      Logan and Ogne said, “New churches are the most effective at reaching unchurched pre-Christians.”33 Schaller said, “If you are interested in reaching new people, by far the most effective way to do this is through church planting.” 34 Elmer Towns has made similar statements from his perspective on the value of church planting to evangelism. The evangelism we find in the book of Acts, at its mature level, ruled no one out. It drew the circle of compassion large enough to include every person and “every kind” of person. It furnishes a challenging example for Southern Baptists and for all contemporary Christians. The methods of the first century are basic to effective evangelism.
