Why is Evangelism vital to Salvation?



Question: “What is evangelism and why is it so vital to salvation?”




Bible Answers

Evangelism is the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news (Romans 10:15).


And why is evangelism vital to salvation?

But how are they to call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? (Romans 10:9, 14).


Why is salvation important to God?

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).  Because He desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4).


What is our part in God’s plan of salvation for the lost?

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:20). …you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth (Acts 1:8). Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).


And he said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned (Mark 16:15-16).


But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). And we likewise are to share God’s love with others.


Hopefully the unsaved will

Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out (Acts 3:19).


We are called upon by God to be His representatives to the world, spreading His gospel, that we may demonstrate His love to the lost that they to may be saved.


Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these (Mark 12:30-31). The greatest way we can show God’s love to others is to spread God’s saving gospel - by evangelizing.


Without evangelism - spreading the Word of God, billions of souls would have never known the sweat salvation of God. God uses us, if we obey, to bring Him lost souls.
