Apart from the work of the Holy Spirit there would be no success in evangelism. The Spirit uses the word of God in answer to the prayers of the saints to bring about the salvation of souls.
Prayer is the foundation for true evangelism. This can be seen with Cornelius and Peter in Acts 10.
Acts 8 also gives us a marvelous example of personal evangelism. Evangelist Phillip is lead by the Spirit to the Ethiopian returning to Africa.
More than one example of public, or mass, evangelism are found in the Book of Acts, but none better than chapter eight. Deacon Phillip, later known as Phillip the Evangelist, preaches Christ in Samaria.
Men seem to be obsessed with methods when it comes to evangelism. God has already given us the divine program.
Can language be more clear? “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.”
Is salvation obtained by giving your life to Christ? Surely the Scriptures are clear that our salvation is a gift from God to us, not a gift from us to God!
Is public confession of Christ a condition for salvation? Misunderstanding of confession and Romans 10 leads to a false, human works view of salvation.
Is baptism important? Of course it is! Is baptism necessary for salvation? Of course it isn’t!
Is repentance needed for salvation? Of course! Repentance and faith are the two sides of the same coin.
