Evangelism

Sharing the good news of Jesus

Evangelism is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Although not every Christian is called to be an evangelist for a living, Jesus asks all Christians to participate in sharing the gospel

Evangelism can seem intimidating to many people. But it’s important to remember that opening someone’s heart up to the gospel is ultimately the work of the Holy Spirit. Being an evangelist just means acting as a messenger for the good news. 

Getting started

Discover what the Bible says about sharing the gospel, learn how to share your faith story with others, and get suggestions for responding to common questions about Christianity. As you share the gospel, be sure to minister to the whole person; your support for someone in need shouldn’t depend on whether they’re willing to convert to Christianity.
