Evangelism

Many people find evangelism to be an offensive word, thinking only of people knocking on doors to harass you into converting to their faith. 

That's NOT what evangelism is about at St. Andrew!

 

Then what is Evangelism at St. Andrew? We are commanded by Jesus Christ to "go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit"  (Matthew 28:19)

 

St. Andrew takes this commission to heart by being invitational and welcoming.  It is in how we live our lives that we are to be examples of Christ in our communities.  We hope that by being beacons of light in a dark and lonely world, we will invite people to discover that which transforms our lives into lives of hope and joy...the Grace of a loving and merciful God.   There is an expression that goes "your life might be the only Bible some people read."  As Christians we need to be prepared to tell our own "God story"... that story that explains to others why we align ourselves with Jesus Christ, why we go to church to worship with a community of faith called St. Andrew Lutheran Church.  We need to live differently because of Jesus Christ.

 

We open our doors and invite you in to find and build your relationship with God...to begin to write your own "God story."  In the process we use a variety of tools and activities to get your attention:
