Evangelism is not:-
Personal testimony. Telling people what God has done for you may well have a place in evangelism. But we are not truly evangelistic until we point away from ourselves to Jesus Christ, what he has done to save us, and how we can receive that salvation.
Social action. Caring for the poor, defending the weak, and working for justice are all close to the heart of God. By such means we commend the gospel, and demonstrate its outworking in every part of our lives and our world. But they must never be allowed to replace the gospel, which is a message to be told, and to be told with words.
Apologetics. Providing reasons and evidence for the Christian faith, and defending it against it critics have an important contribution to make both with regard to convincing unbelievers and confirming believers. But apologetics is not evangelism, and must not distract us from telling the good news about Jesus Christ.
