1.) CHURCHES — First, how come EVERY Church is not out knocking on doors. I am not talking about Mormon’s and JWs. I am talking about Bible believing churches. What if EVERY Church door knocked on Saturdays? There are even Baptist Churches that do not soul win. What if every Baptist Church door Knocked? We could change the world!!! When you knock…get it out your are Baptist RIGHT AWAY…because most will think you are “the other guys”/
A.) Churches — While we are blaming churches…how come there are only 2 Independent Baptist Churches in your city? Hmmmm….I live in a city of about 85,000 people. There’s ROOM FOR MORE. In 2020, yes, 2020 – in the middle of COVID we pioneered a church i n Grants Pass, Oregon. In 2022, we are sending a church to Eagle Point, Oregon. Our Pastor has plans for many cities around Medford, Oregon and in Medford. If you are a Pastor and your vision is not for your city —to build the Kingdom…then get out! I hear McDonald’s is paying $18 an hour…probably more than some Pastors make in their church.
2.) PEOPLE — When you get to the door…you are usually greeted by someone who says, “I have no idea if I am going to Heaven or not.” Then the Soul Winner says, “Can I show you from the Bible…it will take just 5 minutes…maybe 10 minutes?” Then the guy at the door says, “It’s not a good time I am really busy right now…” Then you look at his hands and he has a game controller. Yup he is busy.
A.) SHAME ON THEM — If your church will not Soul Win…then SHAME ON THEM. If you are a Baptist…DOUBLE SHAME ON THEM. Have your Pastor call me…he gots some ‘splaining to do! However, it does not have to be SHAME ON YOU!!!!
B.) YOU BE THE SOUL -WINNER AT YOUR C HURCH — Talk to your Pastor. Now…PLEASE don’t say, “SHAME ON YOU PASTOR…BAD BABY BAD BABY!!!” Just ask him, “Pastor, I was wonder why we do not go Soul Winning as a church?” Let him answer. The more you talk…the easier it is for him to wiggle out of it. Once he answers…say, “Do you mind if we start an outreach program this Saturday. I’ll help?” If he says anything other than “Yes, lets do that.” or “Yes, but lets put some more in to planning it…” and gives you a firm start date. Then GREAT! Don’t let him wiggle out. If he says anything other then an affirmative. Then ask, “Would it be OK, if my wife or husband and I grabbed a couple interested people and go out Soul Winning? If he says…”great…do it!!!” Fantastic…find some people to help you, if you can’t find anyone to help right away…go yourself. If he says, “No, we don’t do that.” Then, go to the Yellow Pages and look up King James Preaching, Bible Believing on fire for Jesus, Independent Baptist Churches and RUN for the exit. Send your Pastor a letter or an email. Be kind, thank him for everything, wish him well and tell him that you would rather be involved with a church who’s focus is on people and keeping people from going to Hell.
C.) TRAINING — What if you do not know how to Soul Win? That’s OK…we all started somewhere. We live in the land of YOUTUBE and SOCIAL MEDIA! You can practically get a PhD online. I got one the other day and it was the BEST DARN Post Hole Digger that I have ever bought…let me tell you! The other thing of note…is door to door is one of the best places to sharpen your soul winning tools.
Here are some links (other than my own Church, I do not necessarily agree with everything someone may be preaching.
The links I share OUTSIDE my church, I like the teaching and I really have no disclaimers with these specific messages….great SOUL WINNING TEACHING)

If you love detail and I do…it is worth watching Pastor Roger Jimenez Soul Winning Seminar…very good stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2bAyQHgRs0
He lays out great rules…Remember we are ambassadors of Christ and of your Local Church. Don’t walk on the grass, don’t interrupt, don’t sit in their furniture, dress appropriately, How to handle no soliciting signs, use breath mints…etc. Always be polite, pleasant and kind no matter how they treat you!!!
Remember you are uninvited guests…so act accordingly. Great Stuff. Oh, I said this already 🙂 …well, Don’t miss this!!! There is also other great training on Soul Winning out there. Some very good.
I would suggest you look through your church archives first. Look through my Church Archive’s: https://www.youtube.com/…/UCjyxS…/featured
Can we talk? I have been saved since August 16, 1989. I have seen a lot since that time. I have seen a lot happen in the Church. But nothing like we are seeing today!
I have went Street Preaching on Friday Night downtown Medford, Oregon and then Soul Winning on Saturday morning either door to door or passing tracts out in the park and Sunday Morning we had trouble finding seats for the visitors.
I have also been through a week long outreach, passing out flyers and tracts…over 10,000 flyers…and we were lucky to see one visitor on opening night of Revival Meeting. But we praised God anyway!
But I have never seen in 32 years of salvation and ministry anything like we are are seeing today. I am not a date setter…if I had to GUESS with everything I am reading in the Bible…with everything going on in the WORLD…I know our time left is short….how short…within the next 10 years…maybe sooner…maybe as soon as 2028. I don’t know…but very soon.
2 Thessalonians 2:2-3, “That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ [The Rapture] is at hand.Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”
The King James Bible tells us that “THE DAY OF CHRIST” [the Rapture] is at hand. The rapture is coming very soon…BUT 2 things MUST happen first.
(Note: Most of the Modern Trashlations flip flop The Day of Christ for the Day of the Lord here. The Day of Christ is the Rapture, The Day of the Lord is The Wrath of God. No one believes we will be here for the wrath of God. No pre-tribber, mid-tribber or post-tribber…yet the Modern Trashlations CHANGE the Words to say we are here. huh? )
Another discussion for another day.
Two things MUST happen before the Rapture:
1.) A Great Falling Away (People are going to leave the church…leave their faith!!! By the bajillions!) We already see this happening…and it will get worse.
-2.) The man of sin [The antichrist] MUST be REVEALED. Never before have we seen so much happening at the same time that lines up with Scripture – COVID, CASHLESS SOCIETY, MARK REQUIRED TO BUY OR SELL (coming soon) – now we must show our vaccination card to go to work, shop in certain stores, eat at restaurants, patronize businesses…whole cities all over the world are putting all of this in motion. And so much more.
ThE GREAT COMMISSION by JESUS is for us to win souls. Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:45-49, John 20:21, Acts 1:8
Hebrews 10:25, “…and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
