A recent study by Global Media Outreach shows that more than half of people who made a decision for Jesus over the Internet have subsequently shared their faith with others, the Christian Post reports. Of the more than 100,000 people surveyed around the world, 51 percent said they shared their faith three times or more and 37 percent said they shared their faith at least once or twice. The study indicates that "online evangelism and discipleship is truly measurable and effective," said Walt Wilson, founder and chairman of Global Media Outreach. "These findings are remarkable because they reveal that online evangelism isn't just an in-the-moment decision, and people continue to grow in their faith after they have indicated a decision."
