ONE VERSE EVANGELISM STRATEGY
Introduction Hello, my name is ______ with Calvary Baptist and we are taking a brief survey to get to know our neighbors. We only have 3 questions; may I ask you the first one? • Do you attend church and how often? • What do you believe happens when a person dies? • What do you believe it takes for a person to get to Heaven? (Repeat their answer so they know that you have listened and understood)
Gospel (Hand card to person) I believe this verse from God’s Word helps us understand what it takes to get to Heaven. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Explain in your own words the following terms: • Wages – earned • Sin – disobedience/breaking God’s Law • Death -separation from God • Gift – free/purchased by someone • God – the One who purchased the gift • Eternal life – opposite of separation from God • Christ Jesus – who He is, what He has done, what He will do • Lord – master/trust
Does this make sense to you? (allow answer and review if needed)
INVITE TO RECEIVE JESUS Would you like to receive God’s gift today and know for sure that you will go to Heaven?
On the other side of the card are two more verses from God’s Word. 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. Romans 10:9-10
Today, would you be willing to confess “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead?
Invite the person to pray in their own words.
According to God’s Word, you are now saved and you will go to Heaven. We would like to give you this brochure to help you learn more about the decision you have made today and some next steps for you to take. (Give “Spiritual Commitment Guide” booklet)
INVITE TO CALVARY (Give packet of materials) Here is some information about our church and we would like to invite you to visit us Sunday.
Pray – thank God for loving us enough to send Jesus to die for us. Thank God for _____ decision to be saved today and help him/her to know you more and more.
