Spreading the gospel is the locomotive work of the church. Forging passenger cars of gold is in vain, because if the locomotive cannot be started, everything else remains at a standstill.
With the localized “Happiness Group” evangelistic strategy, Blessed & Blessing Church had baptized over 3,000 people in only six years, setting the trend for Chinese churches worldwide to devote to Happiness Group.
—What is Happiness Group?
—Why do Christians, who have been baptized less than six months, regard evangelism as their lifelong missions?
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:46-47)
Through the book, Pastor YANG Shi Ru of Blessed & Blessing Church will guide readers to have a glimpse of modern version of Acts.
