Evangelism

What is evangelism?

Evangelism is every possible way of reaching, reclaiming, and reconciling people unto Jesus Christ for the purpose of uniting them with His church and moving them through membership to discipleship. Evangelism is more than telling people how much we love God. Evangelism is our ability, our calling and our responsibility to articulate the full gospel of Jesus Christ to the “unchurched,” and “unsaved” for the purpose of bringing them into saving faith in Jesus Christ. This means we must be willing and committed to being actively engaged with non-believers.
The Department of Evangelism develops and promotes programs that help local congregations become more aware of and involved in evangelism. The department directs workshops, seminars, and conferences, at annual, district and local congregational levels on the meaning of and strategies for evangelism in the church. To engage, equip, and empower every local church to strategically incorporate intentional evangelism into its ministry philosophy and practice.

To develop and train comprehensive ministry teams in each local church, to identify visitors, follow-up with them, and create and facilitate a path forward to move them from visitor, to regular attender, to committed member, to evangelist in their sphere of relational influence.
