Mission Bite #38: Community Health Evangelism

"Jesus ministered to people's spiritual and physical needs together, but a lot of Christian work in communities focuses only on one or the other. Is it possible to keep both the Great Command (Matt. 22:37, 39) and the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) at the same time? Is it possible for Jesus' followers to work for the good of the whole person (not just their soul) and the whole community (not just the church)? We believe so, and we believe our Community Health Evangelism program, a method of working in communities to bring about spiritual, physical and social health as a way of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, is one way to do that here in Slovakia."
