Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen”  

Evangelism: is the promulgation (to make known by open declaration (Like preaching), to publish, to proclaim, to set forth or teach publicly) of the Gospel of Christ; His Word the Bible.
 
Paul states a fact here in Acts…
 
 “how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house,”
Acts 20:20
 
Here is a sobering fact.  Almost 700,000 people die every day, nearly 30,000 die every hour, and approximately 500 die every minute.  That number is increasing every day.  Now understand the fact that only 33% of our world considers themselves to be Christians.  So today, 462 thousand people will die and be separated from God forever.  How many hear the gospel is up to those 33%.  For years the church has been living in the sin of silence.  How tragic!  That is why we have a fire for evangelism.  I, (we) must share the gospel because as it says in Jeremiah.
 
Jeremiah 20:9 says, “His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones.
 
Therefore we go door to door (We attempt to knock on over 1000 doors each month) asking all in our city to consider Christ Jesus, we force no one to listen we just offer them the opportunity to study with us from their bible the word of God.  If we are told no, we simply thank them for their time and move to the next door.  We truly understand all must choose for themselves;

We ask every visitor in our assembly to allow us the opportunity to sit and study the Word of God with them.  We attempt to mail out no less than 1000 pieces of mail a month to ask people to study God’s Word with us or on their own, as we have what is called correspondence courses that we mail into many peoples home, with a self-addressed stamped envelope to come back to us to grade and send out the next one.

We have available for hand out, “Search for the Truth”, DVD’S for viewing in your own home along with the side by side study guide for those who choose.  The bottom line is this…
 
 “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.””
Joshua 24:15
 
We do not tell anyone what to think, but we do try to cause them all to think about their relationship with God.  We are convicted beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is only God that can save us and it is only God we should look to please, and so we will never stop trying, we will never give up reaching out to share the love of God with all mankind. May God be pleased with our efforts.
