One reason churches do not participate in church planting is because they believe it is beyond their abilities. And I would agree that church planting is beyond most churches as long as we use the typical western definition of church planting.
When we turn to the Scriptures, we do not see church planting as something complex requiring high-capacity charismatic leaders, great children’s programs, amazing praise music, and enough money to start a small business. When we turn to the Scriptures, we come to see church planting as evangelism that results in disciples made that results in those disciples self-identifying as local churches.
In this episode, I address the simple nature of church planting and cast a vision of the possible for your church.
