Evangelism and Outreach
Redeeming Grace Church is committed to evangelism of lost souls. One of our three core pillars is to "evangelize the lost". Every true Christian must be engaged in reaching lost friends, family, neighbors and strangers with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Apart from saving faith in Jesus Christ, when a person dies they will die in their sins and be judged as guilty sinners by a holy and righteous God and be condemned to an eternity in the Lake of Fire. We must go with love to the lost around us and tell them of Jesus Christ who died for sinners.
To help the saints at RGC be better equipped to share the gospel with the lost and to answer questions, we will begin a DVD series by Ray Comfort on Thursday evenings prior to prayer on "Tough Questions" that get asked in evangelism.
Another way to help train and equip believers to share the gospel is to take them out to bring the gopsel to the lost. They can watch, learn and even pray while they are observing. Weekly outreach to pass out gospel tracts, preach and talk with the lost include:
- SIU-E open air preaching, passing out tracts, gospel conversations (normally every Wednesday 11:30 - 1:15 during school year)
- downtown Alton preaching, passing out tracts and conversations (Saturday evening, 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.)
