Join us this fall for multiple online events from September to November as we take a deeper dive into the subject of evangelism.
What Is Evangelism?
Evangelism is the proclamation and manifestation of good news. The following passage from the prophet Isaiah illuminates the expansive, wondrous nature of God’s good news:
“How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of the messenger who announces peace,
who brings good news,
who announces salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” (Isaiah 52:7)
Isaiah is announcing a return to well-being and sanctuary. The good news that accompanies the reign of God is an encounter with peace, wholeness, salvation, and justice. Inclusive of our words and actions, evangelism is a ministry of the body of Christ that increases the likelihood that we are becoming a peculiar people who live like Jesus in our neighborhoods. Therefore, the good news of God’s love is a journey into a new way of life, which leads to becoming fully human.
