  • We desire to help and bless others and share eternal life.

  • We feel guilty that we don’t do a better job of evangelization.

  • We’ve tried to witness, etc. and have not felt successful.

  • We live in a world where nobody seems to be interested in Christianity.

To evangelize is

  • to spread the good news that

    • Jesus Christ died for our sins

    • and was raised from the dead

      • according to the Scriptures,

  • and that as the reigning Lord

    • he now offers the forgiveness of sins

    • and the liberating gift of the Spirit

    • to all who repent and believe.

Our Christian presence in the world

  • is indispensable to evangelism,

    and so is that kind of dialogue

  • whose purpose is to listen sensitively

    • in order to understand.

  • But evangelism itself

    • is the proclamation of the historical biblical Christ

      • as Saviour and Lord,

    • with a view to persuading people

      • to come to him personally

      • and so be reconciled to God.

        In issuing the gospel invitation we have no liberty to conceal the cost of discipleship.

What is outreach l.jpg
What is Outreach? Christ Jesus and His passionate pursuit to find volunteer lovers of God whom He transforms to become deliverers of men.

  • Christian outreach is evangelism.

  • It is welcoming others into the Body of Christ.

  • It is working to bless and help others so that we may share with them the message of salvation.

Why haven t we done more outreach l.jpg
Why Haven’t We Done More Outreach? Christ Jesus and His passionate pursuit to find volunteer lovers of God whom He transforms to become deliverers of men.

  • We’ve wanted to personally focus on God and grow deeper spiritually.

  • We’ve been afraid of being “friends with the world” James 4:4, I Cor. 15:33

  • Effective training has been unavailable.

  • Money, time, and energy have been a problem.

  • We are afraid of ridicule and rejection.

  • We’ve thought that only people with the spiritual gift of evangelism were needed.

Each of us is usually most comfortable in sharing Jesus in one of the above ways.

Unbelievers have comfort zones, too.

The key is to match the talkers with the talkers, the thinkers with the thinkers, etc.
