Title: The%20New%20Testament%20Church


1
The New Testament Church
  • Evangelism

2
Introduction
  • Primary mission of the church is to evangelize
    the world.
  • Evangelism means good news one
    who proclaims the good news.
  • This fits the spiritual design that God designed
    for the work of the church.

3
The Importance of This Work
  • Seen in the universal need of salvation.
  • All are under sin
  • What then? Are we better than they? Not at all.
    For we have previously charged both Jews and
    Greeks that they are all under sin. As it is
    written There is none righteous, no, not one.
    Romans 39,10
  • For all have sinned and fall short of the glory
    of God. Romans 323

4
The Importance of This Work
  • Seen in the universal need of salvation.
  • All are under sin
  • But the Scripture has confined all under sin,
    that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might
    be given to those who believe. Galatians 322
  • And you He made alive, who were dead in
    trespasses and sins, in which you once walked
    according to the course of this world, according
    to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit
    who now works in the sons of disobedience.
    Ephesians 21

5
The Importance of This Work
  • Seen in the universal need of salvation.
  • All are under sin
  • That at that time you were without Christ, being
    aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and
    strangers from the covenants of promise, having
    no hope and without God in the world. Ephesians
    212

6
The Importance of This Work
  • The Gospel of Christ is Gods power to save
    sinful men.
  • For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,
    for it is the power of God to salvation for
    everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also
    for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God
    is revealed from faith to faith as it is
    written, the just shall live by faith. Romans
    116,17

7
The Importance of This Work
  • Corinthians saved by the gospel.
  • Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel
    which I preached to you, which also you received
    and in which you stand, by which also you are
    saved, if you hold fast that word which I
    preached to you--unless you believed in vain. For
    I delivered to you first of all that which I also
    received that Christ died for our sins according
    to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and
    that He rose again the third day according to the
    Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 151-4

8
The Importance of This Work
  • Words preached to Cornelius.
  • So I sent to you immediately, and you have done
    well to come. Now therefore, we are all present
    before God, to hear all the things commanded you
    by God. Acts 1033
  • Who will tell you words by which you and all
    your household will be saved. Acts 1114

9
The Importance of This Work
  • Begotten by the gospel.
  • For though you might have ten thousand
    instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many
    fathers for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you
    through the gospel. 1 Corinthians 415
  • Having been born again, not of corruptible seed
    but incorruptible, through the word of God which
    lives and abides forever. 1 Peter 123

10
The Importance of This Work
  • Cleansed by the word of God.
  • You are already clean because of the word
    which I have spoken to you. John 153
  • That He might sanctify and cleanse her with the
    washing of water by the word.
    Ephesians 526

11
The Importance of This Work
  • Seed is the word of God!
  • When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and
    does not understand it, then the wicked one comes
    and snatches away what was sown in his heart.
    This is he who received seed by the wayside.
    Matthew 1319
  • Now the parable is this The seed is the word
    of God. Luke 811

12
The Importance of This Work
  • Gospel is veiled to some.
  • But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled
    to those who are perishing, whose minds the god
    of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest
    the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ,
    who is the image of God, should shine on them.
    2 Corinthians
    43,4

13
The Importance of This Work
  • Partakers of the promises of Christ.
  • That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, of the
    same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ
    through the gospel.
    Ephesians 36

14
The Importance of This Work
  • Give inheritance among sanctified.
  • So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to
    the word of His grace, which is able to build you
    up and give you an inheritance among all those
    who are sanctified.
    Acts 2032

15
The Importance of This Work
  • Life and immorality brought to light.
  • But has now been revealed by the appearing of
    our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death
    and brought life and immortality to light through
    the gospel.
    2 Timothy 110

16
The Importance of This Work
  • Made known unto obedience of faith.
  • Now to Him who is able to establish you
    according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus
    Christ, according to the revelation of the
    mystery kept secret since the world began but now
    has been made manifest, and by the prophetic
    Scriptures has been made known to all nations,
    according to the commandment of the everlasting
    God, for obedience to the faithto God, alone
    wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever.

    Romans 1625-27

17
The Church is Gods Agency in This Work of
Evangelization
  • Church compared to householder who goes out to
    hire laborers.
  • For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner
    who went out early in the morning to hire
    laborers for his vineyard. Now when he had agreed
    with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent
    them into his vineyard. And he went out about the
    third hour and saw others standing idle in the
    marketplace, and said to them, 'You also go into
    the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give
    you.' So they went.
    Matthew 201-4

18
The Church is Gods Agency in This Work of
Evangelization
  • Church the sending agency.
  • Now in the church that was at Antioch there were
    certain prophets and teachers Barnabas, Simeon
    who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen
    who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch,
    and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord and
    fasted, the Holy Spirit said, "Now separate to Me
    Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have
    called them. Then, having fasted and prayed, and
    laid hands on them, they sent them away.

    Acts 131-3

19
The Church is Gods Agency in This Work of

  • Church the sowing agency.
  • ... Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he
    sowed, some seed fell by the wayside and the
    birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony
    places, where they did not have much earth and
    they immediately sprang up because they had no
    depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were
    scorched, and because they had no root they
    withered away. And some fell among thorns, and
    the thorns sprang up and choked them. But others
    fell on good ground and yielded a crop some a
    hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    Matthew133-8

The Church is Gods Agency in This Work of
Evangelization
  • Church the pillar and ground of the truth.
  • These things I write to you, though I hope to
    come to you shortly but if I am delayed, I write
    so that you may know how you ought to conduct
    yourself in the house of God, which is the church
    of the living God, the pillar and ground of the
    truth.
    1
    Timothy 314,15

  • Wisdom of God made known by the church.
  • To the intent that now the manifold wisdom of
    God might be made known by the church to the
    principalities and powers in the heavenly places
    according to the eternal purpose which He
    accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Ephesians 310,11

22

  • God to be glorified in the church in all ages.
  • Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly
    abundantly above all that we ask or think,
    according to the power that works in us, to Him
    be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all
    generations, forever and ever.

    Ephesians 320,21

23
The Church is Gods Agency in This Work of

  • Building up the body of Christ is a mission of
    the church.
  • And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some
    prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and
    teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the
    work of ministry, for the edifying of the body
    of Christ.

    Ephesians 411,12

  • Churches of Macedonia.
  • I robbed other churches, taking wages from them
    to minister to you. And when I was present with
    you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for
    what I lacked the brethren who came from
    Macedonia supplied. And in everything I kept
    myself from being burdensome to you, and so I
    will keep myself.

    2 Corinthians 118,9

    Christ. We give thanks to God always for you all,
    making mention of you in our prayers, remembering
    without ceasing your work of faith, labor of
    love...

  • Church at Philippi.
  • I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
    always in every prayer of mine making request for
    you all with joy, for your fellowship in the
    gospel from the first day until now.

    Philippians 13-5
  • Nevertheless you have done well that you shared
    in my distress. Now you Philippians know also
    that in the beginning of the gospel, when I
    departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me
    concerning giving and receiving but you only.
    Philippians 414,15

  • Church at Antioch.
  • Now when they had come and gathered the church
    together, they reported all that God had done
    with them, and that He had opened the door of
    faith to the Gentiles. So they stayed there a
    long time with the disciples.
    Acts 1427,28

  • Church at Jerusalem.
  • Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that
    time a great persecution arose against the church
    which was at Jerusalem and they were all
    scattered throughout the regions of Judea and
    Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men
    carried Stephen to his burial, and made great
    lamentation over him.
    Acts 81,2

    Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,
    and to the end of the earth.
    Acts 18
