If someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way.

Styles of Evangelism
THE DIRECT APPROACH
Sometimes called the confrontational approach. Examples would be Peter in Acts 2 or Billy Graham
THE INTELLECTUAL APPROACH
This approach will give their listener reasons to believe. Examples would be Paul in Acts 17 and Josh McDowell.
THE TESTIMONIAL APPROACH
With this approach, you share your own story. Examples would be the man born blind in John 9 and Joni Erickson Tada.
THE INTERPERSONAL APPROACH
Sometimes referred to as friendship evangelism. Examples would be Levi in Luke 5:27-29 and Rebecca Pippert.
THE INVITATIONAL APPROACH
This approach involves inviting people to events where they will hear the Gospel. Examples would be Samaritan woman in John 4 and Ruth Graham.
THE SERVICE APPROACH
When people serve others in the name of Jesus, they are using this approach. Examples would be Tabatha in Acts 9:36-42 and Mother Theresa.
