It is the Engel Scale. Originally it went from -8 "Awareness of supreme being, no knowledge of Gospel" to +5 "Stewardship" but now it is often shown as going from -10 to +10 (see eg Bill Hybel's Just Walk Across The Room). A quick Google search will reveal multiple variations, see eg this YWAM variant:

Christians go to missions inspired and commanded by the book of Matthew. Precisely: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I ...

As Chesterton himself has said, The difficulty of explaining “why I am a Catholic” is that there are ten thousand reasons all amounting to one reason: that Catholicism is true. I could fill all my space with separate sentences each beginning with the words, “It is the only thing that…” As, for instance, (1) It is the only thing that really ...

What is described in this link does seem to me to be a model for becoming a Christian but a means of describing where someone is on the spectrum of belief/faith. In particular, this document seems to employ the scale as a means of comparing some beliefs of different Christian groups. I don't think a model such as you're describing exists. To use a ...

A penitent should not go into any more details than absolutely necessary to reveal the sin. Confessors prefer that penitents get to the point and don't tell elaborate stories or be loquacious. If they need details or more context to assess the gravity of the sin, they will ask you. For example, if you confess "I killed a man.", it would be necessary to know ...

Christians believe that: There is one God, who created everything in the universe, and He is perfect -- He has never done anything bad. He is also eternal -- that means He was alive before anything was created, and will be alive forever. All people (including Christians) break God's rules, and so all of us are evil. There's no way for people to be good ...

The aim of Christian missionaries is to present the good news about Jesus Christ, for: there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. - Acts 4:12 ESV As well as preaching this good news, they are mandated with the task of making disciples of those who respond to this message with ...

I liked David's answer and +1'd it. He talks about one working motive and he is absolutely right in that regard - because a Christian cares about the one they are witnessing to - that's the answer in the Penn Jillette perspective basically. I don't necessarily see a problem with those answers, and when I share with someone, it is out of a motive of love for ...
