Outreach Literature Department
The department of Outreach Literature serves The Church of God as an avenue of personal witnessing and evangelism for each individual. Currently, this ministry offers tracts on each of the prominent teachings, giving those with the desire to share a solid, quick reference to utilize in helping others understand the truth. These tracts can be viewed online or ordered via the form, and our prayer is
that they help someone find a better understanding of Gods precious and holy Word. Proverbs 3:1-4 says, "My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man."
And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans. 26And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. 27And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? 31And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
Purpose of the Outreach Literature
DepartmentIt has been said that the most powerful force in the world today is the written word. The written Word of God is where we begin when we preach and teach while reaching out to the souls seeking to find the way to God. Let us not forget that, in Acts 8:27-35, it was the written Word that brought a man to seeking the saving knowledge of Christ. The outreach literature ministry of The Church of God is dedicated to spreading the Gospel through the written Word. Tracts have been printed for each of the basic beliefs of the Word with special emphasis on evangelism and soul-winning.
