Why Start A New Church?
This is probably the most common question we receive, and when it comes down to it, the answer is simple: the planting of new Gospel-centered churches is a highly effective way to make disciples.
Biblically speaking, the church has been mandated to do one major thing: make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).
Practically, planting new churches is a great method to make disciples. Sadly, the statistics reveal that many churches are not only shrinking in number, but are literally dying and closing their doors forever. New churches bring excitement to existing Christian communities spurring them on to live "sent" in their families, neighbourhoods, cities and the rest of the world.
