Tools to Share Your Faith
Talking about your faith helps others learn more about God and the teachings in the Bible. But sometimes it's hard to get started. How do you explain your faith to a non-believer or even one who has their own religious beliefs already?
According to Barna, a market research firm specializing in studying religious beliefs and behavior, 35% of all U.S. adults say they made a "big change" in their lives because of a conversation about faith. But 28% say religious discussions create tension or arguments, which is why most people tend to avoid them. Sound familiar? But if you could help bring positive change to someone’s life wouldn’t you want to?
Sharing your faith with others
In this digital age, you don’t have to meet people face-to-face for the opportunity to talk about your faith or start a faith conversation. The content on incmedia.org, the Christian media website of the Church Of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo), helps you find ways to insert your faith in day-to-day conversations, even if they are online. Here’s a downloadable guide to how to use tools from incmedia.org
You can print this out and put it on your refrigerator. Or you can share it with other individuals who are also looking for ways to talk about their faith. Or you can do what this congregation in California did and put it up on a bulletin board for everyone to see.
