When I say.. "I'm a Christian, I'm not holier than thou; I'm just a simple sinner who recieved God's good grace, somehow".

Go Ye Ministry (Evangelism)

Mission statement of ministry: The mission of the Go Ye Ministry is to go out to the world and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ

 The “Go-Ye” ministry was established so that the mission given to us by God to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” would be fulfilled. This ministry is made up of diligent and selfless men and women who have decided to go into the world and tell people about God and His undying love for mankind. As a ministry we are dedicated to doing the work of God because “the Spirit of the Lord is on [us], because he has anointed [us] to preach good news to the poor. He has sent [us] to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor” (Luke 4:18-19)

What is Evangelism?  Spreading of the gospel by preaching or through personal witness

Who is an evangelist?  An evangelist is one who preaches (teaches / shares) the gospel with others

Philip was said to be an evangelist( Acts 21:8) and through his works we know who he was (Acts 8:4-8).

Why do we evangelize? We evangelize to fulfill the Great Commission of God given to us by Jesus Christ.Matthew 28:19-20 , Mark 16:14-20  and to  share the gift of salvation with all mankind .Luke 5:32 ; Mark 2:17 ; Matthew 9:13

How is evangelism done? It is done through handing out of gospel tracts to others, sharing your personal testimony of salvation, door to door evangelism, organizing events like food and clothes drives, health fairs, helping out in the community where one can share the love of God with others and most importantly Living A Life where Christ is seen in You.

How does one live as Christ? Romans 12 teaches us how to live like Christ not through our own might but through the help of the holy spirit. Although we live in a sin dominated world we are not condemned to sin because of the sacrifice Christ gave for all humanity, which was to lay down His life and die a shameful death where He bore all our sins and iniquities. Though His death we have been reconciled with God and through the confession of our sins and with a repentant heart we become ‘Born Again ‘ in Christ where our past is washed away by the blood of Jesus and we are given a new life with a new identity in Christ.
