Christianity as a construct is to many people like a house with a sign on it that says, “Christianity: Do Not Enter!” On the contrary, the house into which we invite people is the house of Jesus. He’s at the door (more accurately, he is the Door) inviting people into his house. “He’s not the guy in the way. He is the way.”
The saving thing that God does is light years above our pay grade. His rescue mission is a supernatural act. Depending on our ability to “save” people is a fool’s errand. We have zero talent for it. We live in God’s story and we tell his story, but he’s the one who pulls people into the narrative.
