Reaching Souls

One of the core values of Malabar Baptist its to reach souls through worship and fellowship. Before we consider our role in bringing people to Christ, we must first recognize God’s heart in the matter. What does the Scripture say about the eternal condition of all humanity?

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,


The Scripture makes it clear that we can’t save anyone—only God can. At the same time God asks for our assistance through witnessing. As we declare what we know and what we haveseen, God uses that testimony to bring people to Himself. Our testimony is not to be so much what God has done for us as it is to be a declaration of our understanding of who Jesus is.
