Basic Application for Service in Christ
BASIC is a series of non-credit learning opportunities created by the Grace Center for Spiritual Development, an extension of Grace School of Theology, to prepare spiritual leaders worldwide in a variety of environments where fundamental and ongoing training is critical.
BASIC Evangelism includes 6 modules of teaching focused on preparing you to share the Gospel in a clear, concise, and correct manner.
And He gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
– Ephesians 4:11–13 (NASB)
Make yourself available to the Lord with whatever He gave you,
put Christ on display, and use your life to change someone else’s.
Have you ever felt unworthy and unprepared to share the Gospel to a friend or stranger? Do you struggle to find the right words or method to deliver the Good News to someone? Are you tempted to just leave all the ministry work to pastors and church leaders?
This passage in Ephesians shows us that God has given us our spiritual leaders for the purpose of equipping us to do the work of ministry. As believers, we are all called to present what God’s Word says about the Gospel and give others the opportunity to believe it.
6 Comprehensive Modules
Each module will guide you through crafting your personal testimony in a way that authentically represents biblical truth and emphasizes the life change others can also have in Christ.
Use the accompanying handout to practice putting your personal testimony into words that capture the important elements of the Gospel that others need to hear.
Are you ready to be used by God to change someone’s life today?
There are two things you cannot do in heaven except in this life. First, is to live by faith— because in paradise, we will be living by sight. The second is to share the Gospel—because there will no longer be any lost people around us. Make the most out of your life here on earth and accept every believer’s call to share the Gospel!
