Welcome to Grace and Truth Evangelism

Our purpose

The purpose of this website is to provide those interested in helping to fulfill the Great Commission with training,

support, and a schedule of upcoming events.

Why do we proclaim and preach the gospel, the good news of and about Jesus Christ? Because Jesus says so.


Matthew 28: 18-20 (NKJV) - And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven

and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the

Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always,

even to the end of the age.” Amen.


Mark 16:15 (NKJV) - And He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”


Romans 15:20-21 (NKJV) - And so I (Paul) have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I

should build on another man’s foundation, but as it is written: “To whom He was not announced, they shall see; And

those who have not heard shall understand.”


Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV) - And He Himself (Jesus) gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and

some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of

Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God.


Matthew 9:37-38 (NKJV) - Then He (Jesus) said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.

Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

The Mission

One of the most challenging of evangelistic activities is street evangelism. This is where the Bible-believing, born-again

follower of Jesus Christ approaches a total stranger for the purpose of explaining the gospel to them.


When most people think of evangelism, this is exactly what they have in mind. It can be intimidating to them, but it is

also very rewarding.


There are people who, unless they hear the gospel from a stranger, are not likely going to hear it at all. Many encounters

are with people who are completely outside of the faith and ignorant of the basics of the gospel (i.e., Jesus died in the

place of sinners).


But that is exactly why this kind of evangelism is exhilarating. You never know who you are going to talk to. They could

be an atheist, an agnostic, a Roman Catholic, Messianic Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Oneness Pentecostal, member of an

apostate church, Muslim, New-Ager, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness, or a self-righteous false convert. Perhaps the person

is a true Christian who just needs some discipleship training. This is exactly what makes evangelism compelling and

frightening.

Reasons Why

Here are a few reasons why we should evangelize:


1. God is glorified. Whether someone is saved or not, when God’s name is proclaimed, He is glorified.

2. Fellowship becomes more meaningful.

3. Prayer becomes deeper.

4. Bible study becomes more of a priority.

5. We lose the fear of man, and develop more a fear of God.

6. When we share the gospel with someone, a great sense of accomplishment is achieved. “Whew!!! I DID IT.”

7. There is revival in the church.

8. Society is changed.

9. When someone repents of their sins, puts their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, is changed by the power of the Holy

Spirit, there is rejoicing in heaven, and God gets the credit.


The biblical training in evangelism that we use comes from the “The Way of the Master.”


Dr. Bill Bright from Campus Crusade for Christ estimated that only 2% of Christians actively share their faith on a regular

basis. Are you a Two Percenter?
