Why Do We Plant Churches?
Church planting is joining God in His unstoppable mission to mature & multiply disciples from every nation by the power of the gospel.
The gospel is the good news that the Father sent Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to renew a fallen world for His glory. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus secured the redemption of all God’s people, from all time, to dwell with Him forever. Jesus then commissioned His church to join Him in gathering His people by making disciples (Matthew 28:18–20).
Once He ascended, Jesus sent the promised Holy Spirit to empower His church to be disciple-making disciples in thriving local communities as church-planting churches until He returns (Acts 1:8).
One day Jesus will return and make all things new. Where He is, His glorious church will be enjoying pleasures forever in His presence (Psalm 16:11).
We plant churches because the same God who appointed this glorious end has also appointed the means to get there. God has entrusted His church with the gospel, and He works through the work of His disciple-making disciples to plant church-planting churches until Jesus returns. God is doing something big and breathtaking, and we get to be a part of it. This is why we plant and build churches with the gospel for the glory of God.
