5 Keys to Successful Evangelism
Churches grow when God’s word is preached through evangelistic proclamation. Evangelistic churches are growing churches.

The New Testament Church placed priority on evangelism. They confidently shared God’s word anticipating the Spirit’s blessing.

Acts 4:31 - “They spoke the word of God with boldness.”

Acts 5:42 - “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.”

Acts 8:4 - “Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.”

When the gospel seed has been sown, it is time to reap a harvest. God promises to grant a harvest through Biblical preaching and public evangelism. The disciples were powerful evangelists. Thousands responded to the sermons of Peter and Paul. Luke describes the growth of the church this way:
Acts 6:7 - “And the word of God spread and the number of disciples grew greatly.”
The preached word transforms lives. Evangelistic preaching changes lives.
“Most startling messages will be borne by men of God’s appointment, messages of a character to warn the people, to arouse them . . . We must also have, in our cities, consecrated evangelists through whom a message is to be born so decidedly as to startle the hearers.”
Evangelism, p. 168
Around the world today, pastors, administrators and lay people are accepting the challenge and seizing the opportunity to share Christ’s truth in public evangelism. There is a renewed interest on the part of lay people in preaching the word themselves. They have sensed God’s call. Utilizing the many resources available they are proclaiming God’s word with power.

The fifth key was a significant part of the disciples’ evangelistic strategy. When people accepted Christ, understood His word and were baptized, they were integrated into a nurturing body of believers. The book of Acts describes their experience in these words:
“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Acts 2:42
