Impact of A Crusade

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 of all the pastors questioned, more than half had been either converted or deeply influenced as a result of a Billy Graham crusade. I believe however that local church evangelism is 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. I am dedicated to doing just that. 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 consider your own congregation. Is it a friendly group to be with?
