10 Effective Ways To Spread Christianity

by David Peach · Print Print · Email Email

Sharing your faith with others can be done in many different ways. We should all be willing to give an answer to those around us as to the hope we have in Christ (1 Peter 3:15).

Here are some effective ways to spread Christianity to those around you. My prayer is that you not limit yourself to just these suggestions. Use them as a launching pad to other creative ways of sharing your faith. Please leave a comment below with other suggestions or alternatives to the ones mentioned.

Carry Tracts

Have tracts with you that you can give out any time you have an opportunity. There are tracts that are general in nature, but you can also find a variety of tracts that are situation appropriate. By this I mean you can get tracts that are written for waiters and waitresses, various holidays and events, as well as location specific tracts. Try to carry a variety of tracts in your purse or car so that you are ready to give one to those you meet.

Leave tracts in public place like the restaurant and coffee shop or on public transportation. When you return a book to the library you can leave a tract in it. Don’t stuff every book on the shelves with tracts. That can be considered vandalism and poor taste. But putting them in some of the books you return can be a witness to the librarian when the book is processed.

Effective Ways To Spread Christianity
Share your faith on Twitter and Facebook by including an occasional Bible verse.

Social Networks

Share your faith on Twitter and Facebook by including an occasional Bible verse. Share with others what that verse means to you and why it is important in your life. You can do this without being “preachy.”

Even as a Christian I sometimes skim over Bible verses from friends who spam their own social feeds with them. You should include enough other content that the Bible verses fit well with the information you are providing. This will make the verses stand out and give you a chance for further interaction.

Always Have a Bible Handy

You should always be ready to share your faith with those who may ask. You can get a small New Testament to carry with you at all times. There are many Bible apps on smartphones for various platforms. This allows you to always have a Bible with you.

Share Your Testimony

Look for opportunities to share your testimony with others. One of the most effective witnessing tools you have is your own Christian testimony. Telling others how God changed your life gives them a chance to see that God is real to you and that you want them to have the same relationship with Him that you have.

You can write out your testimony so that you can share a copy with a friend or even strangers. You can include a copy of what the Lord has done for you in your annual Christmas letter to your family.

Bible Distribution

There are different groups that hand out Bibles at special events. Ask your pastor if he knows of an opportunity in your area.

The pastor I worked with in Mexico was saved as a result of a Bible distribution ministry. Someone slipped a copy of John and Romans under his door one afternoon. He read that Bible and sought out the missionary so that he could learn more. That pastor is now involved in a ministry to distribute Bibles in millions of homes in his region of Mexico.

Go on a Mission Trip

You can go on a mission trip within your state or in another country. Even if you can’t speak the language well you can show God’s love with those you meet. You can use an interpreter to share the story of why you traveled so far to share Christ with them.

Share a Movie With a Friend

Have you watched a good Christian movie lately? Try watching the movie together instead of giving it to your friend to watch alone. This gives you a chance to answer any questions as they come up. You also have a shared experience to talk about when other questions arise. If something in the movie applies to a current conversation you can say, “it is kinda like that time so-and-so did this in the movie.” Then you can use that as an opportunity to share more about the Lord.

Include Tracts in Correspondence

When writing Christmas or birthday cards to your friends and family include an appropriate tract for the occasion. These work well in sympathy cards if done tastefully with the right tract. You can even include tracts with payments you mail each month.

Genuinely Care for Others

Comfort your friends and co-workers with God’s love when they go through hard times. If you are loving and caring to your friends they will come to you when they have problems. Maybe you have recently read a Bible-based article that speaks to the problem your friend is facing, share the article with them. When they know you care they will gladly accept your offers of help.

Local Shelters

There are many food and homeless shelters around the country which need volunteers. People who come to these shelters are expecting to have the Bible taught to them. This makes them a willing audience to hear you tell about the Lord. Sit down with those around you and share what Christ has done in your life. There is no need to be judgmental. The fact that you are there and offering to help shows them that you have at least a small level of love towards them. In a loving and kind way make a connection and take the opportunity to spread your Christianity.

Please share your thoughts below on how we can all be a better witness for the Lord.

Dave, this is tremendous and I thank God for you sir that you are living out the Great Commission which for many believers is the “great omission.” I love the idea of spreading the gospel but am not surprised because, knowing you and your work, you have a passionate heart for the lost. Thank you for a superb work. May God bless you for your labor of love and I pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send forth more laborers such as you. Hace perfecto! (yo hablo Espano, pero no es perfecto! LOL)

You are an encourager Jack. Thank you.

There are so many simple ways to spread the Gospel that I think we often overlook good opportunities.

I found I can best share my faith if I share my own personal experiences w/ those going thru what I myself experienced. I can then share how God delivered me.


Mikayla September 2, 2012 at 1:07 am

Thank you so much for these tips! I’m 16 years old, and I’m desperately trying to find ways to make Jesus famous in my school. I live on the “Bible belt” and it’s really hard to share my faith with people who either are forced to go to church and don’t want to hear it, or don’t care. I just wish more of my brothers and sisters in Christ would take a stand with me for Jesus, but until then I’ll try these things. Thanks again! God bless!

Just tell your story. Bring what Christ has done for you into it and make Him the hero.


alex fithen October 21, 2012 at 6:27 pm

jaco. if you have to MAKE him the hero of the story, i personally think that your story need to be thought over a little more


Samuel Macharia December 5, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Thanks David for the information i desperately needed. May The Almighty Everlasting Father thro’ His Beloved son Jesus bless and strengthen you in your mission work in a mighty way.
I’m in Thailand working and at the same time thinking of ways to reach out. To God be all the Glory.

To help spread the gospel, I created a web site called http://www.mansioninheaven.com. It contains my personal testimony, a gospel tract that I wrote using the “Romans Road” plan of salvation, and a “Verse of the Day” section that focuses on a different Bible verse or passage each day. Then my husband and I distributed “business cards” inviting people to visit my web site, and I’ve also mentioned my web site when I replied to comments on a couple of Internet bulletin boards. It’s amazing how many people you can reach throughout the world this way.

İt is Christians duty that we share.We need to share while it is day time(jesus says when evening comes we can not work).While we have chances and oppurtunies we need to share not thinking about the outcome like reactions,oppositions etc.I always had the idea that if people are not coming against you that means Bible is not shared especially amoung other beleifs/religions.Some also mock ridicule undermine etc when we share.Our job is to spread the seed

Or just include a link to the animated gospel tract ‘www.freecartoontract.com/animation’ in your email signature, saying something like, ‘p.s. you might like this gospel cartoon …’.


Bianca November 30, 2015 at 6:42 pm

I go on a website and when the box in the right hand corner pops up i say yes to their question. I get the tutor’s name and tell them Jesus loves them and that I’m praying for them! sometimes it works and sometimes not. when it does work though I carry the conversation out. After a little bit admit you are not there for tutoring and remind them you are praying for them and then say goodbye and leave:-)


R. Bermudez February 27, 2016 at 7:56 pm

I have a small silent ministry that I take to different countries of the world. I write short verses on clam shells and leave it on plant pots, desk anywhere visible to everyone’s eye. I love dropping these shells in casino’s as well.


Brendan April 2, 2016 at 10:58 pm

Wow! It’s impressive that you want to share faith so early! I’m 22 and from around the bible belt as well. It’s very hard to talk to people sometimes, and I totally understand what you are saying. Continue to press forward and pray on it. That’s the best thing you can do! God bless and I hope you have a great year!


Melissa May 19, 2016 at 10:26 am

I would like to know how I can spread the word? I love the lord. I want to do my part but feel really guilty and ashamed to do so because I sin daily. At least it seems that way. I also have such a fear of talking about our lord because I don’t have good comunacation skills. I’ve tried in the past only to be asked questions that I know the answer to in my mind, but coming out of my mouth it makes no sense to the person. Then there’s questions asked like (if gods real why do baby’s die?) This stops me from trying. Any suggestions or ideas on another route I can take?


Jack Wellman May 19, 2016 at 10:33 am

Thank you Melissa about wanting to spread the gospel. Here’s an article that can help show you how to do it at this link: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-share-the-gospel-with-family/ As for babies that die, the Bible is clear that they are with the Lord after death. Don’t let that baby dying be a stumbling block for you not to share the gospel. Jesus said “go” (Matt 28:19-20) and we must obey, regardless of all the unanswered questions we have.


auntiealice November 30, 2016 at 8:54 pm

Thank you for your suggestions on helping to spread God’s Word. Another helpful tool is the phone. When telemarketers call you, answer them by asking if the are saved or “do you know Jesus?” Some will probably hang up but you may have that one person who is ready to receive the good news.


Alex December 21, 2016 at 10:37 pm

Hello Mr. Peach. I have a question. What do you mean by ‘tract?’ Is that like a piece of paper that says something about God? What is it? Also, thank you for this post 🙂


Tiana January 28, 2017 at 9:11 am

Small but mighty. I am a 6th grader and am looking forward to spreading Christ through out my school.


panashe February 21, 2017 at 4:43 am

larisa sheets February 24, 2017 at 2:04 pm

cory.minor.alexander February 21, 2018 at 6:28 am

Dave, my name is Cory minor , and i have been in foster care since i was 1 week old and i am 14 now , in my high school i have been trying to spread my christian faith but others don’t seem to listen. when i try to tell them about Jesus and what he can do for them they sometimes cut me off and tell me that i am forcing my beliefs to them, and that is not how i want to come off. can you help me ?


Jack Wellman February 21, 2018 at 10:05 am

Hello Cory. First of all, we cannot save anyone. God uses us as a means to save some, but not all will respond to your witness. And too much trying to force Jesus down someone’s throat turns people off.

Emmanuel Adom September 17, 2019 at 11:18 am

First of all, God bless you for the wonderful work you are doing in expanding the kingdom of God. The method is good but please can all fit in the African continent. am a minister of the gospel


Jack Wellman September 17, 2019 at 11:33 am

Hello Emmanuel. The gospel is the power of God through His Word and works in the USA just as it would in the deep jungles of the Amazon. It takes the Word of God from a person of God with the Spirit of God to make the children of God for the glory of God, so it is effective, no matter where a person is on the earth.


Victoire Maombi July 10, 2020 at 7:49 pm

GOD bless you really, I am blessed to get this information on how to spread the Gopel of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
