This gospel presentation begins with creation, followed by the fall of man, God's promise to send a redeemer, the death and resurrection of Jesus, and an opportunity to be reconciled to the Father. Essentially, it is a gospel tract containing eight important points a person should understand to make an informed decision to follow Christ.
In ten sessions new believers are guided through an understanding of basic truths concerning their own relationship with God. In addition, each session includes training designed to help new believers win their friends and family to Jesus. They also learn how to form a small group that can become the beginning of a house church or function as an integral part of a larger congregation.
