'''Evangelism''' is the process of [[preaching]] or [[proselytizing]] the Christian Gospel.  It is mostly associated with [[Fundamentalist]] [[Protestant]] sects of [[Christianity]]. It is based on the Greek word ευανγγελιον, meaning 'good news'. Though most, if not all, Christian sects stress the importance of evangelism, it is considered absolutely essential to [[Fundamentalist]] sects. It is also known as the Great Commission or "winning souls for Christ". Christians point to Matt. 28, 19-20 in the [[Bible]] as one of [[Jesus Christ]]'s commands to his followers to "preach the gospel (ευανγγελιον) to all nations." Evangelism is the main driving force of Christian [[missionary]] activity, and as such has contributed to the violent deaths of uncounted numbers of people.
