Why church planting?
The church is God’s primary vehicle to advance His kingdom on earth. The goal of evangelism and mission work is to establish new churches and strengthen existing churches. It is the fundamental role to empower local churches to multiply by aiding the recruitment of new leaders and facilitate them to train others to plant churches in their own community.
Apostle Paul planted churches
The greatest missionary in history, Apostle Paul, had two-fold strategy. First, he went into the largest city of the region Acts 16:9,12, and second, he planted churches in each city Titus 1:5.
Reach the unchurched people.
Many denominational scholars have confirmed and demonstrated that; the average new church gains most of its new members (60-80%) from the ranks of people who are not Christian.
Churches over 10-15 years of age gain 80-90% of new members by transfer from other churches. Church planting is the only way that we can be sure we are going to increase the number of followers of Jesus Christ.
