“Methods of Evangelism”
Part ONE-Evangelistic Method #1- The intellectual method I chose was Four Spiritual Laws. I found a pamphlet by Bill Bright, which stated in plain English the four laws, God loves you, Man is sinful, and Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for man’s sin. And, we must individually receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This method would be great to use in any setting, weather believer or non-believer. It further shows how much God loves us, by sending His only son.

One group can go into the streets, while another stays at the church or another location and help the people sent in by the ones on the street. The greatest servant evangelist was Jesus, he helped wherever he went, he did all he could for all. He washed feet. (John 13:1-7) Servant evangelism reaches people for Christ by actively demonstrating God’s...
