Christian Quotes About Evangelism

We should be holy people eager to greet our Lord when He returns, ready at any moment for the trumpet’s call, people of optimism, busy in evangelism, hands to the plow, eyes on the prize.  ~ David Jeremiah

I am convinced, by the way, that friendships provide the most fertile soil for evangelism. When the reality of Christ is introduced into a relationship of love and trust that has already been established, the effect is powerful. And it seems that invariably, when someone becomes a true follower of Christ, that person’s first impulse is to want to find a friend and introduce that friend to Christ.  ~ John MacArthur

Evangelism can never be finished, but missions can be finished. The reason is this: missions has the unique task of crossing language and culture barriers to penetrate a people group and establish a church movement; but evangelism is the ongoing task of sharing the gospel among people within the same culture.  ~ John Piper

Let me be the first to confess: there are times when I suffer from evangelism fatigue. I know I should care, I know I should reach out to them, I know I should talk to them about Jesus – but my motivation meter is hovering at low voltage.  ~ Lee Strobel

Any method of evangelism will work if God is in it.  ~ Leonard Ravenhill

There is no better evangelist in the world than the Holy Spirit.  ~ D.L. Moody

Jesus Christ did not say, ‘Go into the world and tell the world that it is quite right.  ~ C.S. Lews

Go for souls. Go for souls, and go for the worst.  ~ Williams Booth

Lord, make me a crisis man. Let me not be a mile-post on a single road, but make me a fork that men must turn one way or another in facing Christ in me.  ~ Jim Elliot

Preach abroad.It is the cooping yourselves up in rooms that has dampened the work of God, which never was and never will be carried out to any purpose without going into the highways and hedges and compelling men and women to come in.   ~ Jonathan Edwards

The importance of Evangelism and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ is great and the job of every Christian. Please use these Bible verses about evangelism as a guide to witnessing to those that are lost.

Josh, these are such key scriptures in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to others. You know me…evangelism is my first and greatest passion my friend. I had great door to door visits this weekend and these verses are keys to evangelizing the lost for Christ. There is real power in the Word of God…in me? Not so much. God’s Word never returns void or without effect as Isaiah 55:11 says, “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Sterling work my friend.

the reason why god has not come is that the word of god has not reach the entire earth. It is the duty of all christians to reach out to lost souls.Peoples souls are panting for the word of god as the deer pants for the brook of water.I recommend that men of god of this generation make the ministry of evangelism massive in continents such as africa,asia,america,south america and the entire world amen.

I want to become an evangelist. What steps do u take to make sure I am ready to receive my calling?


Jack Wellman October 30, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Hello India. There is no special school or any book-training in particular, but you just “GO!” into all the world and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. The vast majority of the time I go by myself.

Also, type into the “Search Box” near the top,upper right portion of this webpage and type into the blank box words like “evangelism”, “witnessing” and see the many articles that pop up that we have written about how to share your faith with family, door-to-door, strangers, co-workers, atheists, Muslims, you name it. I am glad you want to be an evangelist. Get ready to have doors slammed in your face, called names, laughed at and persecuted but they did the same to Jesus.

Like I said before the rest of 2013 will be spreading the gospel of Christ to the world


Jake Smith April 9, 2014 at 7:21 am

Great job, Josh. This article is very good. Let me also offer up some encouragement: in John 6:44, Jesus says that no one can come to the Him unless the Father draws them in. I give that verse to say that, though we must tell others about Christ, we must not take it personally if they don’t come to Jesus. We must preach the Gospel, and the full Gospel (as best as we can), but we CANNOT save them ourselves; that’s God’s job.
