How to Share Your Faith



Our team at Servant Life feels that it is not only for your benefit but also our responsibility to make sure that you have a clear understanding of the gospel and how to share it. After all, if we are going to make disciples, we need to be able to tell others what that means. We believe that your ability to articulate the gospel and share your testimony is not just something you should rehearse before a mission trip, but something you are prepared to do at all times as a Christ-follower.


Below is a guide to help you prepare how to share your testimony with the essential elements of the gospel. On a mission trip, you might not have extended time to lay out the full story of salvation with those you encounter. It is important that you are able to share the Gospel in both short and extended versions. We ask that you take the needed time to seriously work through the following questions. We know that it is the work of the Holy Spirit that brings about new life through Christ, but we have the responsibility to share God’s good news and make disciples (Mt 28:18-20, Acts 1:8-9 & Luke 24:44-49). Our hope is that this exercise will not only prepare you, but also remind you of the goodness of God’s grace through the work of Christ (Eph. 1:18-21 & 2:4-10). We look forward to hearing how God uses your testimony in the lives of others!


PART ONE: THE GOSPEL Use these five elements of God’s story to write the Gospel in your own words:
