They practiced both mass evangelism and personal witnessing. These zealous Christians used every platform available to them’. evangelism is easy when done jesus' way The outreach, or evangelism, of the Church to those still in the kingdom of darkness is to be as natural as living itself.

Evangelists are also referred to as Missionaries in some Christian cultures. Evangelism is good, but it cannot be accepted as the best possible way of spreading Christianity.

Pastor John put together a wonderful resource on evangelism for us in the “Power of 72”.

We think this is an important issue. It is our opinion that the tremendous emphasis placed on getting all believers from the time they receive Jesus to go out and evangelize not only is not scriptural but actually detracts from their spiritual growth.
