Essentials for a TRULY Evangelistic Church

The TRUE heart and soul of an evangelistic church is a congregation that is regularly engaged in developing caring “redemptive relationships” that may lead toward conversion discussions and personal gospel presentations—presentations that help unbelievers clearly understand the gospel and sincerely embrace Jesus as Savior. That may seem impossible to many pastors, but it IS what our Lord desires for local churches. And it is attainable, if the church’s leadership will strive to incorporate the following essentials into the core life of the church.
