“You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 1:8

“If we follow in Christ’s footsteps, we must come close to those who need our ministry. We must open the Bible to the understanding, present the claims of God’s law, read the promises to the hesitating, arouse the careless, strengthen the weak.”

Ellen White, Gospel Workers, p. 336.

A desire to share our newfound joy in Christ is the natural result of a conversation with God that leads to personal conviction and conversion. As the Holy Spirit brings renewal, He implants a passion for souls that compels us to personally share Christ with everyone we meet. We long to see others come to the Savior as we do.

Today, God is calling every church member to join in the work of saving souls for the Kingdom.

Personal witnessing is a vital part of continual renewal and growth.

To develop this discipline we:

  • Investigate the intersection between personal Bible study and witnessing for our faith.
  • Gain a Biblical understanding of what “being sent” means in today’s world.
  • Learn how to boldly and tactfully speak truth in challenging circumstances.
  • Discover how Jesus created conversations that led to conversions.

“We must pray earnestly and perseveringly for the endowment of the Holy Spirit, taking to the Lord our burden for souls ready to perish. All to whom the truth comes must in turn give to others the messages of warning and invitation, with earnest prayer that the Holy Spirit will accompany the word spoken.”

Ellen White, Letter 86, June 11, 1902, par. 10
