Statement of faith

THE BIBLE
We believe that every word in the original writings of the Holy Scriptures is inspired by God and therefore without error. We accept the Holy Scriptures as the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks.

GOD
We believe there is one true God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.

HUMANKIND
We believe that man was originally created in the image of God but fell into sin through disobedience to a divine command and, therefore, brought all mankind under condemnation. Man's nature is, therefore, such that he is totally unable to please God for acquisition of a right standing before Him.

SALVATION
We believe that salvation is a gift received only through a personal trust in Jesus Christ Who was man's substitute for sin. This gift is given by the unmerited favor of God and is given without regard to any and all human works or goodness. All those who accept this gift by faith are eternally secure in Him.

JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became perfect Man without ceasing to be perfect Deity through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit. He voluntarily paid for the sins of all people by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. The third day, He arose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died. He ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and apply the saving work of Christ to people. He convicts sinners of their need for Christ, baptizes them into the Body of Christ, imparts new life to them, indwells them and seals them until the day of redemption. Each believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit and in so doing, his faith will be manifested in works pleasing to God.

THE CHURCH
We believe that God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly in a local church for worship, for participation in ordinances, for evangelism, for edification through the Scriptures, and for mutual encouragement.

THE END
We believe in the imminent return of Christ for His Church, the eternal state of punishment for the unsaved, and the eternal state of blessing for the saved.

History

A Distinctive Approach
In 1973, God burdened a young Dallas Theological Seminary graduate named Larry Moyer to start an evangelistic association to champion the gospel with a commitment to three distinctives:
A clear presentation of the gospel.
A careful handling of Scripture.
A core doctrine of grace.
Armed with a passion for those who don't know Jesus and a God-given calling, Larry created a simple method of sharing the gospel that anyone could learn. His "Bad News/Good News" method has become a cornerstone of sharing the gospel for thousands.

Evangelism Training
Throughout the 1980's, EvanTell's impact from large-scale events grew, but churches who were hungering to be evangelistic in their everyday ministry began asking Larry to capture his passion and message in a way that could be used by anyone. As a result, EvanTell developed the You Can Tell It! and You Can Preach It! Seminars, which promote the three distinctives.

In the 1990's, the interest in EvanTell's clear and simple gospel approach continued to gain tremendous momentum and we began certifying instructors. The new model boosted our reach exponentially and the ministry quickly experiencing a worldwide impact.

Expansion
During the early 2000's, Larry challenged the ministry's Board of Directors to help him ensure that the ministry would live well beyond him and to continue boldly declaring the gospel according to the core principles God burdened him with in 1973. God has honored that request. Through the generous support of individuals, churches, and foundations who are committed to declaring the gospel through grace-filled methods and resources, the scope and impact of the ministry has exploded.

Today, in-depth training seminars, workbooks, tracts, and innovative evangelism resources are just a slice of EvanTell, yet these resources provide the fuel for ministry taking place all over the world. We are honored to train a fast-growing network of evangelism instructors, mentoring entire churches, and activating believers of all ages, walks, and cultures to boldly declare the gospel.
