"For how can they believe in Him, unless they hear? And how can they hear about Him, unless someone tell them?"
Paul, about Jesus - Romans 10:14
The passage from the Scriptures quoted above goes on to say "And how will anyone go, unless they are sent?". We are such people, who have been sent by the Lord Jesus and therefore go.
Once a month we go out to deliver Gospel tracts to people's doors or give them out in public places.
Read the Bible
How can I be saved?
It is nothing of you - Jesus is the Perfect One who has purged all our sins, so that you and I may be saved from death.
Trust that Jesus can save you
Acknowledge that you do need His help - that it was for YOU that He died on the Cross. To pay the debt you couldn't pay.
Truly believe in your heart
Accept the truth of God's Word - that Jesus is Lord of all. Yes questions remain, but accept that answers will come in time.
Invite the Lord into your life
Simply ask Him to be your Lord and Saviour forever. Ask Him to show you that He is the Son of God, as He says He is.
The Mobile Unit is in many ways a diverse bunch of people - whether socially, ethnically, culturally, and spanning across several generations.
But this we have in common, that we love the Lord because He loved us first. This love of His is our merchandise, His Gospel our delivered goods.
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me."
Jesus, about Himself - John 14:6
How should I follow Jesus?
In all things check what people tell you in the light of God's Word - nothing else will do - and that applies to me too! So...

Prayer is simply speaking with God, whether out loud or inwardly. Take time to listen to Him as well as speak. Nothing to worry about: God already knows all about you.
The Mobile Unit has been running for over 100 years, and in that time the perseverance and dedication of the workers has been one and the same: to share the good news of Jesus Christ. We thank God for the service He has called us into, and praise Him for the witness we bear. If one of our tracts has brought you here today, know this: it was God who meant it.
The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environmental Act 2005 (CNEA) gives power to local authorities to control distribution of free literature in places such as town centres. This legislation only applies to England and Wales. The new council powers aim to prevent litter caused by large numbers of handbills handed out by nightclubs and other businesses. Sometimes the police work with local councils to ensure that the law is enforced.
The CNEA 2005 amends Schedule 3A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (EPA). Section 1 (1) of schedule 3A states :
"A person commits an offense if he distributes any free printed matter without the consent of a principle litter authority on any land which is designated by the authority under this schedule where the person knows that the land is so designated."
However, section 1 (4) of schedule 3A provides a very clear exemption for the distribution of religious or political literature and for charities. It says; (4) nothing in this paragraph applies to the distribution of printed matter: a. by or on behalf of a charity within the meaning of the Charity Act 1993, where the printed matter relates to or is intended for the benefit of the charity; b. where the distribution is for political purposes or for the purpose of a religion or a belief.
The CNEA 2005 cannot be used to impose restrictions on giving out Christian literature in public. Christians can distribute tracts, Bibles and Christian literature in their town centres without having to seek permission from the local authority.
Any attempt by a council to limit this activity would appear, in our view, to be an unlawful breach of the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, as enshrined in the Human Rights Act 1998.
If the Police or local authority attempt to rely on the CNEA 2005 to impose restrictions on handing out Christian literature in the open air on public land, give them a copy of section 1 (4). (you could print out this page.) They should be asked for an official apology, in writing. They should also be asked to confirm that section 1 (4) of Schedule 3 will be brought to the attention of other police officers or council officials so the mistake will not be repeated.
