The Local Church and Evangelism
For more than one reason local churches often miss true perspective of Evangelism. Too often its Evangelism ministry consists of a course, a program or an isolated rally. Some of the issues that have to be put right are; a lack of vision regarding the cosmological consequences of the Gospel; a deterministic view on the election; a neglect of the many estranged people; a "volkskirche''-mentality where estranged members are accepted as normal. What is needed is a new awareness of the calling of the total body of Christ to bear witness to the Gospel. Evangelism should be part and parcel of the daily life of a healthy Church.
