ABOUT THE WORLD EVANGELISM TEAM
NDCBF strives to keep close to the biblical model concerning World Evangelism. Jesus’ last words: "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations (cultures)” Matthew 28:19, and Acts 1:8 “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."
In Acts 1:8 the sentence construction is NOT “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria AND the uttermost part of the earth,” but it is (a very peculiar way of expressing things, and that peculiar expression makes the point) “BOTH in Jerusalem, AND in Judea, AND in Samaria, AND unto the uttermost part of the earth.” The sentence construction means that a Christian is to have EQUAL and SIMULTANEOUS impact in all four places in the list. So the emphasis is not on SUCCESSIVE impact (FIRST in Jerusalem, THEN in Judea, etc), but on SIMULTANEOUS and EQUAL impact in all the places in the succession.
World Evangelism consists of the following teams:
VISION - To see NDCBF members actively reaching out to their family, friends, and areas of influence with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that each NDCBF member has a missions field. It could be to family, neighbor, co-workers or others. The goal of Evangelism Initiative is to help prepare our membership for the task ahead.
VISION - To see NDCBF members impacting partnering with local ministries and see each ministry increasingly become more productive in carrying out God's will in their ministries. The goal is not primarily social action, but having the Gospel message communicated in a holistic manner to help individuals move from man/self-dependency to God dependency.
