[]Preface

The world is fast changing and we get things done quick and better than before due to the advancement of technology. This has made communication easier with much fun and interaction.

This book was written out of curiosity and my sheer belief in engaging my world with the Gospel using the prevailing tool effectively.

It comprises of eight vital themes in championing the cause of Christ using the Major platforms that the Internet has avail us in the 21st Century, just as Apostle Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel.

I hope you will find this book resourceful, though it might not be a perfect work of art for you to engage the world for Christ but I know it will serve as an eye opener as we see that Jesus is enthroned in our world!

I ask for feedbacks using the available channels to contact me!

[] Introduction

The World Renowned Missionary of the 20th Century, William Carey wrote his one of his powerful tract about the need to “use means” for the fulfillment of the Great Commission, one such means in the 21st century is information technology.

Information technology has grown over the years that the breakthrough of the internet has brought a lot ease to the rate at which information is sent and receive.

The internet is a powerful tool that is indispensable in this age and since its discovery in the 1980’s, more then, as a tool by the Military to send and receive signal in a twinkle of an eye. It has evolved into an information superhighway through the invention of World Wide Web (www) and e-mail in 1990 by Tim Berner-Lee.

The internet therefore is an interconnection of computer networks or its equivalents all over the world altogether by satellite and telephone, connecting users with service networks such as e-mail and World Wide Web.

As internet becomes to be a rallying point for different people, nation, race, to meet and communicate, share ideas, relate, advertise, push for a cause whether just or unjust, it can also be a place in which the Church can stand for Christ, relate with others, in fact, people of other faith.

Hence, Internet Evangelism is the conscious application of the power of the web for Outreach, through evangelistic website, Chat rooms, e-mails, Forums, Social Media, blogs to bring Unbelievers to Christ and have them be His disciple.

It should be noted that as the world experiences an outburst in population growth, the rate at which people uses the internet also increases, so reaching the world with the Gospel should be the desire of every believer using this means.

Caveat emptor: Internet evangelism is not the perfect solution to reaching the world but it is one way which I think could be exploited. Let it not take the place of other conventional methods of evangelism e.g. door to door, open air, TV or Radio Evangelism etc. It should enhance and make them more effective.
