It has ever been my view, on my understanding of the New Testament, that the work of evangelism is to be done regularly by the local church and not by sporadic efforts and campaigns.  More and more as modern influences tend to disintegrate and disrupt the recognised and divinely ordered units in life, such as the family and the home, shall we need to stress the unique value and importance of the church and church life as the vital unit in the spiritual realm.  The glory of life in the church is that it is corporate without violating individual personality as is done by crowds and mass meetings and movements.

As we face the future we are more determined than ever ‘not to know any thing save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified,’ and, eschewing all worldly and carnal methods and devices, to rely upon the power of the Holy Spirit.
