Everyone should get to play a part in seeing others come to know Jesus
Many Christians see evangelism as uncomfortable, unnatural or only for a select few experts.
Evangelism is always relational and not just informational. This relational dimension of Alpha is what speaks loudest to a culture that suffers from increasing feelings of loneliness and social isolation, where the primary question is no longer “What do I believe?” but “Where do I belong?”
Re-imagining how the Church shares life, faith and Jesus.
|Alpha helps create a space for encounter|
|People come to discover a relationship with Jesus and experience the Holy Spirit.|
|Alpha creates a culture of invitation|
|As people invite their friends to Alpha they get to experience the joy of seeing first-hand the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation. This encouragement helps entire church communities recapture the joy of evangelism.|
|Alpha creates a discipleship and leadership pipeline|
|Guests who come on Alpha will often come back as helpers to the next one, and integrate into the greater life of the church.|
What Alpha can do over time?

Expectancy and prayer

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
– John 17:23
Reach a broken world
“My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”
– 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Alpha is well received by churches and greatly used by God. Through open conversations and connection over meals, non-believers have the chance to explore the Christian faith I sincerely hope that more churches will adopt this approach to evangelism.

The gospel is unchanging, but ways to spread the good news must keep changing to adapt to a modern audience! I commend Alpha for sharing the gospel with the youth in ways that are both innovative and engaging, yet also simple and effective. Come and explore!
