“organized” church’s
 job to evangelize a
     community.
2. When people say,
“outreach,” they’re
 talking about the
    same thing.
3. Canned
approaches still
      work.
4. Armed with ample
 apologetics, we can
 convince people to
  believe in Christ.
5. Church mission
 statements including
      “evangelism/
outreach” components
     are effective.
6. Revival services
are productive means
    of outreach.
7. Church marketing
  with slick ads and
     postcards are
sufficient to gain new
       members.
8. A growing church
is a sign of effective
      evangelism.
9. Attraction events
  are sufficient to
introduce people to
       Christ.
10. Confrontational
evangelism is effective
  if more Christians
 would just implement
          it.
11. Altar calls
(invitations) at the end
of church services are
 the primary way that
 people make decisions
       for Ch...
12. It’s fair to assume
 that people attending
church have a personal
   relationship with
         Christ.
