Evangelism is the announcement, proclamation, and/or preaching of the gospel(1 Corinthians 15:1-4), the good news of and about Jesus Christ. Therefore, the gospel is a communicated message--communicated in verbal (Luke 7:22;Romans 10:14-17) and/or written (Luke 1:1-4) form.
The English word “evangelism” comes from the Greek word “euaggelion.” 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. In addition to the before-mentioned translations, the Greek word is also translated as “preach.”
Evangelism, the communication of the gospel message, includes a warning, an explanation, and a call. Evangelism includes warning people about sin and the consequences of sin (John 16:8; Acts 24:25; Revelation 20:11-15). It includes an explanation of God’s remedy for sin--the gospel (Acts 8:29-35; Romans 3:21-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21). And it includes the clear call to repent (to turn from sin and to turn toward God) and believe the gospel, by faith (Mark 1:15;Luke 13:1-5; Acts 17:29-31; Romans 1:17; Romans 10:9-13)
Evangelism, is the heart beat of God. Bishop Dr. Kenroy Cuffy and the members of Judah are committed to evangelizing the world for Jesus.
The Purpose of Missions
The Great Commission was not given to missionaries, pastors, Jews, Gentiles or Americans. The Great Commission was given to the local church, which is made up of individual members. Therefore, missions involves local churches partnering with missionaries to fulfill the church’s responsibility to evangelize the world. To meet people wherever they are and help to understand their self worth and restore dignity to their lives through the word and love of God.
To nurture youth and their families in Christian discipleship through worship, fellowship, study, and mission.
The youth ministry of JWCM is an engaging and welcoming community for its youth and their friends that:
Surrounds youth with an unconditional love that fosters genuine relationships,
Anchors them in the joys and traditions of the Christian faith,
Energizes and equips them to extend the love of Christ to the world.
Vision and Mission Statement
The First Lady and women of JWCM want to make every woman know that God is crazy about her and loves her no matter where she has come from or what she has done. As God's Choice Women, we desire to grow more in love with God, His word, and each other, and to demonstrate that love by the way we live.
Through discipleship, Bible studies, worship, prayer, fellowship, love for one another, and service, the God's Choice Women's ministry believes that God will transform us from ordinary to extraordinary women after God's own heart.
Men's Ministry Core Values
Every ministry of the church needs to have Jesus at its core.
The goal of the Men's Ministry is to bring men into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. This relationship, once it is strengthened, will drive everything that a man does. It can only be done through education about God, who he is, and what he stands for which develops a standard for men.
Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 2:8, that he wanted “the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.” This is significant because Paul is advocating for men to pray, worship, and lead the church in peace. In other words, men—just like women—are essential to the mission of the church.
Every Christian is called to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and in turn, make disciples for Him. The men’s ministry is an important part of accomplishing this mission but must be infused with the Word of God.
Paul emphasized to Timothy the need for men to be at peace with one another as they served Christ together. Relationships take time, honesty, and patience. An effective men’s ministry has activities and settings that encourage bonding to take place and provide an environment for men to dig in on the issues all men face, discuss them in a safe setting, and be challenged in how to attack these issues in life.
The first ministry of every Christian man is their home if they are married. Therefore, JWCM men’s ministry believes in training our men to be the husbands, fathers, and leaders God designed us to be. This falls into the purpose of a men’s ministry, to make disciples of the men you engage and equip them for the work of ministry.
