Evangelism is making the Good News that Jesus is Lord known to those who have not heard it before. This may involve personal witness in your neighborhood, translating the Bible into new languages, or working among Muslims in central Asia. We believe evangelism doesn't end with conversion, but includes discipleship, as well: seeing that new believers grow and mature in Christ.
