I can say just a few hours ago, for the first time! Once a month our church has an evangelism class. The person who was teaching and I were the only ones who went to go witness after the class. We went to the mall, he witnessed to two people, which one turned out to be a Christian already, "We found the one Christian in the mall". When he was witnessing to the other I wandered into a store nearby and made some smalltalk with a woman working on chains for necklaces in the front. I went through the Ten Commandments. She answered such as a Christian. Then the funny thing is SHE STARTED WITNESSING TO ME!!!LOL and went through the gospel. Then I told her I was witnessing to here, and it was funny, but that was my first witness. I have more courage now.

BTW, I literally felt like I was on fire when I witnessed. I got so hot under my coat I had to take it off when I left the store.

BTW#2, I'm 16

Now you?

Confess your believes and faith in Jesus Christ.

Some denominations put great emphasis on 'intentional witnessing' - going out and approaching and sharing the Gospel to complete strangers. Jehova Witnesses are the most famous ones.
IMO we are in ministry 24/7 and should 'witness' through everything we're doing. I agree with approaching strangers and sharing the Gospel with them, however I think there are other methods as well, just as good.

That's awesome SumGI!

I hope you will find more people to witness to, that aren't Christians that God can use you to work through to them.

I have witnessed before, me and my Church went street witnessing a couple of times.

But I honestly feel like I have effected more people with my example then I ever did by speaking. God of course can work through words, but you also need the actions to back up those words

I'm not saying I am a perfect example, far from it, but compared to speaking, my actions do more witnessing.

Would you consider Jehova Witnesses a denomination of Christianity?

Their theology is wrong in many places. However:
1) they mention Jesus
2) don't have a person that is greater than Jesus (like Muslims for example) other than the Father.
3) they don't have other sacred books other than OT and NT. (Even Catholics and Orthodox are considered Christians though their sacred books are not limited to OT and NT)

That is enough to make them Christians.
They don't believe in Trinity. However the word 'Trinity' doesn't get mentioned in the Bible so all that talk about Trinity is just theological debade.
In the worst case they're stuck somewhere between Judaism's and Christianity.

I respectfully disagree

The JW's believe Jesus was created by God*. Which contradicts what the Bible says.

* Look here where it says 4.1 Overview:
