The Sinner's Prayer and True Conversion ()
Ray Byrne, October 18, 2015
Part of the Doctrine Sundays
series, preached at a Sunday Morning
Pastor Ray examines the historical development of the altar call and the sinner's prayer as 19th-20th century evangelism methodology. How do we clarify the difference between these methodologies and true conversion to Christ?
About Ray Byrne: Pastor Ray came to Grace Fellowship in May 2014 after forming a relationship with the church over the previous seven months through pulpit supply. He was drawn to the people of the church, as they were genuinely welcoming and kind. “There is a sense of community and support that occurs at Grace Fellowship that I haven’t quite seen before” says Pastor Ray. He and his wife Nicole joined with what God is doing at Grace Fellowship after eight years of youth ministry at two other churches. The transition for them has been natural as the heart and goal of the ministry is the same- Building lives of faith in Christ.
Pastor Ray has a passion for seeing the people of the church engage in disciple-making relationships and inviting others to follow Jesus together. He also has a strong burden for preaching the bible as God’s word, in a way that seeks to allow God’s truth to be revealed as we earnestly seek Him. He feels this is best done when we learn God’s story the way He laid it out; one book, one story at a time. By approaching God’s story to His people in a way that allows us to understand His truth, he believes that His story will lead us in ours.
