Make a Good News Booklet (Gospel Tract)
If you would like to make a Good News booklet (Gospel tract) which is based on "Christ Came to Save Sinners: From Creation to Christ" on this website, then please contact me on the contact page with the your church information. This service is available to those who attend Independent Baptist churches or Independent Bible churches. Please read through all the directions carefully to make sure you will be able to complete the project before contacting me. You can ask me any questions about any of the steps at any time.
I will send you the content necessary to make the Good News booklet via an email attachment. You can create the Good News booklet in a couple steps described below.
First, I need to know your church information, as shown below:
Name of Church
Church Street Address
Church City, State and Zip Code
Website (if available)
Email me your church information to start the process using my Contact page. I will then email you a PDF file that contains the Good News booklet text (Christ Came to Save Sinners - Good News Booklet Text.pdf) (five pages) and PDF files of the Good News booklet (Christ Came to Save Sinners - Page 1 through Page 5) (five pages).
Download Adobe Reader to access PDF files if you have not previously downloaded it.
The Text Only PDF file will help you put the booklet pages in the correct order.
First, print out this instruction page.
Then, print out the Good News Booklet Text PDF file.
Next, print out the PDF Files of the Good News booklet so that the printer prints on one side for Page 1 and on both sides (duplex) for Pages 2-5. You can also manually print one side then put it into the printer again and print the reverse side for pages 2-5.
Once you have printed out however many copies of the Good News booklet that you want, you will need to cut the Good News booklet PDF print outs in half widthwise so that you get four 8.5 inch (width) by 5.5 inch (length) pages.
This can be done at your local office supply store or local printer and they will cut it in half widthwise with a machine for a reasonable price or you can use a paper cutter or you can use a pencil, ruler and scissors.
If you choose the paper cutter, align the paper so that you cut it in half width-wise at the 5 and 1/2 inch mark. If you choose the last option of a pencil, ruler and scissors, find the middle of the page lenghtwise on both sides with a ruler and mark them. Then, draw a line between the two markings and cut in half with a paper cutter or scissors. Erase left over pencil marks. Your should now have four 8.5 inch (width) by 5.5 inch (length) pages after cutting the 8.5 inch by 11 inch pages in half widthwise.
Fold the pages in half on the correct side based on the order shown on the Good News booklet text. Place a blank piece of paper on top of an empty folder below the page you are going to fold. Also place a blank piece of paper to cover the text so as not to smudge the text while folding. Use a bone folder (available at craft stores) or wooden ruler to make a smooth and even fold. Once you have folded these pages a few times, you will remember which side to fold. Next, place the folded pages in the correct order. Finally, you will need to staple them twice (top and bottom) along the folded edge with a long reach stapler, which can be purchased at an office supply store. The long reach stapler should be set at 4.25 inches for stapling.
Further, if you have enough money you could simply place an order with a local printer, though this is an expensive option.
Please do not change the content of the Gospel News booklet and please do not charge anyone for them.
May the LORD God bless you in witnessing to the lost about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
