1. What is “Church Planting”?
Jesus used the term “ecclesia” in Matthew 16:18, “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”
Church Planters aim to launch permanent, multiplying and lifesaving congregations as communities that worship the Lord Jesus Christ. In order to truly fulfill Lord’s Great Commission, setting up churches is an indispensable task to nurture individuals, establish and perpetuate Gospel history in all local areas. It builds home both for spiritual and physical activities to realize the Gospel in all walks of life.
The church is founded on firm confessions of faith towards Jesus and expressed in a united and harmonious ways through diverse programs.
Church Planters are those who follow the calling of the Lord for one of the most significant project in building God’s Kingdom.
2. How to become a Church Planter
First Step: Calling
Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19) Every believer is called to practice and perform what Jesus commanded in this verse and give their lives to the commitment for God’s Kingdom.
Church Planting takes the most significant role in the fulfillment of the Great Commission that the Lord declared. It is universal and common to all Christians, yet, each individual should integrate their life with their personal will and conviction.
