The apostle Paul’s sentiment, “Woe is me if I preach not the Gospel” captures the heart that our missionaries seek to have for those in spiritual darkness, without hope and without God in the world. Because the Great Commission begins with the assumption that we will be evangelizing the lost, GFA missionaries are under compulsion to get the Gospel to the lost people of the world. In his short version of the Great Commission, the Gospel writer Mark commands us to “preach the Gospel to every person.” This is non-negotiable. Fervent evangelism is the initial effort of all genuine missionary activity. It is the heartbeat of true missions and naturally leads to the ultimate goal of planting indigenous churches.
