A Contagious Christian faith

Starting Sept. 12 we will be studying "Becoming a Contagious Christian," a lifestyle evangelism course published by Willow Creek and created by Bill Hybels. I realize that a lot people dislike some of Hybels methods and theology, but having taught it twice in the past I can honestly say this course is great. Christians should be witnesses of the Gospel everywhere they go. We have a responsibility to the people we live and work with to share the glorious good news of the Gospel with them. Contagious Christians teaches believers to use everyday opportunities to share Christ. The method is simple and true to God's Word. I hope that every member of Parkview Baptist Church will take the time to come on Wed. nights and sharpen their skills in evangelism. We may not agree with everything that Hybels does or teaches, but we do agree on the Gospel. That is one subject that we are all together on!

See you there.

A great book on the subject is "God is the Gospel" by John Piper. I have not been through Hybels material but I have taken the Faith program at my previous church which is very good. Many Christians, me included, just need to love the lost as much as Paul loved the Jews when he volunteered to go to hell for them. I pray that God will help me to love the lost like that.
