Truly, there are so many thing done by today contemporary churches that are not evangelism.
1 Invitation to church service and program is not evangelism rather, evangelism is a concerted self-conscious effort to confront the unbeliever with the truth about Christ with the view of leading that unbeliever to repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus. Many contemporary churches view invitation to service as a form of modern day evangelism. Meanwhile, evangelism aims at sharing the good news of Jesus to unbelievers. As Christians, this is the great commission giving to us according to Matthew 28:18-20
[18] And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, all authority has been giving to Me in heaven and on earth
[19] Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the name of the Holy spirit
[20] teaching them to observe all thing that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of age, amen
2 Evangelism does not begin from a position of authority but evangelism is a command from God to believer to go into the world and preach the good news or gospel to all. many local churches go about evangelizing as though those unsaved ones are less than them. They engage in evangelism with a superior mindset and attitude. They confront and condemn the unbelievers in a negative way instead of preaching the message of salvation, which is the message of love(John3:16) for God so loved the world that he have his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
