The definition of “Evangelism” is the spreading of the Christian gospel by public preaching or personal witness. It is the proclamation and/or announcement of the gospel, of the Good News about Jesus Christ. Evangelism is derived from the Greek work “euaggelion”, which means “gospel” or “Good News”. And in its verb form “euaggelizesthai” means “to announce” or “bring the Good News”.
So what does “evangelism” mean to you?
The need for love and hope in this world is ever so present, and we are called to share the love of Jesus Christ with all mankind in our local communities and abroad. I just read an article about the Church of England, and how the church is instituting a new initiative which is aimed at sharing the Good News. In England, a country where the percentage of Believers has been declining, the church leaders realize the need to do something…..and that something is “evangelism”. http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/archbishops-of-canterbury-and-york-launch-new-evangelism-initiative.html
Please share how you are involved with evangelism……we would love to hear from you! God bless you!
