ACTS 17

Sermon (PowerPoint optional)

A model for present-day missionary work. We will look at Paul’s model of outreach in Acts chapter 17 and see if we can make some applications on how to do outreach in today’s culture.

APOLOGETICS AND OUTREACH

Sermon (PowerPoint optional) or Afternoon Seminar:

Approximately ninety-five percent of all professing Christians have never attempted to share their faith. Out of the 5% that do, only 2% do so on a regular basis. Jesus said in John 14:15 "if you love me, you will keep my commandments." The Great Commission in Mark 16:15 tells us to "go into the world to preach the gospel to every creature." This message will help equip us to be motivated to share the Gospel as well as strengthen confidence in our own faith.

IS JESUS THE ONLY WAY OF SALVATION?

Sermon or PowerPoint

Pluralism is the belief that every religion is true. Each provides a genuine encounter with the Ultimate, and while others may be better than others, all are adequate. How can Biblical Christians make an exclusive truth claim that Jesus is the only way of salvation for mankind?

GOD AND THE UNIVERSITY

Three out of four Christian teens walk away from the church after they leave home. Why is this happening? What can be done about it? I will share some testimonies of my evangelism and outreach efforts on the Ohio State campus, which is now the largest campus in the United States. We will discuss some ways that parents and pastors can equip themselves to handle this problem.

THE JEWISH BACKGROUND OF THE DISCIPLES PRAYER (Matt. 6: 9-13)

In this message, we will look at the Jewish background of the prayer that Jesus taught his followers and how we can make some applications into our own lives.
