“Evangelism comes from the Greek words euaggelion — a good message, or gospel — and euaggelizo — to announce, declare, bring, or preach this good news. Notice the word “angel” tucked inside the word — an angel is a messenger. Those who practice evangelism are indeed delivering a message: One of extraordinarily good news, life-giving and transformative, with eternal ramifications. So, how can we evangelize to people we don’t know? The most important thing we can do is pray for them. Pray that God would change their hearts and open their eyes to the truth of the gospel (2 Corinthians 4:4). Pray that God would convince them of His love for them and their need for salvation through Jesus Christ (John 3:16). Pray for wisdom as to how to best minister to them (James 1:5).
We must be willing and bold in our actual sharing of the gospel. Proclaim the message of salvation through Jesus Christ to your friends and family (Romans 10:9–10). Always be prepared to speak of your faith (1 Peter 3:15), doing so with gentleness and respect. There is no substitute for personally sharing the gospel: “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ” (Romans 10:17).
In addition to praying and sharing our faith, we must also live godly Christian lives in front of our friends and family members so they can see the change God has made in us (1 Peter 3:1–2). Ultimately, we must leave the salvation of our loved ones up to God. It is God’s power and grace that saves people, not our efforts. The best we can do is pray for them, witness to them, and live the Christian life in front of them. It is God who gives the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6).
The Church of St. Maximos and St. Domadios exists as a mission church for spiritual awakening through a personal and growing relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We provide a place of worship for all people of all languages and backgrounds in being transformed through Jesus Christ’s love.
To evangelize and share the good news of the Holy Gospel through accepting, serving, and loving his people of every culture and walk of life in an ever changing and diverse Canadian culture. We strive to live out Gospel values and principles while observing the traditions and sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria.
We are blessed to be a blessing
Together in one body Christ Jesus our lord
