3 Old Churches in Nigeria that took evangelism to the highest level in the 90s
Evangelism entails the propagation of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The main purpose of evangelism is to bring to the notice of the unbelievers the life, death, burial, resurrection and the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the essence of life, after death. The Bible says
“righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” proverbs 14:34
Evangelism brings to the notice of rhe unsaved the things that he thought are right but that is wrong before the Lord. As a result of evangelism in Nigeria, a lot of lives have been turned around from their evil ways to the ways of the Lord. If we might trace it back to the 30s, during the time of Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola, a lot of exploits, recovery, miracles and perfect transformations from demonic influenced life, to the embrace of the Lord Jesus Christ were realized severally in the lives of the new converts then. Now to the present time, what is the position of evangelism, even in Nigeria? How many churches nowadays still take evangelism as the most important aspect of spirituality and divine calling?
Evangelism and the act of propagating the good news to the lost is a supposed activity that should be the prevalent part of the churches. It is suppose to be given the utmost attention, being the major reason why the Lord came in the first place, to save the souls of the people. To die for their sins.
However, there are still some churches in the country that has not relent on their efforts towards the indepth propagation of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Below are some of the churches;
1. Jehova Witnesses:
