Nigeria is a very religious country. In fact, you can rightly say that Nigeria is one of the most religious countries in the world. Christianity is one of most dominant religions in the country with the other being Islam. One of the ways churches in Nigeria increase their membership or worshipers is by conducting street evangelism.

Street evangelism simply means holding a few hours of preaching the gospel in a location outside the church premises and that is in a public place such as streets. It is can also be called a crusade in some churches. Most churches claim that evangelism is an act done in obedience to Jesus Christís command in Mark 16 verse 15 where Christ commanded his disciples to go into the entire world to preach the good news to all nations. So it is not unusually to see a church holding a street evangelism anywhere in Nigeria, especially in the western and southern parts of the country.

The process of conducting a street evangelism is basically the same for all denominations. Some denominations prefer to make it a house to house thing, where they visit strangers in their homes and tell them about Christ. Other denominations prefer to make it a general evangelism, in which the church set up loud instrumentals, so that people in their various homes can hear the gospel without leaving their homes. Which ever way the evangelism is conducted, the goal is always the same; that is to tell sinners that Jesus loves them, and He will forgive and accept them if they repent with all sincerity.
