Perspective is an evangelism tool used for initiating spiritual conversations and meaningful dialogue on the person of Christ.

Many people’s worldviews are becoming increasingly eclectic, while the Christian worldview is becoming increasingly irrelevant and confusing. Perspective Cards allows people to share what they believe, explore the Christian worldview, and take the next step on their spiritual journey in an environment where they feel safe.

Some basic understanding about who God is can begin to make sense of our lives and open up the possibility, not just of knowing God as an idea, but of encountering him as a living reality. In this outline we’ll consider five roles of God and what that means for us personally and the world as a whole.

To get a clearer picture of both what it means to become a Christian and to be a Christian, we need to know the big story of the Bible. We’ll use a simple outline: Creation, Fall (how the creation was ruined), Rescue, Judgement, New Creation; and ask three questions: What was God’s intention for the world (and what was our part in that)? What has gone wrong in the world (and how has that affected us)? What is God doing about that (and how does he involve us?).
