The purpose of this Webpage is to help Christians in the quest of winning souls (Proverbs ). It is not intended as a “cure all.” We simply hope to provide some ideas and suggestions that will help individuals to fulfill the “Great Commission” (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:44-47). We hope those who use this webpage will find something to help them to reach a lost soul with the saving message of Christ.
Christianity is a taught religion. No one comes to Christ by accident Jesus said, “No one can come to Me
unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last
day. It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.'
Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John -45).
Only those who learn of Christ can come to Christ! It is only through the
gospel that the Father exercises His power to draw lost souls unto Himself.
Paul affirmed that all are called to God through the gospel which he preached
(2 Thess. ).
Indeed, the gospel is "the power of God unto salvation..." (
Keep in mind that Jesus often taught one on one. Nicodemus and the Samaritan woman are two
classic examples of the Lord’s personal teaching (John 3,4). Philip, while highly successful in public
In order to be an effective soul-winner, one must have a passion for the lost. Jesus taught that one soul is of greater value than the whole world (Matthew ; Mark ). Most failures in life can be traced to a wrong attitude. On the other hand, one can succeed at almost anything if the right attitude is present. In trying to reach the lost, remember that the one we are trying to reach is a precious soul…an individual with all the feelings, propensities, and prejudices of other human beings. As Jesus sent out the twelve apostles on the limited commission, he said, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16).
May we therefore assume that the one we are attempting to lead to Christ is honest and sincere. He may have already formed some beliefs, whether right or wrong, which he holds dear. He has as much right to try to persuade you to change as you do to persuade him. However, let us keep in mind that we are not representing some mundane product such as detergent or corn flakes. We are not trying to get people to exchange one brand of religion for another. We are simply teaching what the Bible teaches. May we do this without giving the impression that we think others are stupid or insincere. Only by gaining their friendship and regard can we ever hope to gain a listening ear.
