Evangelism

In the Great Commission Jesus instructed us to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. That means two operations: evangelism (see other page) which is the first phase during which we make believers and set them free from sickness and demonic oppression. The second phase is “making disciples” and that means church planting.

Jesus’ call to evangelise means that we all, any believer, has the task to “spread the gospel” in one way or another, in one form or another. Again, the apostle Paul did not say that everyone is called to be an “evangelist” but he makes it clear that every believer is called to witness his or her faith, share and demonstrate the love of Jesus and pray for the people we meet.

We recognise that this is only the beginning, the first phase of bringing people to christianity. But as a ministry we take this calling very seriously and as such we put a strong emphasis that every church is focused on saving the lost and making them believers in Jesus Christ, delivering them from sickness and demonic oppression and put them on the road of spiritual growth and maturity.

As well as the regular evangelistic efforts that take place every day through various local and national activities we also have a programme of crusades in support of the local churches. We also run evangelism seminars and, wherever possible, make literature available to our branches.
