Builds Changed Lives

Billy Graham PortraitThat so many do came 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 faith gossiped and is truly for the people, of the people and by the people.✞

Builds 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 over about the possible effects of local church evangelism on the community and even upon the nation, but first let us consider why it has not been all that successful in the past. Let us look at some of the things which obstruct growth. In the process you might consider your own congregation.
