Biblical Evangelism and Discipleship

Course Description

This course is a tool to help the church fulfill its mission.

The course emphasizes the centrality of the local church, showing that the gospel is the mission of the church, and that the nature of the gospel should shape the church.

By explaining the basics of the gospel, it corrects some errors of modern methods that do not lead a sinner to genuine conversion and Christian living.

The student will be equipped to develop his ministry.

Most of the lessons of the course can be taught as complete topics for various kinds of groups. For example, a lesson can be used to teach a method for presenting the gospel.

The 12 Practical Christianity discipleship lessons included at the end of this book are for students to use with groups of new converts. A larger set of 26 lessons (including these 12) is available from Shepherd’s Global Classroom.
