Evangelistic Vision

Our FamilyLocal evangelism is less expensive than national church evangelism. If you invited a friend and his wife for dinner, they came not because of some highly decorated invitation card but because you are their friends. They like your company in your workplace and therefore know they feel at ease in your home. No national team has to be hired to do the inviting, no large hall needs to be booked. Your home is the auditorium, your friendship is the glossy poster, your Christian witness is the appeal, your local fellowship is the follow-up.

Friends Ease

Highway SignNational church evangelism does have its place. Very often the leaders in a denomination are the only ones to have a vision for evangelism. When the small bodies fail to grow, the central body takes over and does the best it can. However, if national church evangelism is to succeed, outreach must begin in the local neighborhood. We first need to look at our own congregation to identify the spiritual health of our church. We could do this by completing a Church Growth Inventory.✞

Is your church as active as it might be? Suggest possible reasons for this and the solutions you might try.✞
