Dozens Respond During Wild Game Outreach

Dozens Respond During Wild Game Outreach

More than three dozen people responded to an invitation to follow Christ at a Sportsmen’s Banquet and Wild Game Dinner hosted by New City Church in Bath, Maine, on Oct. 1.

“Hunting is huge here, and the great thing about it is that … a lot of the folks who would find themselves out in the woods or spending time with a community of hunters would probably not be the ones who would be taking their families to church or coming to spiritual things,” said pastor Joel Littlefield.

Using Worldview to Share the Gospel

Does a massive wave of anxiety sweep over you when you think about evangelism and sharing your faith with others?  Do you feel intimidated and ill-equipped to share the Gospel message with an oftentimes hostile culture?  If your answer is yes to these questions,  you are not alone in your angst.  The term “apologetics” comes from the Greek word apologia.  Even though it sounds like our English word “apology,” it means something quite different. Apologia simply means “to give a defense of.”   In Scripture we are commanded to defend our faith and engage the false ideas that surround us (II Corinthians 10:3-5, I Peter 3:15), but many of us don’t know where or how to begin.  This is where training in Christian apologetics becomes a valuable and even essential tool in evangelizing our friends, family, and neighbors.

A Word from the Executive Director on Apologetics & Evanglism

Faith. Science. God. Facts. Theories. Sometimes it seems that these words are all opposed to each other. I think they are far more intertwined than we realize, but perhaps not in the way we think. Our post-Christian culture would like to separate science from faith and scientists from belief in God. But that effort to separate these interwoven concepts often forces scientists to accept mere theories as facts ... then to ignore any facts that do not fit the theory. This is causing many young adults to question the validity of their faith, which is exactly the plan of the Enemy. Can faith and science actually complement each other instead of oppose each other?
