    UNIT STANDARD NOTES 
    Definition of Terms:

    Terms have been clarified as far as possible through the use of range statements. Further clarification of terms is provided as follows:
  • A testimony is similar to an eye witness account in that it is a personal account of a person's faith. However, because it is a public presentation, the testifier should make sure that the presentation of faith is as doctrinally sound as possible as well as challenging without being offensive.
