Evangelism Explosion Outline

Explosion International

Gospel Outline


  • Their
    Secular Life

  • Their
    Church Background

  • Our

  • Testimony
    (Church and Personal)

  • Transition:
    May I ask you a question?

Two Diagnostic Questions

  • #1
    - Have you come to the place in your spiritual life where you know
    for certain that if you were to die today you would go to heaven, or
    is that something you would say you’re still working on?

    • John

  • May
    I share with you how I came to know for certain that I have eternal
    life and how you can know also?

  • Before
    I share with you, let me ask you another question

  • #2
    - Suppose you were to die today and stand before God and He were to
    say to you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” What
    mould you say?

  • Repeat
    and confirm answer

  • Transition:
    When you answered that first question thought I had some really good
    news for you. But after hearing your answer to this second question,
    I know that I have the greatest news you have ever heard.



  • Heaven
    is a free gift

    • Romans

  • It
    is not earned or deserved

    • Ephesians

    • Friend’s

  • Transition:
    This can be seen more clearly when we understand what the Bible says
    about man.


  • Man
    is a sinner

    • Romans

    • Sin

    • Three
      Sins a Day

  • Cannot
    save himself

    • Matthew

    • Omelet
      with Bad Egg

  • Do
    you see why it is impossible for anyone to get into heaven by their
    good works?

  • Transition:
    This comes into sharper focus when we look at what the Bible says
    about God.

  • GOD

  • God
    is merciful
    - therefore does not want to punish us.

    • John4:8b

  • God
    is just
    - therefore must punish sin

    • Exodus 34:7b

  • Transition:
    God solved this problem in the Person of Jesus


  • Who
    He is
    - the infinite God-Man

    • Johnl:1,14

  • What
    He did
    - He died on the cross and rose from the deed to pay the
    penalty for our sins and to purchase a place in heaven for us

    • Record
      Book of Sin

    • Isaiah

  • Transition:
    This gift is received by faith.


  • Key
    to Heaven

  • What
    it is not

    • Mere
      Head Knowledge

    • James

    • Mere
      Temporal Faith

  • What
    it is
    - Trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life

    • Acts

    • The

    • Beggars
      Hand and Gratitude



  • Does
    this make sense to you?


  • Would
    you like to receive the gift of eternal life?


  • Let
    me clarify what this involves:

  • Transfer

  • Receive
    the resurrected and living Christ as Savior

    • Revelation

  • Receive
    Christ as Lord

  • Repent


  • If
    this is what you really want, I can lead us in prayer and we can
    tell God what you just now told me.

  • Pray
    for them - that God would give them faith and repentance

  • Pray
    with them - in short phrases of the GOSPEL OUTLINE allowing them to
    repeat after you

  • Pray
    for them - that the Holy Spirit will grant them assurance

  • I
    would like you to read something Jesus says about what you have just

This EE outline is very useful in sharing the gospel on a one-on-one basis systematically. It is designed in such a way that the key point and key verses on salvation is incorporated into a very interesting conversation. the only one thing that is very cricila to the success of evangelism is prayer. Through prayer, the Holy Spirit is able to work into the hearts of the unbeliever

Sounds like a cult to me. Eternal life is a nice fairy tale for people who are afraid of death. The only Sin is not living life the best possible way you know how and make sure you pack in all you wish to achieve before our time is gone. No amount of prayer will prepare you for death and when you are passed on your energy will only be transfered to the immediate environment you died in where it can utilised again. No hell, no heaven. These only exist on earth and they are man made.

Actually, Eternal Life is for people who are no longer afraid of death. They have looked at the world around them and recognized it is too big and complex for it to be an accident. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that a system left to itself will fall apart (not become more complex by itself). (Look at your own car--if you don't add gas, change the oil, and wash it once in a while, your car becomes a junk heap in the front yard.) Eternal Life in Jesus gives people a reason for living here on Earth and forever. It is too complex and too easy to be man made.

Your diagnostic questions #2 has a typo: mould instead of would.

This is the best gospel presentation that you could ever imagine to convert a non-beliver to a beliver. Anyone who cannot fathom Jesus as God in the flesh; who walked on this Earth; plenty of
people saw and walked with him; came here to die for all mankind willfully; so the saying goes "Jesus got what he didn't deserve, so we could get what we don't deserve"; rose from the dead and was seen by many people, and now sits at the right hand side of GOD himself are either ignorant or just don't get it and have no sense. We will all stand before God someday. Prepare yourself, for the time draws near.

I would ask all un-believers to answer these two vey improtant questions: 1. Have you come to a time in your life where you know for CERTAIN that if you were to die today you would go to heaven?
2. Suppose you were to die today and stand before God and he were to say to you, "Why should I let you into my heaven?" What would you say?? These are probably the most important questions that you have ever been asked. Think very carefully because you can't use some stupid answer to get you by!!

EE has always been my method of sharing the Gospel,which I consider best.I believe every genuine church should be equipped with this.

Charity said...

Hi! The EE gospel is very useful, I've been using it for years, however, where you have the two diagnostic questions, it should be 1 John 5:13. I believe you just have John 5:13. Just thought you'd like to know about the typo. Your sister in Christ! Charity

I noticed that your articles stopped at 2012. Are there any newly posted articles. I just ran across you Blog a few days ago and am truly enjoying them.

On the part of the outline that says, Is merciful - doesn't want to punish us. The scripture should be Jeremiah 31:3b
