Staying Sharp Evangelistically: The Theology Propelling Our Gospel Mission
In an age of constant distraction, Christians need to stay focused on the evangel, the good news of Jesus Christ. Our Lord has sent us on an urgent mission to declare His evangel among all people. Our EFCA Statement of Faith reminds us that “God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ” (Article 10).
At Stay Sharp 2022, Greg Strand, executive director of theology and credentialing (EFCA), will help us to think more clearly and deeply about the theology that undergirds and motivates our gospel mission in the 21st century.
- What is the gospel?
- What is repentance?
- What will be the destiny of the un-evangel-ized?
- How do we declare and defend the gospel in a post-Christian secular age?
This year, we’re also going to hear from experienced church leaders from across the district about how they bring this theology to street-level in their own evangelism efforts.
Bring your own questions and insights as we do theology together in community. Learn more by watching this video with Matt Mitchell, Jack Wilson, Kerry Doyal and Greg Strand!
