Life on Mission Community Group Study
"Most of us who know and follow Jesus want to tell others about him, to share our faith. We want to live life on mission, obeying Jesus final command to us: Go into all the world and make disciples. But when it comes to actually engaging in evangelism, we hesitate. We get intimidated, uncertain, or even confused. Sharing our faith should be natural, easy but it isn't always. Until now.
Life on Mission offers clear Bible teaching designed to empower you to share your faith with people right in your own neighborhood. Pastor Tim Harlow walks you through topics like how to connect with unbelievers, how serving others can open their hearts to the gospel, and how paying attention to your own spiritual growth can strengthen your witness.
People who really matter to God are all around you, and God has given you the incredible assignment of inviting them to come home. Life on Mission will inspire and equip you to do that. The chapters in this book provide us with do-able steps and strategies to CONNECT, SERVE, SHARE, GROW, and PRAY. Imagine what our communities would be like, and how many of God’s prodigals and lost sheep would come home, if we all committed to living this way! Welcome to your LIFE ON MISSION!"
Sharing our faith should be natural, easy but it isn't always. Until now.
