Welcome to the
3 Keys to Witnessing pages.
We pray that as you read through these pages you will find some information that
will help your personal ministry. We have also created a printable version so you
can make copies for friends or a evangelism training session.

The information has been broken up into three keys. These are
preparation, being a witness, and
start with preparation.
The Key of Preparation - This key has three parts to it and each
Prayer - You will never save a soul!
Only God can call someone to salvation. This is the work of the Holy
Spirit, but we need to pray for our part in the process. That would include:
someone to witness to, God's wisdom and words, and
the courage to talk to the
person. The importance of prayer in witnessing cannot be understated. If
you do not bring God into your witness, you will be wasting your time!
Fear of Man - When asked why most
Christians do not witness, they will tell you it is fear of rejection or looking
bad. Well first we suggest that if this is an issue with you then you need to get a
compassion for the lost. These poor souls are headed for eternal punishment.
The world tells us there is no Hell, or we are already in it. The Bible tells us
that when Jesus comes He will divide the sheep from the goats. The sheep that are
blessed by the Father and will go to the kingdom. The goats on the other hand, that
were not righteous and that we are so afraid to talk to, He will say "...Depart from Me,
you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:" (Matt.
25:41b) This is PUNISHMENT FOR EVER AND EVER! Hell is spoken about or referred to
about 400 times in the New Testament. God has made it clear.
If you think
that it is bold to walk up to someone and speak about the Gospel
then we strongly
suggest that you read Foxe's book of martyrs. You will never feel the same about
standing up for your faith in Jesus and His Gospel again.
Witness - Never forget that you do not
witness...you are a witness! You are called to be His light to this dark
world. So you will need to "Live the Life." The life you live
will show non-Christians how Jesus has
positively effected your life and they will want the same. On
the other hand if you do not live a Godly life it will show. For
example You will never get anywhere with a non-Christian friend that
knows you are cheating on your spouse.
Now let's go to
Being a Witness.
