Tell others about Jesus like Brother Paul & Carol do:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of Evangelist and Missionary, or Christian Musician, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

"In the Christmas Season of 2005 we felt blessed to be able to meet with Brother Paul and his wife Carol here in Vancouver, Washington (they were visiting from England) where they serve in full-time Christian ministry.  We call on all who read this page to support them with your prayers."

U.K. Churches Closing Down

Christianity has been in Britain since before Augustine.  It comes as a surprise to learn that this land that produced such Christian giants as John Wycliffe, John Wesley, C. H. Spurgeon, and C. S. Lewis has now become one of the neediest new mission fields in the world!

Apathy reigns while Cults, Islam, and the occult are rapidly on the rise.  Christianity in the U.K. has entered into drastic decline and churches are closing, sometimes even being converted into mosques.

Bible Believing Christians Now Account for Less than 3 Persons per 1000 of the Population

Muslim worshippers flock to the Birmingham City Mosque and now the new Saddam Hussein Memorial Mosque opened in Perry Barr.  Free speech is threatened under new laws favoring Islam as some northern town councils have been taken over.  

Alarmingly, Bible believing Christians now account for less than 3 persons per 1000 of the population.  This nation desperately needs workers willing to devote themselves to spreading the Gospel.

In this Way, a CEM Evangelist Becomes More Than a Single Missionary at Work in the Field 

Cutting Edge Ministries seeks to meet this need by inspiring believers to fulfill Christ's call to the Great Commission in these latter days, but time is of the essence.  You can help!  

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities and powers..." -Ephesians 6:12

The few churches still functioning in Britain with a desire to reach their communities desperately need assistance.  CEM provides training and experience for believers who lack confidence in sharing their faith effectively.  CEM's dynamic team inspires boldness and joy where once dwelt a spirit of defeat and intimidation.  

To Revive the Christian Faith in Britain

In this way, a CEM evangelist becomes more than a single missionary at work in the field.   

By training a multitude of workers, a greater harvest is reaped.  1st century evangelical models are combined with 21st Century technology and media to revive the Christian faith in Britain. _____________________________
