Evangelism Explosion International was started by James Kennedy, pastor at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (associated with Presbyterian Church in America). In the early 1960s he began sharing the Christian gospel with people in their home, focusing on assurance of salvation. The presentation of “Do You Know For Sure” is learned in groups of three, on the job. The presentation is pivoted around the two ‘diagnostic questions’: 1. Do you know for sure that you are going to be with God in Heaven? 2. If God were to ask you, “Why should I let you into My Heaven?” what would you say?
