Evangelism is the Journey of building authentic, trusting relationships with those who have no hope; showing the truth, hope, and love that Jesus came to give.

Acts 20:24 (NLT)
 But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.


Acts 1:8 (NLT)
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.


1 Peter 2:9b (NLT)
As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.


2 Corinthians 5:18 (NLT)
And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.

At NewLife, we believe evangelism happens best in the context of relationships. Most of Jesus’ ministry was on a personal one-on-one level. The goal for these strategies is to develop within the believer a desire and willingness to look for opportunities to share Jesus in the everyday life of those that He has placed on the path of our life journey. 

Evangelism

Is the driest part of your town your Baptismal?
- Ron MacManus

Short Term Missions

Develop an overseas and US short term mission’s trip. Have an overseas missions trip on an every other year basis, opposite of the US based trip. 

Support of Missionaries 

Increase our current missionary support of JJ Ferrell (Romania) and Eric Thomure (Chi Alpha - USC). Each year, increase support to 2 more missionaries. 

Marketplace Evangelism

Being Jesus’ hands, feet, and mouth in the places you work and live. As a church, we want to give everyone tools to reach those around them. 

                  -Have people build a testimony of 100 words or less
                  -Develop an Invest & Invite Card
 

Evangelism in our Church

Sermon Series  
Preach two Evangelism series per year.

 

Demographics

Population = 246,937 (from 2014)
# of Christian Churches = 60  (approximate)
% of Evangelical Christians = 35% (86,427)
% that state “My Faith is Important to ME” = 17%  (41,979)

Therefore, 
    160,510 are not Christian
    41,979 probably attend church on a somewhat regular basis. 
         That would mean each church would be about 700 people. 
         If all Christians went to church, that would be 1,440 per church. 

         If all of SCV went to church, that would be 4,115 per church.          

We have to do the work of the Kingdom!

The Great Commision is not an option to be considered …
it is a command to be obeyed
