Have some Vietnamese friends you want to share the Gospel with? Taking a trip to Viet Nam? Here’s some good first steps and tools to share Christ with those you meet. Please contact us if you have any questions about these tools or need further assistance. There are several items listed here as well as some videos embedded so scroll all the way down to see everything. If you see something with an underline, it’s a link for viewing or downloading that material. If you are not a fluent Vietnamese speaker then we highly recommend that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with the content of these tools in English before using them (e.g. watch the videos in English before giving the Vietnamese version to someone so you can at least say that you have viewed it).
Our person salvation testimony is the overall best Gospel presentation we can make in any language. We recommend that you write out and get comfortable sharing a brief 3-5 minute salvation testimony. Be sure to write your testimony with a lost person in focus as your audience (don’t use Christianized vocabulary that they might not be familiar with). If you are planning a trip to Viet Nam and would like to have your short testimony translated in to Vietnamese before you come, please email us for help. Use the following 3 points to guide the writing of your testimony:
- My life before I met Jesus Christ Cuộc sống của tôi trước khi tôi gặp Chúa Giê xu
(Don’t glorify past sin, but give some explanation of your lostness and what brought you to your realization that you needed God.)
- How I met Jesus Christ Tôi đã gặp Chúa Giê xu như thế nào
(Share about the person or circumstances that led you to accept Christ AND share about the steps you went through such as confession, repentance and commitment to Christ as Lord of your life.)
- My life after I met Jesus Christ Cuộc sống của tôi sau khi gặp Chúa Giê xu
(Share about how your life is different since accepting Christ. Make it relevant and up-to-date. Share about how Jesus makes a difference in your life in recent months, weeks, today . . . .)
Colors of Life Tract
this tract follows a presentation of the Gospel using five colors:
- Green – God offers life to the fullest
- Black – We have sinned and are separated from God
- Red – Christ died for us to pay the penalty for our sin
- White – God offers salvation and cleansing through faith in Jesus Christ
- Gold – Following Christ offers a life of blessings unmatched to any other
This tract is often used in coordination with bracelets which can be purchased or made using the same colors. You can download the Vietnamese version of the tract or a bilingual English / Vietnamese version.

This website is a work in progress and plans are to move it to its own domain once funding is available. The website will have a very narrow focus of hosting evangelistic media in Vietnamese – video, audio and still images with an evangelistic message only. It will be a mobile friendly site and carry the capability to stream the media pieces showcased there. There are some videos including ‘The Hope’ on the site already which can be accessed here.
This is a great site for accessing all media pieces in Vietnamese from the Jesus Film folks. There are corresponding apps in the iOS and Google Play appstores. You can stream the J-film, or embed it anywhere. You can download the entire J-film to your phone or tablet as well as individual clips from the J-film or Magdelina.
