What is Witnessing?
We believe that all believers are called to witness, and we believe that witnessing means telling others what we have seen, not telling them how we think they should be or why we think we're right and they're wrong. It's about telling your story, literally testifying about what you've seen (witnessed) and putting yourself in position to be asked more about your faith, maybe years down the road.
There are two ways you witness when you use FaithNames email. Actually, it's more like two phases: the "Footer" and the "Witnessing Website"
"Phase 1" - The Footer
Phase 1 is the footer at the bottom of every email you send that includes a scriptural snippet that ties to the domain name in your email address. For example, if you choose "Christ.DiedFor.Us" as the domain for your email (meaning your email address is you@Christ.DiedFor.Us), then every email you send will include this footer at the bottom:
Any email recipient that clicks on the live link in the footer at the bottom of every email will go to the matching witnessing website for that topic. So if you chose You@Christ.Diedfor.Us as your email address, then each email you send will show the footer above at the bottom, and the live link in that footer will go to www.Christ.DiedFor.Us. Please click here or on www.Christ.DiedFor.Us to see the witnessing website your recipients will see if they click on the link in your email to them.
The footers and their matching witnessing websites are the reason FaithNames was formed. It's not about the email, it's about witnessing to the lost using every available tool, including email.
here to view a summary
of all our witnessing websites, and please remember we continue
to add to the list.
The example above applies only to email using the domain Christ.DiedFor.Us. If you choose another of our domains, such as AtThatMoment.net (meaning your email address is you@AtThatMoment.net), then a different footer and different website will display, ones that fit that scripture from Matthew 27:51.
More about witnessing and domains
You may notice that we don't offer any domains that might be seen as telling others more about the sender than about the gospel. For example, we don't provide email addresses like James@ImSoHoly.com or Sherry@GetSavedLikeMe.com (slight exaggerations of the point) since it's not about Joe or Sharon or showing the world anything about them. We want to provide email addresses that are scriptural yet intriguing to the lost and that relate directly to the message of the gospel. Everything is centered on getting the lost person onto one of the witnessing websites and engaged in a brief presentation of the basics of the gospel.
have considered domains like John3v3.com but as of now we plan on
staying with the domains that are brief phrases like Once-For-All.com,
AtThatMoment.net, etc, since we believe they will be more likely
to get clicks from the lost than overt scriptural domains.
