Literature evangelism (or Colporteur Ministry), has been a sacred work since its inception. Dedicated men and women have sacrificed time and energy for the spreading of the gospel through truth-filled literature. Millions have been blessed and thousands have joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church as a result of this ministry.
In these present times, literature evangelism continues to be the medium through which God’s people bring light, hope, and healing to a world that is in desperate need of the truth as it is in Jesus Christ.
Mrs. White says “the canvassing work, properly conducted, is missionary work of the highest order, and it is as good and successful a method as can be employed for placing before the people the important truths for this time. The importance of the work of the ministry is unmistakable, but many who are hungry for the bread of life have not the privilege of hearing the word from God’s delegated preachers. For this reason, it is essential that our publications be widely circulated. Thus, the message will go where the living preacher cannot go, and the attention of many will be called to the important events connected with the closing scenes of this world’s history.” CM 6.1
