The Apostle Paul said, “I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some. Now I do all this because of the gospel, so I may become a partner in its benefits” (1 Cor. 9:22-23)
At Worship Tabernacle, evangelism is to ask,
“What does the good news sound like to the people around us?”
“How best can we share it with them in a manner that they can understand?”
Realising that the best evangelism is relational, we cannot evangelise from a distance – those days are gone. To be able to reach people, we have to move closer to them we do this by engaging with the Homeless in the Borough, engaging people at the various seasonal markets, cleaning the streets, We support the Great Ormond Children’s hospital with gifts at Christmas. We also meet with people weekly on the streets of Hammersmith and Fulham praying and sharing the Love of God.
We will be visiting people in Prison and setting up a vibrant befriending of the Elderly Scheme this year. We also believe in disciplining the younger generation by engaging them digitally.
Causing people to realise their worth in God’s eyes is not something optional. Paul even goes as far as saying, “Woe to me if I do not evangelise!” (1 Corinthians 9:16). For us, evangelising is the direct consequence of our attachment to Christ. Through his resurrection, Christ unites us inseparably to God. And at the same time, humanity is no longer fragmented: since the resurrection, we belong to one another.
