    "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy               Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…" Matthew 28:19-20

     The First District Evangelical Board was organized for the spiritual training of ministers who are non-pastors,
      to promote more preaching opportunities. The members have monthly meetings and continue to welcome
      every opportunity afforded them to preach the unhindered gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


     The scriptural mandate of evangelism is Matt. 8:19-20, called the Great Commission. Evangelism— "Go ye
      therefore, and teach all nations"—is a command to go and make disciples of all nations. It is a two pronged
      enterprise. It involves winning the lost and making disciples of those won.

                    (1) "baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
                    (2) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." 
                    (3) Going and witnessing, with the intent of reaching and winning the lost
                    (4) Making disciples of those won
                                               

                                                          Evangelism is reaching and teaching all nations
