“”Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, babtizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
Evangelism is the announcement, proclamation, and/or preaching of the gospel, the good news of and about Jesus Christ. The English word “evangelism” comes from the Greek word evangelion. Most literally translated in the noun form, euaggelion means: “gospel” or “good news.” In the verb form (euaggelizesthai), the meaning of the word changes slightly to “announce” or “bring good news.” The Greek word in its various forms appears fifty-five times in the New Testament. At Ocean View, we are willing to go into darkness so our light can be seen. As of 2012, 29% of households on Oak Island reported no faith involvement http://www.perceptgroup.com. The mission was given to us to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We believe that God has commissioned us to reach out to the unchurched in our community. We welcome everyone to come see what Love can do.
