The command of Jesus for his followers was to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” This 9-Session Study will look to expose some of the fears and misconceptions associated with evangelism and provide a biblical basis for how Christ-followers can connect the gospel with those in our own path of life.
