Letter Evangelism

Letter Evangelism

Romans 10:14 “But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed?”

How can an assembly or individual proclaim the Gospel of Christ Jesus when the gates are locked and the doors closed?  Letter Evangelism unlocks the gates and opens closed doors assisting the Holy Spirit in drawing the individual to Christ Jesus.

God does not ask His disciples but commands that they proclaim the Gospel, bringing salvation to an individual and all that heed its message. Therefore, letter Evangelism, like Soft Evangelism, assists the Holy Spirit, allowing the Holy Spirit’s conviction to draw an individual to Christ Jesus.


Below are two sample letters for you to edit and use. 


Dear Neighbor;


I am sorry that my wife and I have not adequately introduced ourselves and welcomed you into the community. Life seems so busy these days with world events capturing our attention, bringing us nothing but anxiety, that we forget what is truly important, like getting to know our neighbors and becoming friends.

Because God has commanded all Christians to love thy neighbor, I have failed God and you by not introducing myself and becoming a good neighbor and friend. Like most, I have been caught up in world events and forgot that God foretold thousands of years ago in Matthew 24 that these world events would occur and not worry.

In the Bible, Ecclesiastes instructs us that living without God is temporal, useless, spending most of our time working laboring for items that bring us only temporary comfort or use.   However, life does not have to be meaningless, but can be meaningful, abundant as stated in John 10:10. The Bible also instructs us that God is love, 1 John 4:7.  Therefore, because God manifests his love through all Christians, I pray I can be your good neighbor and friend.

I am personally reaching out to you because when I accepted the Free Gift of God, as stated in John 3:16, I realized for the first time what living a rich, full life is all about, and I would love for you to share in that same abundant life, full of love that I now enjoy.  So, please, allow me to be your good neighbor and friend. It is only predicated on you calling or visiting our assembly; it’s up to you.   I am looking forward to hearing from you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, or you can visit our assembly, “Your Assembly’s Name.” Of course, if you visit, you’ll be greeted with open arms. But, again, please don’t hesitate; you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Dear; ‘their name.”


  I am sorry that my wife and I have not been able to stop by in person as neighbors should.

Like most, the news reports of war, rumors of war, natural disasters, the pandemic,  etc., have captured our time and brought only anxiety into our lives. 

However, since we cannot meet in person, I want to share a comforting thought that may help you as it has my wife and me.

God cares for us and is always with us. In Isaiah 41:10, God tells us, “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; surely, I will help you, Surely, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” 

Understanding how much God cares for us can give incredible peace of mind as we deal with our troubles and those that surround and try to affect us. To learn more and find more encouraging thoughts, Please visit “your website.”

We hope to talk to you personally and become good friends and neighbors someday soon. So please feel free to get in touch with us at the address below.

Letter Evangelism Starts with Prayer.

Praying for Guidance

Colossians 4:2-3Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;  praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned;”

Only through the divine work of the Holy Spirit will anyone come to Christ Jesus.  Like any evangelism effort, Letter Evangelism is only effective when the empowerment and guidance of the Holy Spirit are present, as stated by Paul in Colossians 4:2-3.  As you begin, begin with prayer, and continue to pray, for your efforts will not be in vain but will ultimately produce fruit.

Stamping for Letter Evangelism

There are basic rules to ensure that your letter will first reach and then be opened.

  1. Hand-Write the envelope.
  2. Use regular postal stamps and not a machine.
  3. Prayer over every letter.

Hebrews 13:20 -21 “God has raised from death our Lord Jesus, who is the Great Shepherd of the sheep as the result of his blood, by which the eternal covenant is sealed. May the God of peace provide you with every good thing you need in order to do his will, and may he, through Jesus Christ, do in us what pleases him. And to Christ be the glory forever and ever! Amen.”
