MYSTORY GOSPEL TRACT

MyStory Gospel Tracts are an effective tool for sharing your Christian faith with others. It’s different from all other tracts because it combines your own personal testimony with an illustrated explanation of the Gospel.

The links on this page will guide you in creating a personalized MyStory tract on your own home computer and printer.

We pray that God will guide you in writing and creating your MyStory tract, and then open doors of opportunity for you to share them with others.

STEP 1: WRITING YOUR TESTIMONY

Please fill out the sections below for us to have the opportunity to help you with putting together your MyStory tract.

STEP 2: CREATING YOUR TRACT

General Purpose Tract

This tract can be used by anyone in all witnessing opportunities.

STEP 3: FOLDING YOUR TRACT

Start with the Gospel presentation facing up:

Make your first fold as illustrated below. Your testimony should now appear face-side up.

Now fold your testimony top to bottom so your tract looks like the illustration below.

Fold your tract one last time top to bottom so it looks like the illustration below.

STEP 4: SHARING YOUR TRACT

This is the most important step! Your tracts serve no purpose if they are not used. Ask God to open doors of opportunity for you to be bold and deliberate in sharing your tract with others. He will do the rest!

The SHARE Life process is:
S – Ask about their SECULAR life
H – Ask about their HOME life
A – Ask about their ATTITUDE or how they feel about a topic you are discussing
R – Ask about their RELIGION, i.e. their religious or spiritual background/journey
E – ETERNAL Life – Ask for permission to tell your story or give them your My Story tract which contains the story that changed your life, i.e. when someone told you what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Simply share the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit and leave the results up to God!

STEP 5: TELL US YOUR STORY!

We want to hear how MyStory Tracts have helped you in sharing the Gospel of Christ with others! You’ll not only be an encouragement to us but perhaps many others who are considering whether to create their own personalized MyStory Tract. Thank you!

Writing Your Testimony

As you write your testimony, focus on the elements of your story that illustrate God’s work in your life, how He drew you to Himself, how your heart turned to Him in repentance, and the trust you have in Christ as your Lord and Savior. It should also include what a new life in Christ is like. It is important that it is God-honoring (vs. sin-honoring) and that God’s work of redemption is shown throughout the story. It is important that all the glory goes to Him and not ourselves.

 

Tips and Guidelines

  • Write your testimony to approximately 2,500 characters or less.
  • Have an attention-grabbing opener.
  • Include the major turning point in your spiritual journey. Your story should have three parts:
    • Before the turning point: What was my life like before I was a believer.
    • How the turning point took place: How I became a believer.
    • After the turning point: How Jesus has changed my life.
  • Be realistic. Do not imply that Christ removes all of life’s problems.
  • Speak clearly about Jesus. He is the main focus.

What Not to Do

  • Do not make statements that reflect negatively on churches, organizations, or people.
  • Avoid mentioning denominations or churches by name.
  • Avoid sounding like a preacher.
  • Do not use vague terms as “joyful,” “peaceful,” ”happy,” or ”changed,” without explaining them.
  • Avoid using biblical or religious words such as “saved,” ”converted,” ”convicted,” ”or “sin” without clarifying what you mean.

Writing Style

  • Write as though you were speaking to a friend rather than giving a formal speech.
  • Be positive from start to finish.
  • Be specific. Give enough details to arouse interest.
  • Be accurate.
  • Include interesting, but compelling experiences.
  • Use one or two Bible verses, but only where they relate directly to your experience.
  • Include an attention-grabbing first sentence.
  • Write a closing that provides a finished and logical conclusion.
