We believe sharing our faith is a vital part of our following Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). We believe the Good News of Jesus Christ is the power of God for salvation (Romans 1:16). However, we know that personal evangelism, everyday people sharing the eternal truths of the greatest story, is an intimidating challenge to most Christ-followers. This is not God's intention for his people and he makes sure we have everything we need to do what he asks of us (Acts 1:8). One effective tool God has given to believers for our day and time is The Story.
The Story gives us a beautiful, powerful, but simple explanation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Story uses four of the Bible's primary themes; Creation, the Fall, Rescue, and Restoration; to explain the Good News of Jesus Christ for sinners.
Creation - In the beginning God created everything to be perfect.
The Fall - Man rebelled against a loving God & believed Satan's lie.
The Rescue - Jesus, who is God, came to rescue people by His death & resurrection. By faith alone in Him, everyone can have their sins forgiven & enjoy eternal with him.
Restoration - Everything will be restored to the way that it was supposed to be & those who trust in Jesus will get to enjoy eternity in the new heaven & earth.
Man's response - Admitting your need to God, Asking Him to forgive you and help you turn from sin, Trusting in Jesus Christ alone to rescue you, and Following Jesus Christ in faith from this day forward.
