Fundamental to the task of this committee is the definiition of evangelism given by Archbishop William Temple:

“Evangelism is the presentation of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit in such ways that persons may be led to believe in Him as Savior and follow Him as Lord within the fellowship of His Church.”

This definition unites the personal and communal aspects of discipleship: personally, we come to accept Jesus as Savior, and, communally, we come to understand His teaching and, together with fellow believers, follow Him as our risen Lord.
