    evangelism Quotes

    Successful evangelism involves not only harvesting, but sowing and watering, too. We must never think that because a nonbeliever remained unconvinced by our case that our apologetic has failed. For one encounter is not the end of the story.
    — William Lane Craig
    Revival precedes evangelism. The church must first repent. This is the blind spot in our eye today.

    We must neither confuse evangelism with doing justice, nor separate them from one another.
    — Timothy Keller
    When the world sees us doing evangelism, they just see us recruiting. When they see us doing justice, they see God's glory.

    Bad evangelism says: I'm right, you're wrong, and I would love to tell you about it

    I owe my nurture to evangelicalism. The evangelical wins hands down in the history of the church when it comes to nurturing a biblically literate laity. When we think of evangelism, evangelicals are the most resourceful, the most intrepid, and the most creative. But evangelicals themselves would say that they have never come to grips with what the whole mystery of the church is.
    — Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk
    We don't teach from Books of the Bible because it gets in the way of evangelism. We don't offer different kinds of Bible studies because it gets in the way of evangelism. We don't teach doctrine because it gets in the way of evangelism. If you want to be fed God's word or have the Bible explained to you then you are a fat lazy Christian and you need to shut up and get to work or you need to leave this church because we ONLY do evangelism.
    — Steven Furtick
    Apple is not sold with advertising despite the long series of clever advertisements produced for the company over the years. It is sold with evangelism, one person talking to another. The advertising reinforces the evangelist message.
    — Steve Hayden
    Prayer is the burden of revival; repentance is the breakthrough of revival; evangelism is the blessing of revival; holiness is the bounty of revival.
    — Steve Camp
    The reason I love Luis Palau is because this is a guy who is completely all about evangelism and reaching people and the lost with the gospel.
    — Stephen Baldwin
    The point of a library's existence is not persuasion or evangelism, but knowledge. It is irrelevant to the good library whether, as an institution, it shares or promotes your core values or mine, or the Attorney General's or Saddam Hussein's. The library is always an instrument of choice, and the choice is always yours, not your elected or designated leaders.
    — Robert Hughes
    For years, the church has emphasized evangelism, teaching, fellowship, missions, and service to society to the neglect of the very source of its power-worship.
    — Robert E. Webber
    The Mysteries are the Mysteries, and ultimately personal maybe the most personal thing in the universe. Evangelism, in my opinion, is a failure of the imagination. Beware of prophets: the best visions are the ones they leave in the desert.
    — Robert Charles Wilson
    Every church needs to grow warmer through fellowship, deeper through discipleship, stronger through through worship, and larger through evangelism.
    — Rick Warren
    Evangelism is not salesmanship. It is not urging people, pressing them, coercing them, overwhelming them, or subduing them. Evangelism is telling a message. Evangelism is reporting good news.

    Evangelism and the local church are inseparable. It's like the Good Samaritan seeking an inn for the one he rescued.

    How many evangelism programs have you encountered in which sharing the gospel assumes no relationship with the customer and Jesus is sold like soap?
    — Reggie McNeal
    Let's drop the whole 'atheist evangelism' thing and call out bullshit questions like 'what does atheism have to offer?' for just what they are: Bullshit. I mean, what does knowing that the Earth goes around the Sun have to offer? Who cares? It just is.
    — Rebecca Watson
    Christians and non-Christians have something in common. Were both uptight about evangelism.
    — Rebecca Pippert
    If you live by the same values and priorities [Jesus] had, you will find evangelism happening naturally. It becomes a life-style and not a project.

    Being an extrovert isn't essential to evangelism - obedience and love are.

    A need for approval lies behind all efforts of evangelism. If someone else can be convinced, that will show us that we are on the right path. The attempt to convince someone of anything is a mark of insecurity. (173)

    In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one's hand, walk an aisle, or pray a 'sinner's prayer.' As a result, the majority of Americans believe that they've been 'born again' even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a continual contradiction to the nature and will of God.
    — Paul Washer
    The Apple store is not a store. It is an exercise in evangelism.
    — Paco Underhill
    If evangelism isn't an expression of love of neighbor, it isn't Christian evangelizing. And love of neighbor includes not only what I say to the neighbor but how I say that.
    — Miroslav Volf
    The task of evangelism often involves preparing an open road so offenders can find their refuge in Christ.

    Removing Christian evangelism from the African equation may leave the continent at the mercy of a malign fusion of Nike, the witch doctor, the mobile phone and the machete.
    — Matthew Parris
    Now a confirmed atheist, I've become convinced of the enormous contribution that Christian evangelism makes in Africa: sharply distinct from the work of secular NGOs, government projects and international aid efforts. These alone will not do. Education and training alone will not do. In Africa Christianity changes people's hearts. It brings a spiritual transformation. The rebirth is real. The change is good.
    — Matthew Parris
    We Christians sometimes think we need a plan for evangelism. I don't think Jesus had an evangelism plan. I think He just interacted with the people He came into contact with.
    — Matt Diaz
    So relational evangelism? Go for it, as long as it turns into real evangelism. You hanging out having a beer with your buddy so he can see that Christians are cool is not what we're called to do. You're eventually going to have to open up your mouth and share the gospel. When the pure gospel is shared, people respond.
    — Matt Chandler
    If you add to or subtract from the cross, even if it is to factor in biblically mandated religious practices like prayer and evangelism, you rob God of His glory and Christ of His sufficiency.
    — Matt Chandler
    Today's evangelism is just as likely to take place via chat rooms and viral videos as it is in a personal conversation or a sermon.
    — Martin Lindstrom
    Spinning out of my neuromarketing work where, based on scanning the brains of 2,000 respondents' brains using fMRI, we learned that there's a huge correlation between religion and branding - and thus the way that brands intend to generate customer evangelism are to be constructed.

    Evangelism is not imposing anything on anyone; it is simply sharing the truth.
    — Mark Dever
    We do not fail in our evangelism if we faithfully tell the gospel to someone who is not subsequently converted; we fail only if we do not faithfully tell the gospel at all.

    Every believer should evangelize. I know some Christians think that evangelism is only for people with special gifts for it, but I don't believe the New Testament teaches that. While Paul does say that some believers have the call to be evangelists, all of us have the responsibility of evangelism.
    — Mark Dever
    We live in a time when people are increasingly skittish about evangelism - Christians and non-Christians alike. People are suspicious of evangelism, and misunderstand it, which contributes to our reluctance to share the gospel. When you add our fear of others' reactions as well as our natural laziness to the equation, it's not hard to see why we make such little progress in sharing our faith.
    — Mark Dever
    The difference between apologetics and evangelism is that in apologetics, you are answering objections that the world raises, whereas in evangelism, you are bringing the message that Christ brought. So unbelievers tend to set the agenda in apologetics, and you set the agenda in evangelism.

    I assume that normally the Lord will be bringing people to himself through the instrumentality of the preached word. However, we have to be very careful that we don't assume that if we are 'X' faithful in evangelism, then we will see 'Y' results right now. It doesn't work like that.

    Unfortunately, many of our churches calibrate their life to these nominal Christians. The predictable result is that you get fake, hypocritical churches that confuse the message of the gospel and make it hard for others who are trying to do genuine evangelism.
