Builds Changed Lives

Billy GrahamThat so many do and have in previous decades come to a very real faith through television and crusade evangelism cannot be denied. A questionnaire in the Liverpool area some years ago showed beyond a shadow of a doubt that among all the pastors questioned, more than half had been either converted or deeply influenced as a result of a Billy Graham crusade. Local church evangelism is however in the long run better than crusade evangelism. It concentrates on building relationships in a worshipping group and influencing a community for Christ by using the gifts and skills of the local church body. Local evangelism is essentially faith gossiped and is truly for the people, of the people and by the people.

Free Lives

Local church evangelism is the non-addictive, freedom bringing, joy expressing opium for the masses. It builds changed lives, strong families and a healthy prosperous nation. It is easy to bubble about the possible effects of local church evangelism on the community and even upon the nation, but let us consider why it has not been all that successful in the recent past. Let us look at some of the things which obstructed growth. In the process, you might gain fresh insights into our own congregation!✞
