Gospel Clarification 2017-03-07T18:10:59+00:00

Roger talks about the Gospel presentation in Blitz events.

This is how we present the Gospel. It is a simple explanation of what Jesus has done for us and an invitation to pray a prayer of faith. We understand that we conduct events under the authority of the host church. We believe it is vital to offer a simple step for people to place their faith in Jesus. However, the method is flexible. The host church has the option of conducting this portion of the event themselves. The director will discuss this with you prior to the event. Let him know what specific directions you have for him.

What We Don’t Do

  • We don’t usurp the authority of the church
  • We don’t use emotion
  • We don’t prolong the invitation
  • We don’t use the term “getting saved”

Talking Points

  • It’s not about what we do for God. It’s about what God did for us through Jesus.
  • What Jesus did for us is bigger than anything we have done wrong.
  • Father God loves us so much He sent Jesus to this earth to die for me. Jesus died on a cross. Shed His blood and was buried. Three days later Jesus came out of that tomb alive. 
  • Today Jesus is alive. He is the King. He is the Lord. He is the Savior.
  • What Jesus did for me is big enough, strong enough, powerful enough to crush, smash, flatten and wipe away any sin.
  • Jesus is my best friend. He will never leave me.

Invitation

This is not about playing a game on the stage or joining a church. This is about putting your faith in what Jesus did for you. If you want to be a part of this prayer to put your faith in Jesus, raise your hand when I count to three.

Confession of Faith

I believe that Jesus is the Son of God who came to this earth to die for me. I believe Jesus died on a cross, shed His blood for my sins. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and today He is alive. From this day on He is my Lord and my Savior. My faith is in Him.
