 A Biblical based personal philosophy of communication involves the integration of the Bible teaching in an individualistic engagement of passing information. Communication plays a key role in human relations[1]. Fundamentally, it is a method of organization, an agent of social change, a platform for exchanging ideas and information, and a means for building relations and mitigating conflicts in the community[2]. For the Christians, communication is the key element of educating and instilling the Christian values to a congregation, families, and young ones. Spreading the word of God through Bible teaching involves an integrative approach that can be drawn from the situations that occurred in it. The fact that communication is the most valuable tool human beings possess, puts these methodologies in a significant position for the spread and sustainability of Christianity. Arguing from this perspective, the paper presents a variety of ways that God calls His people to indulge in passing the word. The methods that have a biblical foundation can be addressed as follows.

Through the Bible in General

The Christian Bible contains information that has been inspired or spoken by God. According to second Timothy 3:16 the scripture is a God-breathed document that can be used for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in Christianity. In this context, Timothy alludes that the word is a guide provided by God to lead humanity in all aspects of performing good work. Throughout the Bible, God is seen to whisper and sometimes shouts giving instructions and principles that His people should follow in life. Through interpretation of the scripture to other people, Christians can indulge in a communicative approach that facilitates positivity and reconciliation with self and others.

Through His Son, Jesus Christ            

Critical reviews of the Bible suggest that the gospel was the manifestation of the execution of God’s plan. The gospel is referred to as the good news of Jesus Christ. In this context, Hebrews 1:1-2 shows that in the period of the Old Testament God spoke to His people through the prophets. The coming of Jesus Christ represented a new vessel that God applied to pass his message, by making him the inheritor of all things and through Him the world was saved. Through the words spoken by Jesus, humans can hear God’s voice, and it is not for only the selected few but the whole world. The sentiments are evident in the scripture “For God so loved the world…”..
