Exploring the First Century Church: Mission (Part 1)

Jesus began his ministry with his baptism by John and calling disciples. Jesus ended his ministry telling those disciples to make more disciples by teaching and baptizing others. Jesus’ ministry didn’t just start and stop his ministry with mission. Jesus was constantly on mission and he wanted his disciples to do the same things theyContinue Reading

Peter is often given credit as the first to reach out to the Gentiles but that is not the case. You might find this interesting: Jesus’ outreach to Gentiles The Syrophoenician woman in Tyre (Mark 7:24-30) The deaf and mute man in Sidon (Mark 7:31-37) Feeding the 4000 (Mark 8:1-13) The formerly-demon-possessed man (Mark 5:1-20) AfterContinue Reading

The Problem With Our Evangelism Is That It Worked

And it worked because it was really all about us… Advertisers want to convince you that you can’t survive another minute unless you have what they want to sell you. They lead you to believe it is about you…your image, your body, your happiness when it is really about them…their money, their shareholders, their reputationContinue Reading

Praying for the Lost is the Gateway to Evangelism

Not everyone is comfortable having a Bible study with a non-Christian. Everyone is able to pray for lost people.

A Minister’s Take On Church Steps Outreach (Part 1) by Jimmy Hinton

I minister at the Somerset Church of Christ in Somerset, PA.  The question was brought to me around Thanksgiving 2012—“Could you teach a class on evangelism?”  This was a great topic to teach because in 2012 I preached the entire year on the Great Commission.  Yet, despite the polite pats on my shoulder week afterContinue Reading

No Greater Joy: Paula Harrington

I was born and raised in the church. As a preacher’s kid, grandkid, niece, and sister I knew all about the Christ of the Bible but for years I was detached from the love, grace, and salvation that infuses and maintains his beautiful story. When I finally got serious about God, I resorted to whatContinue Reading
