The total cost of Christian outreach worldwide is $330,000.00 for each newly baptized person. The cost per baptism in the United States tops 1.5 million dollars. From the book, World Christian Trends, AD 30 to AD 2200 by David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, Christopher Guidry, and Peter Crossing.
Wouldn’t it be more efficient and effective if we simply guided our small group members to love and show that love by living like Jesus did, tell their friends and family members what Jesus has done for us and that He will do the same for them, and at the appropriate time let them know… “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”?
