Church Planting

Church planting is the process of going to an area, meeting people and calling them to two things: faith in Christ, and a commitment to one another to meet together in the name of Jesus to do the things God wants a church to do. Church planting is successful when God works with the church planters to bring people together in the will of God to worship and serve Christ together.

There is a lot that can be learned about church planting. It requires wisdom from God, as well as a calling from God to do it. Whether you are called as a lead church planter, or to be part of a church planting team, it is hoped that the articles and videos in this section will be helpful to you.

Why the manifest presence of the glory of God is vital in our church meetings

I was talking with two of the pastors of a large church about why it seems we change so slow after hearing so many sermons week after week in church for years. We asked ourselves: why is it so? What’s missing? Why do the sermons have so little effect on our hearts? Just imagine, if […]

Ministry = doing the will of God specific to His call for you

There is so much confusion among believers (and I was confused too for a while) regarding what is ministry. Let me give you a simple definition: Ministry = fulfilling God’s call for your life = doing the will of God for your life Yes, it’s nice to help sometimes where you can, but if you […]

The Jesus Model of Evangelism in Luke 10

Over the last 50 years, and even before, believers in Jesus Christ have dared to break with church tradition more and more and return to believe in some of the audacious statements of Jesus Christ in the Bible.  When I was a boy, it was rare for people to believe that Christians could engage in […]

Growing Pains in the Early Church

I was reading this morning once again the passage from Acts Chapter 6:1-7, which talks about a problem the Early Church encountered. Basically what happened this. On the Day of Pentecost, a lot of Jewish people from the Diaspora had come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feasts, and they believed the gospel as Peter and […]

Reality Church – by Ian Vincent – Introduction

I believed, therefore I have spoken… Psalm 116:10a, 2 Cor. 4:13 1. Introduction Reality-based TV shows have become popular in recent years. They reveal an inner desire in people to connect with something perhaps a little more realistic than a Hollywood-scripted version of reality. And this is also reflected in a parallel movement in Christianity […]

Commentary on the Book of Colossians ch 1:1-8

In recent times I have really been enjoying reading and pondering on the Book of Colossians. There are some really marvelous truths in this book. The central theme of this book is the Centrality and Sufficiency of Jesus Christ. Introduction and Background to the Book of Colossians Paul is writing to a church in Turkey […]

The Holy Spirit Empowers EVANGELISM, not excuses for disobedience

Jesus Christ shed his blood and suffered more than we can imagine to provide a gospel of salvation for people. After rising from the dead, He commanded his followers not only to LIVE THE GOSPEL, but ALSO to preach this gospel to all, and train others to do so. You cannot live the gospel without preaching it. Because Jesus told us to preach it. You need to use words.
