In episode 6 of Engage Your World, we discuss the question, "What is the Gospel Message?" In the previous episode, we focused on the context of the Gospel and asking "Why do we need the Gospel?" Unfortunately, we often over-complicate the simple Gospel and add a lot of terminology that can leave our hearer confused. The Engage 360 team believes that the first step to successfully sharing your faith is to clear away the clutter. We must know how to give the simple Gospel message. Once we are clear on the simple Gospel, we can learn how to better present it to different people and in different contexts. What is interesting, is that the core Gospel message involves layers of evidence. The death and resurrection of the Christ was prophesied in Old Testament scripture. The burial is evidence Jesus truly died. The appearances are proof that Jesus rose from the dead. Our faith is not based on wishful thinking, it is based on a series of very public events. A great Bible passage that summarizes what is the Gospel message can be found in 1 Corinthians 15.

What is the Gospel Message?

In episode 6 of Engage Your World, we discuss the question, “What is the Gospel Message?” In the previous episode, we focused on the context of the Gospel and asking “Why do we need the Gospel?”

Unfortunately, we often over-complicate the simple Gospel and add a lot of terminology that can leave our hearer confused. The Engage 360 team believes that the first step to successfully sharing your faith is to clear away the clutter. We must know how to give the simple Gospel message. Once we are clear on the simple Gospel, we can learn how to better present it to different people and in different contexts.

What is interesting, is that the core Gospel message involves layers of evidence.

  1. The death and resurrection of the Christ was prophesied in Old Testament scripture.
  2. The burial is evidence Jesus truly died.
  3. The appearances are proof that Jesus rose from the dead.

Our faith is not based on wishful thinking, it is based on a series of very public events.

Why do we need the gospel? https://www.e360m.org/why-do-we-need-the-gospel/ Wed, 07 Aug 2019 04:50:16 +0000 https://www.e360m.org/?p=2504 Why do we need the Gospel? Before a person can understand the good news, they have to first understand the bad news. This includes an answer to the question, "Why do we need the Gospel?" This question is the focus of episode 5 of the Engage Your World Evangelism Podcast. Greg, Jordan, and Matt will discuss the context of the Gospel. Understanding this context is a key element to effectively sharing your faith. Not only do we need to understand the context, we need to effectively communicate that context to others. Imagine talking to someone who only speaks English. You give a masterful evangelistic presentation in fluent Italian and wait in anticipation. However, only silence follows. There is no response from your hearer because they do not understand the words that you used. In the same way, using English words such as sin, the fall, repent, justification, propitiation, and more can lead to confusion if not explained properly. We need to do more than use church language. We need to ensure that our hearer actually understands the words we are using. If we do that, they will be much more likely to understand the truth of the message. In this episode we will give some helpful tips of what to avoid and what to focus on when setting up the context of the Gospel. The Gospel in a nutshell https://www.e360m.org/what-is-the-gospel-in-a-nutshell/ The meaning of repentance https://www.e360m.org/definition-of-repentance-in-the-bible-true-meaning/ The Need for the Gospel today https://www.e360m.org/the-need-for-the-gospel-in-todays-world/

What Does a Biblical Evangelist Do? https://www.e360m.org/what-does-a-biblical-evangelist-do/ Wed, 31 Jul 2019 20:48:56 +0000 https://www.e360m.org/?p=2436 In today's episode Jordan, Greg, and Matt discuss the question, "What does the biblical evangelist do?" Further, what is their role in the church? There are a lot of ideas that jump out when we say, "evangelist". Some may think of tent revivals, Billy Graham, televangelists, or a street preacher on the corner. But the real question is, "Would any of those ideas be in line with a biblical evangelist?"

An Evangelism Training Success Story https://www.e360m.org/evangelism-training-success-story/ Tue, 16 Jul 2019 15:58:37 +0000 https://www.e360m.org/?p=2273 In this episode we share an E360 evangelism training success story. We are joined by Sarah Nicholson who attended our Engage 360 evangelism training in Central Maine. Sarah ended up sharing her entire testimony, which sets the stage for why the impact of the training was so significant and makes her an evangelism training success story. As you'll hear, Sarah was raised in the church. She walked away from her faith during college, leading to a frightening incident with a psychic. She then came back to Christianity, but there were some bumps in the road. In the end, Sarah came away with a passion for understanding the Bible but needed help to share her faith. Sarah also shares the immense need for the broader church to rally and support the local in church in Maine. You can be a part of that impact by applying to join us for an evangelism outreach event  at the University of Maine https://www.e360m.org/orono/. This event will take place September 10-12.
