almost died.  I knew that God had saved me from death but I didn't know why.  So, I started reading my Bible and really repented of my sins and MY EYES WERE SUDDENLY OPEN to what salvation REALLY meant!  I saw the announcement for The way of the Master in the church bulletin and I knew I needed to take it.  I thought I was taking it, just to get more knowledge and grow in my Christianity.  But now I know this is why God has spared my life!

I am naturally very shy, but after reading about Moses, and Jeremiah I realized that it has nothing to do with me!  I am just a tool, for God.  He does it!  I am so humbled by this opportunity, and an almost embarrassed by my inadequacy for God. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!  For doing what God has called you to do!  Thank you for helping me to do that too! 

He is my focus, He is my salvation, He is the beginning and the end, His does all things for His Glory, He is faithful, just, loving, compassionate, THE LIST NEVER ENDS!!!

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for He alone is worthy! "

intimidating, and a group setting can 

provide the needed encouragement and 

accountability.


 

Apologetics, is about building a case for our Faith...learning how to explain and defend our Faith. Good Messengers Ministries offers three apologetic classes to help defend your faith.
1) English Bible History 101:  Learn how we received the Bible in the English language, and the price that was paid so we can read it today. Also helps us understand that we truly have the literal Word of God in our hands. This class is a Great defense for the Holy Bible.

2) Creation Science: This class is for us to better understand the Biblical view of creation vs. evolution. This class also helps explain where the dinosaurs went, why is the earth the way it is, and why science actually is interconnected with the Bible.

3) Bridges Muslims & Jews: Bridges is a course study that helps us better understand our Muslim and Jewish neighbors and how we can bridge a gap between our world to share Christ with them.

 

 

We Will Come and Teach Any of These Apologetic Courses at Your Church, Bible Study Group, Small Groups, Workshops, Conference, or Seminar at NO CHARGE (Only course materials are required). Our Instructors Do Not Charge to Teach this Course but Rather Volunteer Their Time to the Glory of God. This course can be modified to fit your organizations needs.
