NEARLY 4000 people in the UK “found salvation” through internet evangelism over Christmas, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association reports.

The organisation believes that internet evangelism is the key to continuing its mission to “share the Good News of Jesus through all means necessary” in the 21st century.

Its director of ministry in the UK, Lee Searle, said that the internet was “the perfect platform for reaching the entire country”.

He said: “Using adverts and ‘keywords’ in Google, we are able to make sure that people who are searching for answers find Jesus. Those browsing the web will see adverts for our PeaceWithGod site, and thousands are clicking through.”

Mr Searle said that using Google data, the Association could “get a real idea of the state of the nation”.

“We know that the gospel is compelling. . . These results show that many across the UK know that they need the forgiveness and Salvation that can only be found in Jesus.”

The Association, founded by the Revd Billy Graham, seeks to spread Christianity throughout the world “by any means necessary”.
