Evangelizing your children

Sharing the Gospel with your children is a privilege not to be taken lightly. As a follow-up to my post on Childhood Conversions last week let me point you to a two part series I greatly appreciate on evangelizing children from Shepherds Fellowship.

Here’s a brief overview:

Common Pitfalls in Evangelizing Children

  1. Oversimplifying the Gospel of Christ
  2. Coercing a Profession of Faith
  3. Assuming the Reality of Regeneration
  4. Assuring the Child of Salvation
  5. Rushing the Ordinance of Baptism

Foundational Keys to Evangelizing Children

  1. Setting a Consistent Example of Godliness
  2. Proclaiming the Complete Gospel of Christ
  3. Understanding the Biblical Evidences of Salvation
  4. Encouraging Possible Signs of Conversion
