“8 Habits of Evangelism” is HERE!

by | May 18, 2021 | News

The “8 Habits” resource, the first evangelism tool developed by the PC(USA) in more than a decade, is here.

If you have been longing for a Reformed way of thinking and DOING evangelism in your church, this resource is for you. Below is an excerpt from the resource’s preamble by Ray Jones III, Director of Theology, Formation & Evangelism:

“If evangelism is simply a tool to bring more people into our churches, evangelism is not good news. Evangelism is not good news when it is used to focus on one aspect of the faith, like eternal life. Separated from justice, evangelism is bad news. The gospel is meant to bring both hope and restoration to the world.

“The prophet Isaiah paints a compelling picture with words of those who bring a message of good news:

‘How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’ (Isaiah 52:7, NIV).’

“The good news of the gospel is that God fiercely loves us and is actively at work reconciling broken systems, relationships and lives; indeed, all of Creation.”
