A Message from Chairman Patterson:

Implementing the Scruggs-Young Campaign Pledge

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…” Matthew 28:19-20


What is Evangelism?

The scriptural mandate of evangelism is Matt. 8:19-20, called the Great Commission.   Evangelism—  “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations”—is a command to go and make disciples of all nations.   It is a two pronged enterprise.  It involves winning the lost and making disciples of those won.  (1) “baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  (2) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”
 
(1) Going and witnessing, with the intent of reaching and winning the lost
(2) Making disciples of those won
 
A simple definition states that evangelism is reaching and teaching all nations.

 


Mission Statement
