E and E

Church services need both E and E. What is E and E, you ask? It means Evangelism and Edification - Evangelize as You Edify, Edify as You Evangelize :
The greatest thing an unbeliever needs to hear is the gospel. They need to be evangelized with the good news of Jesus Christ. The great thing a believer needs to hear is the gospel. They need to be edified with the good news of Jesus Christ. When there is a robust commitment to preaching Christ from all of Scriptures, unbelievers will be evangelized and believers will be edified.
