Soul Winning Training

Welcome to The Soul Winning Training organized by Kukua Dorcas founder of "Jesus Girl Movement". This is a short course to guide and help you become a witness and a soul winner for Christ Jesus. 

Soul winning is the greatest job on earth. "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" (Mk 8:36). The secret of successful soul winning of the early Christians was their total dependence on the power of the Holy Spirit. They boldly proclaimed before their opposer, "We are His witnesses, and so also is the Holy Spirit" (Acts 5:32). In true evangelism, both the Spirit and the soul winner call sinners to "come!" (Rev 22:17). Boldness to witness is the immediate outcome of the filling of the Spirit (Acts 4:31). Soul winning is not a spare-time activity. We must have a spirit of evangelism, not just a spurt of evangelism! This short course will equip you and guide you to effective evangelism.

Christ Bless You.

Personal Soul Winning

Challenge For Soul Winning:

Personal Soul Winning 

This is the art of proclaimimg the good news of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to open the spiritual eyes of those who are lost, and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Christ- Acts 26:18. This is the duty and responsibility of all true believers. The power to be witnesses is to preach boldly and proclaim the Good News understanding that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation. We are carriers and we are announcers of this Good News Gospel realizing that the goodness of God leads us to repentance.Our job is not to convict. Our job is to proclaim; the Word of God convicts. If we attempt to do the work of the Holy Spirit, we will condemn. The love of God flowing from the lips of a Spirit-filled believer will allow the Word of God to do what it does. Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” He also said that no man can come to me except the Spirit draw him – and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. He stands with arms wide open. He says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” The Gospel is Good News and must be carried by people who are full of Jesus and the joy of their salvation. People can see if you are real or fake. They can see if you know Jesus personally or have just heard about Him.We will use every method and every means to save souls from an eternity in Hell. Hear the cry of the lost as they wander around in darkness. You are the one who will throw out the lifeline. You are the one carrying the light. Your light is shining so that those who are in darkness can find their way.

 Thank you for joining us on our global quest for souls. Every tribe and tongue will hear this Good News. Whole cities and towns and villages will be shaken by the power of God. Nations will be awakened and we will see the greatest harvest of souls and then King Jesus will return. 

The Great Value Of The Soul

The Lord intended that everyone who hears the gospel should ensure that someone else hears the same gospel. "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matthew 16:26.   In this verse of the scripture quoted above, Jesus stated that one single soul is worth more than the whole world. In money, one soul is of more value than the wealth of the whole world. What value do you put on souls? One soul is worth more than all the money in the whole world. One soul is worth than all possessions in this world. 


Challenge For Soul Winning

  1. The heartbeat of God- Isaiah 6:8; 16:8-11; Luke 15:1-32. The heart of God yearns over His earthly children with a love stronger than death. He sent His only son to die for us. In giving up His son, He has poured out to us all heaven in one gift. Let us try to appreciate the labor and energy that Heaven is expending to reclaim the LOST, and bring them back to the Father's house. Out of everything we do the eternal destination of a person is the most important. God’s heart is to see everyone spend eternity with Him instead of separated from Him. No matter whether a person chooses your church as their church home we must do our part to give people an opportunity to be saved by preaching the Good News of salvation. To do this, we have to go out there and win souls for Christ. 
  2. The worth of a soul - Mark 8:35-38. A soul will never die. When this earth has crumbled to dust and has passed away into the forgotten past, a man's soul will still be in it's freshness of youth. When million, million eternities have each lived out their endless ages and have rolled by into the unthinkable past and time is no more, the soul will be living. A soul never die. Satan hates the soul and can do anything to ruin and destroy man's soul. God loves the soul and has done everything to save man's soul. What are you willing to give? Are you willing to help save the soul? 
  3. The Fact Of Hell - Revelation 20:11-15. Hell is real. Soul winning is a work of eternal value. How many people are dying without Christ? Why are multitudes consumed with FIRE on the other side of death? How many have died without the TRUTH of what Christ has done? Wake Up! That's the challenge! So much depends on you.
  4. The Suffering of Christ on the Cross for each sinner - Isaiah 53. Jesus suffered for the whole world. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. He gave Him not only to live among men, to bear their sins and die for them. He gave Him to the fallen race. The price paid for our redemption, the infinite sacrifice of our heavenly Father in giving His Son to die for us, should give us exalted ideas of what we may become through Christ. 
  5. Personal Rewards For Faithful Soul Winners - Daniel 12:3. There's a great reward for all soul winners. A faithful soul winner will be richly rewarded here on earth and eternally. Soul winning is the greatest work you can ever be involved in. It is the most rewarding enterprise you can undertake. The Soul Winner’s Crown will be your eternal treasure that you can cast at Jesus’ feet.
  6. Fullness of Joy To The Soul Winner - Psalms 126:6. There's great joy in soul winning. It is the greatest work on earth. It is  a work that gives great joy in this life and brings reward in the world to come. 

Hindrance To Personal Soul Winning and Solutions

Hindrance / Solutions

"Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. • John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him,Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 

"Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”   Soul Winning is not a program but a PASSION. • Soul Winning is not an event but a LIFESTYLE. • Souls are the currency of ETERNITY. These are some of the obstacles that prevent a lot of believers to share Christ to the lost. Let's get rid of these impediment. To benefit maximally from this studies, it is important that you read the Bible verses and rely on the Holy spirit for divine illumination.

The gospel, according to Isaiah, is, "Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live." It is ours, then, to give men something worth their hearing; in fact, to instruct them. We are sent to evangelize, or to preach the gospel to every creature; and that is not done unless we teach them the great truths of revelation. The gospel is good news. To listen to some preachers, you would imagine that the gospel was a pinch of sacred snuff to make them wake up, or a bottle of ardent spirits to excite their brains. It is nothing of the kind; it is news, there is information in it, there is instruction in it concerning matters which men need to know, and statements in it calculated to bless those who hear it. It is not a magical incantation, or a charm, whose force consists in a collection of sounds; it is a revelation of facts and truths which require knowledge and belief. The gospel is a reasonable system, and it appeals to men's understanding; it is a matter for thought and consideration, and it appeals to the conscience and the reflecting powers. Hence, if we do not teach men something, we may shout, "Believe! Believe! Believe!" but what are they to believe? Each exhortation requires a corresponding instruction, or it will mean nothing." - Charles H. Spurgeon.

General Rules For Effective Soul-Winning

Rules For Effective Soul Winning

One of the greatest joys that we can have as Christians is the joy of leading someone to Christ. Think of it! You and I can be God's instruments in the salvation of others.

God values the souls of men so highly that He sent His Son to die on the cross that men might be saved. When we see how precious all men are to God, we will do all we can to win them to Christ.

In this lesson we are going to learn how to lead others to Christ and the rules governing soul winning. 

  • Pray for opportunities to win souls.
  • Seek for opportunities to win souls, and use them. 
  • Learn to ask leading questions. Use tracts, testimonies, books, letters or tapes approved by your spiritual leader. 
  • Present Christ from the scriptures. 
  • Lead directly to a definite acceptance of Christ. 
  • Deal with people of your own sex and age group, However, if the Holy spirit prompts you to speak to anyone you to speak to anyone, don't hesitate. Proceed at once. 
  • Don't be too talkative or overbearing. Let them speak too. Don't argue.
  • Always keep secrets.
  • Don't become impatient. 
  • Deal with sinners as if you were a fellow sinner not a superior being. 
  • When the person is ready to make decision, get him to kneel if possible. Pray with him and for him AUDIBLY. 
  • After prayer, give him some verses of the Bible for assurance of salvation. 
  • Encourage him to attend a living church. 

Some Do's and Don'ts

DO 

always use your Bible when leading people to Christ. Even though you may be able to quote the verse, it is better to let the other person read it himself.

DON'T 

use too many verses.

DO 

look to God in prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

DON'T  

interrupt people. Try to find out their problem, but don't get side-tracked. Keep bringing them back to the matter of their relationship to the Lord Jesus.

DO 

be earnest. This is no time for joking. Soul-winning is serious business.

DO 

be earnest. This is no time for joking. Soul-winning is serious business.

DON'T 

argue. God does not send us out to win arguments; He sends us out to win souls.

DO

 be careful of your breath. Don't offend people needlessly.

DO 

admit it when you don't know the answer to a question. Just say, "I don't know the answer to that question, but I am sure there must be one. One thing I do know—Jesus Christ changed my life, and He will do the same for you."

DO 

value every person highly. We must see every person as one for whom Christ died. If we look down on, or despise any person, we are not worthy to be Christ's servants.

DON'T 

be discouraged. Some will reject the Savior, but keep right on witnessing for Christ.

DO 

be concerned. Jesus wept and prayed over lost souls, and so should we.

DO 

encourage new converts to confess Christ to others and to join a Bible-believing church at the first opportunity.

Be not a solo player. C. H.Spurgeon (1834-1892) was right when he said, "Christian laborers disconnected from the Church are like sowing and reaping without having any barnin which to store the fruits of the harvest; they are useful but incomplete."
