Question: What are the fruits or characteristics of an Evangelist?

Answer: The meaning of the Greek word translated as evangelists is a preacher of the gospel. An evangelist is concerned with the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and a person obeys/experiences the gospel in repentance (death), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit (resurrection) . An evangelist is also very concerned with the equipping of each member of the body of Christ to present the gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers.
