Disciples of Christ are commissioned and empowered by His Holy Spirit to love. True love is selfless, patient, kind, does not boast, is not arrogant, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own and manifests itself in action toward others (1 Cor. 13:4-8). Followers of Christ are to be salt and light (Matt. 5:16) to an insipid and corrupt world and should cultivate a sincere desire to lovingly share the good news of Jesus Christ. The good news is that Christ paid the penalty for sin for all those who repent and entirely trust in Him.

This is a list of Scriptures that are very helpful when witnessing. The word of God ought to be in hearts and readily available to our minds when we share the precious message of God's grace through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This is a systematic guideline that Adam Jaso compiled. It is very helpful to think through each step along the way and to keep in mind the Scripture that is related to each point.
This is just an example which is only intended to provide some suggestion as to how one might be able to dialogue with someone. Similar to the religious survey, this is more of a flow-chart that graphically arranges the logic of the conversation. The Scripture verses are particularly important.

Small excerpt of Charles Spurgeon concerning the theology of God's sovereignty and our responsibility to evangelize.
"150,000 people die every 24 hours—most without the Savior. We are deeply concerned that so few Christians reach out to the lost. Statistics show that this is as low as 5%. One of the reasons for this is that many don’t feel equipped. As a ministry, our sole purpose is to inspire and equip Christians—to teach them how to share the gospel simply, effectively, biblically . . . the way Jesus did. “The Way of the Master” is non-denominational. We believe and preach that the Bible is the Word of God, and that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, crucified for the sin of the world, and that He rose again on the third day. We believe and teach that salvation is by grace, through faith, and not of works." (Quote from The Way of the Master website)
